The Locksmith’s Dream (1923 edition)

If you lived in the first half of the twentieth century, and you wanted to find a way into the Mansus, you probably owned a copy of this book. It began life as a catalogue of unusual parallels in the dreams of artisans, but by the time of Volume 2 (‘Portions and Proportions’) it amounted to a survey of the Mansus’ outer layers. Consequently, the Long suppressed it, and I’m taking a bit of a chance by sharing this picture.

I found it in a bookshop in Camden Lock Market. Galmier actually lived in Camden for a couple of years, after the court case, tutoring undergraduates in Italian and writing furious letters to the local paper. I don’t know where she went after that. But this edition was published in 1923: the year she passed the Spider’s Door.
