Item #56592 Hortholary. Michael Reynier.


Tartarus Press:
Leyburn: 2015
First edition, Hardcover, Limited, New in dust jacket,
340 pp.

This edition limited to 300 copies. “These four tales from Montagascony span almost the entire life of investigator extraordinary Professor Summanus Horthólary, from a few days before his birth to within two years of his death. They are among the more unusual of his cases: encounters with flying machines, meteors, witchcraft and giants are not entirely mundane experiences, and they are (unlike many of his related adventures) complete: an ending is indisputably an advantage in the telling of a good tale.Taken together, these four cases tell us the story of the man himself, of his progression from an impoverished village in eighteenth-century France to his emergence as an international polymath and, perhaps most intriguing of all, of his life-long battle with the Archbishop of Pessane.” #56592
