FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. 172, with 7 full page illustrations by Gilbert James. Publisher's orange cloth, with titles printed in black. Internally clean and bright. Sharp and tight, essentially a fine copy with some spotting to the page edges and a trifle of bumping and shelfwear. In a very sharp, clean example of the scarce dustwrapper, one significant corner of loss to the upper right front panel, repaired at some point, otherwise minor wear and chipping to the extremities and some pale pink staining and discolouration to the outer edge of the rear panel. Strong, handsome and very seldom seen. Ostensibly a children's book from this distinguished and highly influential writer of chilling stories of the supernatural, this is the collection of stories that James would have read aloud in his rooms to some of his charges at Eton School, including fledgling wordsmiths George Orwell and Ian Fleming. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [172]. Oxford Companion to English Literature, page 503-4. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 42860
