SIGNED. 168; 170; 147pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] 1/4 navy blue cloth with various shades of paper over boards. With only very minimal edge-wear to the covers. Erroneously, Bellairs began to sign the rear free endpaper of The Revenge of the Wizard's Ghost. All are in the dust jackets, featuring the artwork of Edward Gorey. There is a small glitter stain on the rear panel of the dust jacket of The Mummy, The Will, and The Crypt. The bottom fore-edge corners of the jacket flaps are clipped, however the prices are intact in the top fore-edge corners. Very good + / very good +. Item #52635
