Lovely condition. This is very close to 'as new' if not 'as new'

Hesperus Press specialise in publishing out of print or less famous works of great writers.

Due to the cover folding in (like a dust jacket does on a hardback), this does not feel like a standard soft cover edition. It is a beautiful softcover quality paperback edition.

About the book
A multi-authored tale of the supernatural, The Haunted House is a testament to Charles Dickens’ comic touch. ‘Conducted’ by Dickens and featuring various members of the London literati, including Elizabeth Gaskell and Wilkie Collins, The Haunted House takes on the genre of ghostly stories – but leaves the reader with something very much more unusual.

When the narrator sees a deserted house from his railway carriage, he cannot resist the challenge of taking up residence in a place no one else will inhabit. Local legend has terrified the nearby villagers, and they, in turn, convince his servants to abandon ship. Undaunted, he and his sister invite a group of friends to join them. Having shared out the household tasks, the guests are then commissioned to rout out the supernatural from their respective bedrooms. On Twelfth Night they meet to share their ghostly tales. The result is a feast of lively and bizarre story-telling, uniting the finest in Victorian literary talent.
