Notes

First edition, first impression. With Wells's fine contemporary presentation inscription to the half title page, "W. W. Jacobs from H. G. Wells". With the recipient's embroidered silk bookmark laid in. An excellent association: Jacobs (1863-1943) was a close contemporary of Wells, the highest earning writer of his day, and a superb technician. His masterful horror-tale "The Monkey's Paw", his most enduring piece of writing, has been frequently anthologized.
