First edition. Collects nineteen stories which appeared earlier in THE HILL OF TROUBLE (1903) and THE ISLES OF SUNSET (1904). "Much closer to M. R. James than to either brother ... because of the academic, antiquarian tone of the stories. The most notable are collected [in these two collections]." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 106. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-12. Bleiler (1978), p. 20.
