Macardle (Dorothy) The Uninvited
New York, Doubleday Doran, 1942.
First US edition (published in the UK as Uneasy Freehold). 8vo. Original blue cloth lettered in gilt. Dust-jacket, priced $2.50.
An attractive first edition of this important ghost story, written by Irish writer and historian Dorothy Macardle. This US edition bears the same title as the subsequent film and stage versions; the 1944 film version was quite groundbreaking in that it did actually treat the supernatural elements in a horror context, something previously shied away from in mainstream cinema.
