Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-274 [275-276: blank], eight inserted plates with color illustrations by Bruce Angrave, original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. "Most of the stories are non-supernatural contes cruels; the surreal color plates in the UK edition add interest to the quirky tales." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 4-42. "Among the annals of weird fiction one of the most sought after volumes ..." - Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-55.

A fine copy in very good dust jacket with light wear at edges, small tape mend at upper front corner tip, and just a touch of dust soiling to rear panel. A very nice copy. Unlike the later American edition, which was not illustrated, this UK edition is uncommon and is rarely found in nice condition. (#162034).
