The Riddle and Other Stories

Walter de la Mare

The Riddle and Other Stories by Walter de la Mare, Selwyn & Blount, London, 1923, 303 pages, first edition. Number 229 of 300 copies printed. Signed by the author on the limitation page. Collects such horror classics as The Almond Tree, Seaton's Aunt, Miss Duven, Out of the Deep and 11 others. Book is in pretty decent condition for its age. Binding is square and tight. Lettering fresh. Pages are creamy white; front and rear end-papers a little browned as if something were stored there. Little or no foxing. Only defect is the mottled appearance of the front and back covers—appears to have been manufactured this way, or, at least, I can't think of any other way to explain it. Comes with a mylar book protector.
