[BKARTS] The Age of the Storytellers


PLEASE RESPOND TO  <mailto:orders@xxxxxxxxxxxx> orders@xxxxxxxxxxxx


The Age of the Storytellers has just arrived at Oak Knoll!
The Age of the Storytellers is the first reference guide to consider in
detail the magazines from the golden age of storytelling. The years from
1880 to 1950 saw the creation of many famous 
fictional characters from Sherlock Holmes to Winnie The Pooh; by authors
such as Robert Louis 
Stevenson, H.G. Wells and Rudyard Kipling. It was a time that coincided with
the glory of the popular monthly illustrated magazine, typified by The
Strand, which set the standard for popular fiction.
This exciting title provides coverage of 144 titles, charting their
contribution to and influence upon 
popular literature. There are illustrations reproducing covers and features
from every magazine, with 72 color images. This book also considers the
collecting significance of these titles and will be of importance to
collectors and bookdealers as well as literary researchers and bibliophiles.
The author, Mike Ashley, has spent over forty years researching popular
literature in all its forms. He has published over seventy books including
The Biography of Algernon Blackwood, Starlight Man, Studies of the
Development of the Science-Fiction Magazine, The Time Machines and
Transformations, and the award-winning Mammoth Encyclopedia of Modern Crime
2005, Hardcover, 9.5 x 7.5 inches, 320 pages with 72 color and 60 b/w
ISBN 158456170X, Book No. 089477, Price: $95.00
