Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7  9-287 [288: blank], original purple patterned boards, printed labels affixed to front and spine panels, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. A mixed collection of short fiction that includes "Helm Hall," a supernatural tale, and "Mrs. Barber's Christmas," a religious fantasy. "While he never produced a genre collection, several of Armstrong's short story collections include ghost and fantasy tales. The author's particular talent is the ability to carefully sustain the possibility of either supernatural or psychological explanations of events through subtle ambiguity. This quality, coupled with a high degree of imagination, ensures that Armstrong's tales make an original contribution to the English supernatural genre and his work may appeal to modern readers seeking something a little different from the traditional ghost story." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 37. "Well regarded during the 1930's for finely crafted traditional novels and short stories. Now undeservedly forgotten." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, p. 11.
