CECILIA DE NOEL ..
London and New York: Macmillan and Co., 1891.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-216 [217-224: ads], original decorated two-part pistachio green and teal-blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in blue-green and gold. First U.S. edition. A novella-length ghost story exploring the different reactions of the guests of a weekend house party to the sight of a despairing ghost. "... an exceptional ghost novel for the period." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 148. "A neat and touching story, written with obvious sincerity and unusual delicacy." - Barron, Horror Literature 2-26. "Hawker, a forgotten Scottish writer, was known during the Victorian period as a writer of considerable refinement and intelligence. CECILIA DE NOEL, her popular spook novel, was highly regarded in its day, but is now extremely rare." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-91. Bleiler (1978), p. 70. Reginald 05016. NCBEL III 1051. Mild rubbing to edges of cloth, just a bit of soiling to cloth, mild tanning to front endpapers, spine panel a bit dust-soiled, a very good copy. An attractive copy. (#151837)
