Very rare book from the well noted early 20th century French science fiction and horror writer, Maurice Renard, "The Snake of Luvercy," in a first American edition, first printing from 1930. In very good condition. Renard has been referred to as the H.G. Wells of France, writing at the same time as Wells. The boards and binding are solid and tight save for some shelf-wear; please see pictures. The hand-cut pages are crisp and clean. Previous owner's signature on the first blank page. A wonderful example of French science fiction writing from a well noted French Sci Fi and horror author of the early 20th century in a first edition, first printing copy.
