(#128517) "WISIONS": A SELECTION OF STORIES. L. Vero Atkinson.

"WISIONS": A SELECTION OF STORIES. London: Henry J. Drane, Limited, n.d. [1909]. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-173 [174-176: ads], original red bevel-edged cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. Collects four short stories ("'Orace," "The Power of the Eye," "Sambo's Ghost," "Wisions") all told in working-class dialect, usually in the setting of a pub, in one case involving some nautical matter, in most cases invoking the supernatural for comic effect. A better than the average Drane book. Mild foxing on edges of text block and first and last few leaves, cloth a bit dust-soiled, particularly on spine panel, otherwise a very good copy of a rare book. COPAC reports 3 copies; none listed on OCLC. (#128517).

Price: $350.00
