“Text in German and English. This groundbreaking and hugely influential German magazine had a run of 51 issues from January 1919 until November 1921. Founded four years before the American magazine ‘Weird Tales’ was initiated in March 1923, ‘Der Orchideengarten’ is considered to be the world’s first fantasy magazine.
The wonderful Helen Grant (’The Sea Change & Other Stories’) has congenially translated the surreal texts which are uniquely bound into the volume making it possible to read both the German original and the English translation.” A most interesting artifact and quite lovely as well. For the Zagava completist, for fans of ‘Weird Tales’ for those with an interest in fantastic literature and art. Contributors include Karl Hans Strobl, Max Rohrer, Victor Hugo and others. Neat! #60566
