The Violet Apple & The Witch
by David Lindsay
Title: The Violet Apple and The Witch
Date of issue: 1976
Cover: Blue cloth, yellow lettering. Dustjacket.
Page count: 395
Additional material: Introduction by Colin Wilson • Foreword to The Violet Apple by J B Pick • Foreword to The Witch by J B Pick
Edition notes: First US edition. Publication of The Witch ends at chapter 19, followed by a brief note from J B Pick summarising the remaining "collection of unnumbered pages". There are a few textual errors in The Violet Apple portion: in a couple of places, pages have been set in the wrong order (though the page numbers don't indicate this), and there is a missing portion of text, probably the equivalent of a page of Lindsay's typescript, which should be on page 221.
Thanks to Lawrence Cassidy for the cover image.
