From the collection of Berkeley book collector and letter press printer, John Ruyle, with his notes in penvil on the front free endpaper. Bleiler checklist.
Stories, one weird. In "Let Loose," involves a crypt and the hand of a dead man that kills. The U.S. edition is the only edition with "Let Loose."
