The Sinking Spell. Together with: Holiday Magazine, May 1964.

Gorey, Edward (illus.)

NY: Ivan Obolensky, Inc., 1964. 12mo. (32)pp. First edition. Demonstrating his mastery of the imaginitive leap, Gorey presents a story about "something way up high" that gradually descends through an old family home, to the point where "it's gone beneath the cellar floor. We shall not see it any more" - despite never having seen it at all. Fine in printed wrappers. Together with a copy of the May 1964 issue of Holiday, in which the illustrations and text appear. Some soiling and faint foxing to covers, mild rubs to edges, else very good. Item #31959

(Toledano A17a).
