Description:
Cassell. First edition of this comprehensive collection of horror short stories, edited by Alexander Laing and published by Cassell in 1937. The book and wrapper are in very good or better condition. The wrapper has wear to the spine ends and corners but is all there. There is a patch of browning to the top of the front panel. It displays the correct price of 8/6 net on the spine. The book has a gentle push to one corner and the spine ends. Overall a nice copy. The editor Laing has put together a who's who of horror short story writers, for what the publishers claim is the first illustrated omniibus of ghost stories. Algernon Blackwood, M.R. James, Arthur Machen, Edgar Allan Poe, Saki, Ambrose Bierce and Edith Wharton all contribute haunted tales. The real star of the show though is illustrator Lynd Ward who contributes 62 illustrations, either full page, vignettes or tail pieces to accompany each story.  . Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1937.

Translated by the author in June, and published in November 1887.  Rendered into English here for the first time by the Scottish poet and novelist Andrew Lang, Aucassin and Nicolette is a French fictional story likely written in the late 12th or early 13th century, of which just one extant manuscript still survives. A classic romantic epic featuring war and forbidden love, it combines prose and verse into what is known as a chantefable - literally translating as a 'sung story'. "He tells a love story",… Read More

Description:
Hodder and Stoughton. London: Hodder and Stoughton Ltd., 1999  8vo., bright red publisher's boards, backstrip lettered in gilt, with navy endpapers, gold ribbon marker, and unclipped pictorial dust jacket (£9.99) with cover illustration by Andy Bridge, and a brooding black and white photograph of the author to the lower flap by The Douglas Brothers; tiny white mark to upper board, mild compression, ribbon marker a touch frayed, otherwise an essentially fine copy, apparently unread.  Much coveted by Le Carre collectors, this the rare promotional edition, signed by the author to the title page. With full number line 1-10 denoting first impression, this version is the true first, appearing before the release of the trade edition, and with the 'juggling' artwork for the jacket which was later replaced by a gold and black version featuring a spiral staircase.  John Le Carre was the pen name for David J. M. Cornwell, who worked for the Secret Service during WWII as… Read More
