Light age tanning to interior. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; From a Reviewer: "Terrific Pulp Horror Series! Jules de Grandin is a French doctor living in New Jersey, peerless and fearless investigator of the occult whose battles with evil were chronicled in more than 60 stories published in the 1920s and 1930s by his creator, pulp writer Seabury Quinn. De Grandin is not above dealing justice to those he confronts, especially if there is no legal recourse. Decades later his stories were reprinted in a series of paperbacks of which this is one. In this volume, de Grandin and his chronicler and host, Dr. Trowbridge, find themselves confronted with an ageless female aristocrat who lives on in the form of a bloodthirsty statue, disguised North African ghouls who have unwisely relocated to de Grandin's adopted home, a transplanted chapel haunted by evil ghosts of the Knights Templar, and more. Quinn delivers his creepiest tale in this collection with a non-paranormal thriller about a mad doctor seeking a hideous revenge on the young woman who jilted his dead son. Regrettably all but forgotten these days, Quinn's heroic doctor was featured in the well-known Weird Tales magazine which also showcased work by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, and others. There is a liberal use of dialect and stereotypes and mildly racist references, but the stories are first rate and not only worth reading, but worth hunting up. " (140os/13) .
