Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------ILLUSION IN JAVA by Gene Fowler, Introduction by Robert Sillman Hillyer. Magic tricks done with coffee............. This is a strange and exotic novel of the tropics!! Ralph Ellison wrote in "Javanese Folklore" (December 1939), a review of Gene Fowler's novel Illusion in Java. Ellison criticizes the author's "escapis[m]: "It is difficult to believe that almost forty million people living under the colonial rule of the Dutch find their lives as lyrical as does Fowler. . . Folklore, even those [sic] most charming, reveals a contradictory, bitter-sweet quality when something is known of the conditions that give it birth" This is the hardcover stated World First Edition from July 1947. Other than some wear and tear to the dj, the book is in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
