SOME NEW GHOST STORIES. London: Simpkin, Marshall, Ltd., 1931. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-vii [viii] 1-104, original pictorial gray boards, front and spine panels printed in black. First edition. "Traditional ghost stories in the 'raw-heads-and-bloody-bones' vein, purportedly fictionalized from local legends. Rather gruesome spectres on the prowl in 'The Leprous Boy of Stockley Castle,' 'Combeton Mill,' and 'The Well.' Short, undeveloped material, lurid horrors told in reportorial style, curiously flat." - Robert Knowlton. Bleiler (1978), p. 212. Eaton catalogue III, p. 538. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Light rubbing to extremities of fragile board binding, some age-darkening, mostly to spine panel, mild soiling, mostly to rear panel, still a tight, internally clean, very good copy. A nice copy of an uncommon book. (#119092).
