James Publishing Details: Published by Edward Arnold, London, 1919. 1st edition in original cloth with spider web design to upper cover, replicated in the original dustwrapper. First state, first impression. Condition: The book is in fine condition. Very trivial rubbing with very minor foxing / page markings. The dustwrapper has slight loss to the spine ends and rear panel as per the photos. It is unrestored in its original state. Context: A very superior copy of M.R. James' third collection of ghost stories, inc. the vampiric "An Episode Of Cathedral History", along with "The Story Of An Appearance and a Disappearance", which features an oustanding 'Punch & Judy' dream-sequence, perhaps one of the author's most disturbing tales of supernatural horror. Published one year after the end of the First World War, this collection features James' grisliest and most visceral tales. A superb 'collector's copy' in the true first state.
