REID, Forrest

Following Darkness

London: Edward Arnold, 1912

8vo, pp. 320. Original brown boards, lettered in black to front panel and spine. Lower edge uncut.

First edition.

A coming-of-age novel from an Ulster novelist at the beginning of the twentieth century is always going to invite comparisons with Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and comparisons are always made, but Reid is more than able to stand on his own two feet, not only because of the calibre of his writing, but because of the homosexual sensibility which permeates his work, never explicit but always there. This book is no exception. Reid was the bridge between the ornate crypticism of the Uranians and the beginning of the genre we now know as Gay Lit. He's both important and scarce -- which is why this less than beautiful copy is offered.

[pseud. ABBOTT, Edwin A.] SQUARE, A.

Flatland: A Romance Of Many Dimensions

London: Seeley & Co., 1884

8vo, pp. 100. Original printed stiff paper wrappers. Leading edge uncut.

First edition.

One of literature's very few geometric Victorian social satires. Set in a two-dimensional world, A. Square visits the one-dimensional community of Lineland, where he is dismissed as a lunatic, and is then visited by a sphere from Spaceland. Convinced of the existence of a third dimension, Square starts to entertain the possibility of a fourth. And a fifth...

All of which made this text something of a sensation when Einstein published his general theory of relativity in 1915, and Flatland was taken up as a text which foreshadowed major scientific findings. Since then, it has been cited by scientists as eminent as Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking, inspired films and books, and - of course - has been name-checked in an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

This, the first edition, is now very scarce.
