Here’s Fable of Venice – Corto Maltese with Art/ text by the great artist Hugo Pratt. It’s the First English Edition published by N(antier) B(eall) M(inoustchine) in 1990.

Another fantastic Corto Maltese adventure volume set in Venice. Corto Maltese searches for a legendary emerald but mysticism, the occult, Freemasonry and even the first stirrings of fascism sets him for many a riddle.

A marvellous introduction to this adventure (with period photographs) by Hugo Pratt complements this volume.

This adventure volume is divided into 4 chapters:
– THE LODGE OF HERMES
– THE BARON CORVO ENIGMA
– THE STAIRWAY OF ENCOUNTERS &
– THE REVELATIONS OF SAINT MARK.

Usual brilliant script & stunning artwork by Hugo Pratt.

Item is in excellent (unread) condition. Clean/ white & unmarked pages. No tears & tight binding. Minor yellowing just around spine back cover. A very fine copy indeed.

76 pages – illustrated card (soft) covers – Black & White – 8 ½ x 11 inches (22cm x 28cm).
