Internally clean with a couple of small spots to edge of text block, a little browning to endpapers, no inscriptions, minor shelfwear, cloth lightly handled; a very good copy indeed. Strange and horrible tales, mostly with an eerie nature, although two are ingenious enough to involve the great detective; there is a cameo appearance from Sherlock Holmes, p.187, with deductions in 'The Lost Special'.
