A collection of issues of Burns' Fireside Library. Woltman's White Lady is a (scarce) supernatural gothic novel. De La Motte Fouque's tales are each individually paginated, and some have title pages, some not. An additional tale by Fouqué -- The Two Captains -- follows Aslauga's Knight, but is defective, with several pages missing.

Four volumes uniformly bound in late C19th brown-black leather over red and brown marbled boards; raised bands and gilt lettering on spines; maroon marbled endpapers; all edges marbled, green silk bookmarks bound in.

Contains five stories: The Mystery at Number Seven, Caramel Cottage, A Tragedy, In Later Years and The Silent Chimes. This last story, running to over 150 pages, is a novel in its own right. Sadleir [3345]: "A strange obscurity surrounds this seems to have escaped notice that the volume, although listed by Macmillan as No 34 of the "New Edition" of Mrs Wood's works, was in fact a First Edition".


220 WYLDE, Mrs Henry [ie Jane WYLDE]: Severed Ties (1889)
First Edition in Three Volumes: F. V. White & Co., 1889. Three volumes in original brown cloth; lettered and decorated in darker brown on front boards, in dark brown and gilt on spines; pale green leaf-patterned endpapers.
