“The Emerald Princess, originally published in 1928 as La Princesse émeraude, is one of the more whimsical productions of a rather self-indulgent period of Félicien Champsaur’s career, deliberately harking back to the stylistic extravagances of the Decadent Movement. In this attempt by the author to go beyond anything he had done before, in producing a kind of ultimate femme fatale, Djila, the snake-woman, was created. An engagingly bizarre fantasy, full of lurid symbolism, The Emerald Princess is combined in this volume with five other stories, all presented in English for the first time in exquisite translations.” This is a print-on-demand title. #60304
