The Book of Imaginary Beings

7.00

Jorge Luis Borges's 1957 compilation of 116 "strange creatures conceived through time and space by the human imagination," from dragons and centaurs to Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat and the Morlocks of H. G. Wells's The Time Machine.

A lavish feast of exotica, The Book of Imaginary Beings will delight readers of classic fantasy as well as Borges's many admirers.

Published by Avon/Discus (1970). A well-loved copy with much yellowing and foxing, the spine bent in such a way that the book has a bit of an overbite. (What’s that called in bookselling terms?) Has that really nice vanilla scent found in books of this vintage.

256-page paperback book.
