Comments & Further Information

This is a LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK (350 copies only). This is a first printing of the Tartarus Edition.  The Autobiography of Arthur Machen was first published by Richards Press in 1951. This new Tartarus Edition contains an introduction by Stewart Lee.  New and unread.

Contains: Far Off Things and Things Near and Far

SYNOPSIS: “In 1915 Machen was working for the London Evening News when the paper’s acting editor, Alfred Turner, commissioned thirty-five instalments of the ‘Confessions of a Literary Man’. These were collected as Far Off Things by the publisher Martin Secker in 1922, and were enough of a success to cause Secker to commission a second memoir from Machen, Things Near and Far. These two wonderful books of reminiscence were first collected as The Autobiography of Arthur Machen by the Richards Press in 1951.”
