London, Review of Reviews, n.d. [1896]. First Thus. Paperback. A good copy. Very rare. Of bibliographic interest. Contains: A Descent into the Maelstrom, The History of a Mesmerised Corpse, The Black Cat, Tortures of the Inquisition, William Wilson: The Story of a Double, The Premature Burial, and The Domain of Arnheim. 'The History of a Mesmerised Corpse' is an alternative title for 'The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar'. The story has also been called 'Startling Effects of Mesmerism on a Dying Man' and simply 'Mesmerism'. The present edition seems to be the only edition carrying this particular title. Similarly, 'Tortures of the Inquistion' is an alternative title for 'The Pit and the Pendulum'. Again, we can find no other reference to the tale under the title 'Tortures of the Inquisition'. 'William Wilson' we can find no other edition with the story subtitled. The present edition offers an interesting bibliographic entry, not just given the alternative titles but also the particular selection of tales is peculiar to this particular issue. The book is #37 in W.T. Stead's Penny Popular Novels, an important series in its own right. Part of the 'Masterpiece Library'. Condition: some insect damage to top and bottom of upper wrapper, some soiling and foxing, foreedge scuffed, internally neat. No copies on COPAC, one on WorldCat [8156, Hyraxia Books].
