Two or three faint splotches to fore-edge of text block. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Black-and-white illustrations including maps. Notes and Index. "[The book] brings equal parts scholarship and literary detection to its unmasking of the fabulous (from 'fable') lives and fortunes of Defoe's predecessors and followers. From Father Hennepin and Admiral de Fonte's imaginary maps stimulating hopes of a Northwest Passage, to Coreal's fictitious 'noble savage' to Foul Weather Jack Byron's giant Patagonians, travel hoaxers frequently left their counterfeit stamp on the topography, economics, science and literature of successive generations."

290 pp. Light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Faint yellowing and some scuffing to edges of text block. Internally unmarked. "A thoroughlly subversive book. Professor Adams has a wide-ranging energetic, destructive mind, and rarest of all in an American academic, an urbane and lucid prose style. Surface and Symbol is, in fact, a work of rigorously scholarly inquiry rather than of criticism, but it provides material that will be indispensable for future critics of Ulysses." -- Bernard Bergonzi, The Spectator
