Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1874. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Small 8vo - 302 pp. One half pebble grain red morocco over dark marbled boards with marbled endpapers. Binding by Bolton of Knightsbridge, with their label affixed to the rear paste-down. Rubbing to the joints, edges and corners but all hinges remaining strong. Some moderate foxing to the endpages, both front and rear. The text-block remains largely un-blemished - very minor spotting indeed. A collection of supernatural stories presented by Tauchnitz in their "Collection Of British Authors" series and, oddly, never before published in England. The stories contained within are: A Night On The Borders Of The Black Forest, The Story of Salome, In The Confessional, The Tragedy In The Palazzo Bordello, The Four-Fifteen Express, Sister Johanna's Story, All-Saints' Eve. This copy also contains a signed un-dated inscription, inserted before the title page, containing a verse passage from her break-through novel, Barbara's History (1864). Amelia Edwards was a highly acclaimed novelist, poet, Egyptologist and journalist. This volume is extremely rare and, with the signed inscription, make it one of a kind.
