MetadataShow full item record
This is, as the verso of the title-page says, a collection of verse, fables, satirical essays and stories by Ambrose Bierce, selected from The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce (Neale, twelve volumes, 1909-1912). The book is designed as a companion volume to Bierce's own Devil's Dictionary. Selections from Fantastic Fables occur on 111 through 125. Aesopus Emendatus is on 127-28. Bierce is always fun! The cover illustration by Heinrich Kley of two naked women, one green and one orange, hoisting a dressed man is worthy of Bierce!
