København: Gyldendal (1904). 379pp. The only overtly gay novel written by the highly regarded Danish writer, a leading European impressionist writer of the period. Bang was openly gay, a fact which contributed to his isolation in the cultural life of Denmark and made him the victim of smear campaigns. The book was adapted to the screen in 1902 and again in 1924, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer. Very good in contemporary marbled boards. Quite rare.
