Description:

Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-256, original black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange. First collected edition. An omnibus volume combining UNCANNY STORIES (1916) and MORE UNCANNY STORIES (1918), which in turn were selected from PEARSON'S NOVEL MAGAZINE. Includes two early stories by noted mystery writer Roy Vickers; also a death premonition story by Theo. Douglas (Mrs. H. D. Everett). Routine commercial work of World War I-era. On the plus side, it should be noted that these are stories seldom encountered elsewhere. "Mostly crude horror." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 690. Bleiler (1978), p. 7. Reginald 05932. Early owner's signature and date on the front paste-down and free endpaper respectively. A few fox marks to page edges, mostly top edge, a bright, nearly fine copy in a good pictorial dust jacket with wear and short tears at edges and some general dust soiling. A nice copy of a scarce book rarely found in jacket. (#148346). Bookseller Inventory #
