Caldecott (Sir Andrew) Not Exactly Ghosts


London, Edward Arnold, 1947.

First edition. 8vo. Original cloth-backed boards. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 7s6d.

The first of two collections of ghost stories by retired civil servant Caldecott, distilling his lifelong fascination with the supernatural into simple yet remarkably disturbing stories, in a similar vein to publisher stable-mate M.R. James. The mundane becomes horrific, the everyday is unnerving…and the commonplace is terrifying.
