First edition. "Psychological ghost stories by Pulitzer Prize winning Virginia regionalist; including oft-reprinted title story, also 'Dare's Gift,' an excellent treatment of ancestral curse theme. Subtle, sophisticated work; moral transgressions expiated in a supernatural context." - Robert Knowlton. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 695.

Gold lettering on spine panel just a bit dull (a flaw endemic to this book and here much less than usual), faint offset from lain in newspaper clipping on pages 170 and 171, a very good copy in a non-pictorial dust jacket (printed in black and red on oatmeal paper stock) with light wear at spine ends and corner tips and 28 mm closed tear at lower edge of front flap fold. A lovely copy. Scarce in jacket. (#172019).
