Éditeur : Macmillan and Co., Limited, London

Date d'édition : 1910

Reliure : Hardcover

Edition : 1st Edition

Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iv] v-vii [viii] ix-xxvii [xxviii] xxix [xxx] [1-2] 3-187 [188: blank] [189-192: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank], inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of Tatham), original blue cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed. First edition. Collection of seventeen short supernatural tales. Most have a religious theme, without being pietistic, and most have the dreamy mood of a fable. Several build up a weird atmosphere quite effectively and have nice touches of horror. A somewhat under-appreciated collection, though not to everyone's taste -- and certainly scarce. The author was a friend of M. R. James and a classmate, at Eton and Cambridge, of A. C. Benson, who supplies a biographical memoir. This collection was published posthumously from typed manuscripts found among the author's papers after he died from a hiking accident in the Swiss Alps. A similar accident is the setting for the title story. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 469. Reginald 13996. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Christmas gift inscription dated 1910 on front free endpaper. Cloth rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, endpapers foxed, a very good copy. Uncommon. (#114143). N° de réf. du libraire 114143
