    William Fryer Harvey. The Beast with Five Fingers Twenty Tales of the Uncanny. Edited with an Introduction by Maurice Richardson. New York: Dutton & Company, Inc., 1947.

    First edition. Octavo. 219 pages.

    Publisher's black board covers with lettering and an illustration blind-stamped onto the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket in black, yellow, and white. One small mark on the front cover, tiny closed tears to the head and spine of the jacket, very minor bumping to the corners of the jacket. Partially unopened. Altogether a tight, clean, and very good copy.

    William Fryer Harvey (1885 - 1937) collects twenty of his best known mystery and horror stories in this volume. Interestingly, the short story and title of this volume The Beast with Five Fingers was made into a movie in 1946 directed by Robert Florey.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
