The Petty Demon

The Petty Demon by Fyodor Sologub. 1962 Random House, first American edition (c/r 1907). Cover by Milton Glaser. Price on front jacket flap crossed out in pen, jacket and book in very good condition. Turns out a story of a sadistic schoolteacher in the hands of a Russian Symbolist can end up pretty grim!

"All were attired in festive fashion and looked at each other with good humor, and it seemed that in this town people lived peacefully and amiably. And even happily. But all this was only an appearance."
