The Phantom 'Rickshaw and other Eerie tales [Indian Railway Library Series]

Allahabad: A.H. Wheeler and Co., London: Sampson Low Marston and Company [1890]. Short stories. A 'Wheeler' pamphlet published in India at 1 Rupee or in the UK at 1 shilling. Third edition overall; this copy nicely preserved in the original illustrated pale green wraps. Some expected dustiness and handling, spine rolled with a few creases and tears, browned to extremities. A most presentable and usable example of a fragile 'shilling' paperback. 'The Phantom Rickshaw' story is a classic of 'the psychopathic state' and this tale, along with 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes' (originally titled 'The Village of the Dead'), have been likened in manner to the weird tales of Edgar Allan Poe, successfully re-created in a Simla, rather than Gothic setting. Item #42975
