Collects the twelve Flaxman Low psychic detective ghost stories first published in Pearson's Magazine in 1898 and 1899. New 12-page introduction by editor Jack Adrian. The first book edition of these stories, Ghosts: Being the Experiences of Flaxman Low (1899), is rare and only six of the stories were collected in the rather shoddy wartime 1916 reprint edition. ''Probably the first important adventures of an occult detective, if Le Fanu's Dr. Hesselius is momentarily overlooked.'' - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 799. 500 copies printed.
