DREADS AND DROLLS.

London: Martin Secker, 1926. First Edition. Crown octavo; original green cloth with a double border in blind on front and rear panel, spine lettered in gilt, [221] pp. The trade hardcover edition, issued in November 1926, about a month after the signed & limited edition. Light foxing to text, tiny chip at base of half-title leaf, endpapers browned, bookplate on front paste-down (a generic, older, unsigned "Ex Libris", which appears to be covering an older label which I can see is a price label of 10' 6, which was the publisher's price). Corners knocked, cloth a bit bubbled. A very good, sound copy. Goldstone & Sweetser 34b. Item #311836

¶ Twenty-nine articles reprinted from London's The Graphic. Taken mostly from real life, each article, by its capacity for inspiring terror or causing amused wonder, qualifies as the 'Dread' or 'Droll' of Arthur Machen's general heading.
