Hauntings Tales of the Supernatural Henry Mazzeo Ed Gorey - Book Club 1968 HC SEE PICS

Condition Details: Hardcover with DJ in Good condition. DJ wrapped in plastic. Some edge wear. Pages clean and straight, binding tight. See pics.



Collection of 17 tales of the supernatural. These are all in the best tradition of the supernatural story -- authentically eerie, but more about the human spirit than about spooks and specters. Well-known authors are presented here in what, for them, is an unusual manner: a rich vein of British and American imaginative fiction. Beautifully illustrated with the macabre art of Edward Gorey on both front & back Dust Jacket; other of his illustrations open each story inside, + one on full title page.
