E[dward] F[rederick] Benson

This is a collection of 'spook' stories by E.F. Benson (1867-1940), all 12 of which were first published in Hutchinson's Magazine in 1922 and 1923. This enabled the publisher to sell them twice: first in a monthly story magazine and then in a bound volume of collected stories. The illustration used on the jacket first appeared in the story The Horror-Horn in volume 7, issue 39, in September 1922 (page 243). Blampied illustrated 18 'spook' stories by Benson in Hutchinson's Magazine between 1922 and 1925.

This book was found since my bibliography, published in 2010.
