Published by Hutchinson & Co., London; 1896. 8vo. First Edition. Condition: Good

This first edition is a rare collection of ghost stories, which was purposefully written to resemble acounts of “true hauntings”. Indeed, there has been at least one instance of a reviewer mistakenly believing they were true accounts. The tales were forgotten until the 1970s, when some of them started to appear in modern anthologies.

The book is bound in original decorated green and red cloth boards, whish are still in smart condition with just some rubbing and creasing to the spine and bumping to the extremities. Inside, all plates are present and pages are clean and bright and in good condition, with just some minor toning to pages. The inner gutter is weak with some shaking and the hinges are starting.

Overall this is a good, collectible example of this very rare first edition.
