[Summers, Montague, ed.] London: Victor Gollancz, 1931. 8vo. 622pp. Original cloth. Very light foxing on pages. Small holes in front endsheet. Slight ding to top back board, not effecting cloth. Otherwise very good copy.

Highly collectible collection of supernatural short stories. Includes tales from Edith Nesbit (writing as "Evelyn Nesbit", who is also a totally different person FYI), Vernon Lee (see my Instagram post about this siren), Charles Dickens, and noted anthropophagist W.B. Seabrook. And of course the stories were compiled by Montague Summers, a defrocked priest, first to translate the "Malleus Maleficarum" into English, and all around "throwback to the Middle Ages" to quote The Times.
