First edition. Inscribed by Bracewell to the dedication page to notable and prolific Victorian novelist and poet Thomas Henry Hall Caine: “To T. H. Hall Caine Esq, with the author’s appreciation and esteem. W. Hartley Bracewell. May 14. 1904”. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher’s patterned dark green cloth, lettered in gilt, the spine is slightly faded, there is some mottling or minor water damage to the edges of the front and rear boards, also minor bumping rubbing and small tears to the cloth. The text block is slightly foxed, toned and dusty. A collection of short stories, quite entertainingly written, some criminous and some with minor ghostly activity. A distinctly uncommon title from a short-lived minor publisher with a nice association.
