Jacobs, W.W. The Lady of The Barge.
London: Harpers, 1902.
First edition. 8vo. Publisher’s terracotta cloth titled and decorated in black and gilt to spine and front board. Bumping to spine ends, some marking to the cloth, minor edgewear, a very good, solid copy. Internally clean, illustrated throughout by Maurice Greffenhagen. Pencil ownership to front flyleaf. Contains “The Well”, which is perfectly splendid story on its own, but this title is primarily known for being the first publication of the epic “The Monkey’s Paw”, the chilling tale that nailed Jacobs into the annals of the weird. Rare.
