London, Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1832. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good set. Three volumes, complete. A collection of 13 short tales, many more like novellas. A number of the tales are set way back in history, more than 500 years before the publication. A little known collection, with more than a touch of the gothic to it in parts and certainly supernatural elements. "Scarcely had the squire quitted his place by the side of his master, when the moon, hitherto obscured behind dark clouds, burst forth in all her brilliancy, and discovered to the astonished eyes of our knight of Flanders a living female figure clothed in black standing immediately before him." - that from The Curse of the Black Lady. Tales include The Legends of the Wolf's Brun, A Year of Joy (turns out not to be so easy), The Lady of the Cold Kisses (a supernatural tale) and, The Forfeit Hand. Bound in later full calf, spines and edges rubbed but nice overall. Collector's plate to the front pastedowns, marbled endpapers, and a few marks here and there. A lovely set. [11009, Hyraxia Books].
