Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xxi [xxii-xxiv]  26-313  [315-316: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], inserted frontispiece (photographic portrait of Middleton), original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Variant binding (probably the first) with spine panel stamped in gold rather than black. Posthumous literary miscellany, compiled and edited by John Gawsworth, that includes a selection of Middleton's short fiction that had not previously been collected in book form. "One of the most interesting stylists in British ghostly fiction, Middleton is rich and exuberant in his more traditional ghost stories (especially the humorous ones), lean and concise in his more original psychological tales. He was a sad, neglected figure, and is still not well known. He was also a tragic figure: he killed himself at the age of 29." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-170.
