Introduction by Richard Dalby.
Condition: As New
Charlotte Riddell's four novellas, which originally appeared as seasonal Routledge's Christmas Annuals, are perfect examples of the Victorian ghost story, combining with a baffling 'whodunnit' murder mystery in each case.
All four are now published together in one volume for the first time with all original illustrations by Randolph Caldecott, A. Chantrey Corbould and D. H. Friston. This omnibus edition marks the long-awaited revival of both The Haunted River and The Disappearance of Mr. Jeremiah Redworth after being out of print for an entire century.
