285 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Last brought together in 1935 and long out of print, today these stories are hard to come by. They represent the author's best work in this genre and many will welcome their reappearance. What are g hosts for if not to walk again? The ghosts in this book are no ordinary spectres with clanking chains, but creatures of flesh and blood archored to the past. From the past they come, bewildered and unhappy, and to the past they must retur n u n t i l r ecalled yet once again by a summons from the world of mortal men." Previous owner's name on front pastedown, minor browning to pages, book slightly cocked, one small corner bump, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket ha s l ig ht t o m od erate edge wear/wrinkling, a few small chips and tears, moderate browning, light rubbing/soiling and small light stain on rear panel. Very Good/Good
