Series VIII. Merlin. [series]:   
Scope: Alexander Trocchi edited the review Merlin (published by Alice Jane Lougee) during its brief run of seven numbers from May 1952 to Spring 1955. The magazine was printed by French printers and had for its editorial addresses two Paris bookshops, Librarie Mistral and The English Bookshop, both centers for an expatriate group of writers in the 1950s. At this time Trocchi was also contributing to Nimbus, which was also published in Paris, edited by Tristram Hull and Ivo Jarosy.
