First Edition, First Printing stated.

Structurally sound and tightly bound, and showing minimal wear, remains a clean, sturdy, presentable copy in a well-worn, chipped, but intact DJ. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 283pp. Introduction by the Editor. Hardback with DJ. Dreams are the common property of mankind, experienced by everyone, but written about by only a few. Herewith for the first time presented, an anthology of the most startling dream experiences in fiction, a collection that begins with a most interesting and informative selection of fifteen texts from ancient China. Essentially, an anthology of literary works centered around the subjects of dreams and dreaming. Among the authors represented are Edgar Allan Poe, H.G. Wells, Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges, Ambrose Bierce, Apuleius, Ts'ao Hsueh-ch'in, Lieh Tzu and Su Shih. The book concludes with an essay by Bernard Groethuysen titled "The Epistemology of the Dream." From the terror of Gautier's The Dead Lemon, and Poe's A Tale of the Ragged Mountains to the science-fiction fantasy of Henry Kuttner and C. L. Moore's A Wild Surmise, the spiraling fears of Nabokov's The Visit to the Museum, and the paradisiacal Gardens of Alamut of Marco Polo, every reader is sure to discover again the secret life ot the dream state.
