Notes Just about fine book (red cloth binding, only a touch of shelfwear to spine ends, but otherwise straight, clean, very tight and has no previous owner writing in it) in a just about fine dustjacket (price intact, clean, bright, unfaded, with just a couple of tiny edge nicks). The original--and scarce-- 'Recommended by the Book Society' yellow paper band is present and in excellent condition. A new volume of haunting stories including: The Quincunx, The Princess, The Cartouche, The Guardian, The Face, An Anniversary, Odd Shop, The Stranger, Neighbours, Bad Company, Music, The Picture, and A Beginning.
