The First UK Printing published by Richards (London) in 1935. The BOOK is in Near Fine condition. Original publisher's orange ribbed cloth titled in black to the spine and front board with just light sunning to the spine and edges. Mild pushing at the spine ends with light toning to the text block and page edges. A neat previous owner's penned name to the upper front pastedown (which is obscured by the wrapper front flap). The WRAPPER is complete and is in near Fine condition. Very light edge-wear with just a little rubbing and loss at the upper spine end. Very light age related markings. The pictorial wrapper design looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The final collection of short stories to be issued in Shiel's lifetime. A mixed collection of eleven short stories in a frame narrative, several of which are fantasy and science fiction. Collectible.
