Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xvi 1-270 [271: printer's imprint] [272: blank], original decorated blue cloth, front panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. Posthumous collection of short fiction that includes the title story, one of the most successful humorous ghost stories.

''one of the most interesting stylists in British ghostly fiction, Middleton is rich and exuberant in his more traditional ghost stories (especially the humorous ones), lean and concise in his more original psychological tales. He was a sad, neglected figure, and is still not well known. He was also a tragic figure: he killed himself at the age of 29'' (Tymn ed. Horror Literature 3-170).
