"By the early sixteenth century the loosely knit kingdom of Georgia had disintegrated from the strong monarchy of the middle ages to a number of small states and principalities.

    London: Martin Secker. Green cloth lettered in black. pp (319), (1, ad). Variant without inserted 16 pp 1916 catalogue at rear. Light spotting to rear cover but not glaring; soft bumps to outer corners of covers; very light tanning to inner margin of title and facing page; yellowing to page edges; in all, a VG clean, tight and unworn jacketless copy. Five page Introduction by Cournos. Sologub was a Russian Symbolist poet, novelist, playwright and essayist, and the first writer to introduce the morbid, pessimistic elements characteristic of European fin de siècle literature and philosophy into Russian prose. The first novel "of a monumental weird trilogy, THE CREATED LEGEND (1914), a deeply flawed work that is nonetheless one of the most ambitious, bizarre, and fascinating achievements of fantastic literature. Whereas THE LITTLE DEMON devastatingly condemned the poshlost' of this world, THE CREATED LEGEND triumphantly asserts the transforming power of art, embodied in the Satanist mage-poet Trirodov (the author's thinly disguised surrogate). A extraordinary mélange of occult romance and political melodrama, Sadean horror show, and spiritual quest, this novel anticipates magic realism by two generations, audaciously melding reality and fantasy in highly colored prose. As an exercise in wish fulfillment, THE CREATED LEGEND ranks with Baron Corvo's HADRIAN VII, in its sheer outrageousness and improbability is often transformed into a vision of compelling power by Sologub's literary genius."- The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 394. Reginald 38077. The Russian original of this novel translates as DROPS OF BLOOD. The other two volumes in the trilogy were not published in English until 1979. Scarce, and important.
