THE JOLLY CORNER. London: Terra Nova Editions, 1979. Octavo, illustrations by Peter Milton, buckram. First illustrated edition. One of James's most notable ghost stories, "The Jolly Corner," written in 1905, "is a doppelganger story thematically connected to his unfinished timeslip novel, THE SENSE OF THE PAST (1917)." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 4-80. This illustrated edition is often erronously termed the first separate edition. In fact, the story, first published in the ENGLISH REVIEW in December 1908 and first published in book form in 1909 in volume 17 of THE NOVELS AND TALES OF HENRY JAMES, first appeared as a separate book in February 1919 as a volume in Martin Secker's THE UNIFORM TALES OF HENRY JAMES. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 910n. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature, p. 250. See BAL 10793. See Edel and Laurence A74a. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#72864).
