The Evil Guest.
London: Downey and Co., [1895]. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp. 238; 6 [advertisements]. Handsomely bound in publisher's bottle green cloth, lavishly gilded and decorated to spine and boards. Front board features a repeated bat design in stamped in black to background, with wrought metal household features stamped in gilt in foreground, black endpapers. Cloth boards in excellent condition with majority of generous decoration sharp, some loss of detail to parts (particularly gilt), spine is exceptionally well-preserved excepting pushed endcaps, which are a little frayed. All corners bumped, a little edgeworn, gilt top edge dulled, fore edge and tail edge deckled. Mostly clean throughout with some marginal spotting in places, pencil ownership to front flyleaf. Illustrated with wonderfully Gothic scenes throughout by Brinsley Le Fanu. A handsome copy of this scarce supernatural tale, produced by the leading ghost-story writer of the nineteenth century.
