Figures of Earth

A fantasy novel from the author of Jurgen, much enhanced by 12 outstanding illustrations rendered in photogravures onto debossed Japanese vellum. Cabell became an overnight sensation with Jurgen and Pape, who had previously illustrated fairy tales, became an equal sensation with his illustrations for the same banned book. Figures of the Earth, A Comedy of Appearances, is the lead story in the Manuel saga. This link for educational purpose only. Please remove file from your computer after familiarization.

A "comedy of appearances" -- the story of Manuel of the High Head who, by dint of doing the expected thing, rose from herding the miller's pigs to become the Count of Poictesme. His adventures are recounted with the impudent whimsicality and superb artistry which are Mr. Cabell's special distinction.
