Item Description: Dodd, Mead & Company, New York, 1909. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-186, original decorated dark blue-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in white and blind, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First U.S. edition. Collection of short fiction including crime stories and two fantasies; the title story and "The Soul of Nicholas Snyders, or the Miser of Zandam." Jerome K. Jerome (1859-1927) was a well-regarded British humorist whose best-known collection of fantastic fiction, TOLD AFTER SUPPER (1891), satirized the ghostly tale. "The tales in THE PASSING OF THE THIRD FLOOR BACK AND OTHER STORIES (1907) are concerned, in a more serious vein, with drawing moral lessons. In the title piece, based on Jerome's popular play of 1908, a gentle Christlike stranger brings out 'the good side' of everyone he encounters in a shabby London boardinghouse. In 'The Soul of Nicholas Snyders' a miserly old Dutchman exchanges souls with a good-hearted young sea captain. The two undergo immediate personality transformations, but the old man finds himself unable to live with the secret passion he feels for his young servant girl, so eventually he gives the younger man his soul back. This typically Victorian preoccupation -- good and evil warring within the same body -- is, of course, the central theme of Robert Louis Stevenson's THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 237. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-94. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 519. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 297. Bleiler (1948), p. 163. Reginald 07893. Hubin (1994), p. 443. Cloth rubbed at edges, some loss to delicate white enamel lettering, a very good copy. (#157572).
