Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-2] 3-325 [326: blank] [note: first leaf is a blank], twenty inserted plates with illustrations by J. Greville Wilmot, original two-part white and purple cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. 325-page anonymously edited anthology with thirty stories by Octave Thanet, Mary E. Wilkins [Freeman], Charles King, George Ade, Irving Batcheller, Opie Read, Elia W. Peattie, Albert Bigelow Paine and others. Several of the stories are supernatural, including "The Princess Yepti" by Opie Read (about a mummy), "The Night of a Thousand Years" by Irving Bacheller (dreams and insanity), and "The Rose of Hell" by Mrs. General George E. Pickett (a strange flower and insanity). The artwork is oddly amateurish, with a shaky grasp of perspective; or maybe not so odd, given the obscurity of the publisher. Also noted with the imprint of Jamieson-Higgins Co. of Chicago. According to PW, two 5000-copy press runs were required to meet the public demand for the book. BAL 6363 (Freeman). Wright (III) 4931. White spine a bit dusty, else a bright, clean, very good copy. (#118041). N° de réf. du libraire 118041
