551 pp.


This edition limited to 350 numbered copies.” 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' was the debut novel by the controversial German author Hanns Heinz Ewers (1871-1943) and the first of the so called 'Frank Braun' trilogy which included 'Alraune' (1911) and 'Vampire' (1921). The novel concerns the creation and implosion of a religious cult. Readers familiar with Ewers' other works will not be surprised to learn that obsession, ritual and blood play significant parts in the narrative. The Side Real volume is largely a reprint of the 1927 John Day edition (complete with the Mahlon Blaine artwork), which was closely overseen "line by line" by Ewers himself. However that publication had a number of passages removed, partly over issues relating to its sexual content. These have been restored to the Side Real edition, courtesy of Joe E. Bandel, thus making this edition the most complete version in English.” #65198
