Best Ghost Stories
Including J Sheridan Le Fanu & M R James, in a terrific dustwrapper by Margaret Wolpe
First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 360pp.
A great collection of ghost stories selected by Anne Ridler, a poet and editor at Faber, including tales by J Sheridan Le Fanu, Wilkie Collins, M R James, Saki, Algernon Blackwood and Elizabeth Bowen and more. The super dustwapper is by Margaret Wolpe who, along with her husband Berthold, design wrappers for Faber for 35 years.
The book is in very good condition, with some age-toning to the pages and a neat previous owner's inscription to the ffep. The dustwrapper has a small area of loss at the head of the spine but is otherwise in good order.
