New issue of LE VISAGE VERT
A quick post to call attention to the recent publication of issue 20 (June 2012) of Le Visage Vert. As usual it is a sumptuous production, and includes an envelope containing four colored plates, with images on each side, complimenting the black-and-white reproductions in the issue itself. Contents include three tales by Émile Verhaeren and an article on him; a tale by Jacob Elias Poritzky and an article on him by Michel Meurger; an essay "On Ghosts" by Mary Shelley; stories by Catelle Mendès and Jane Pentzer Myers and Jerome K. Jerome. This is followed by a second installment of "Le Gorille Voleur de Femmes" by François Ducos; a translation of "The Pongos: A Letter from Southern Africa" by James Hogg; and the usual bio-bibliographies of the contributors. A delightful issue.
