The dedicatee was his second wife, Eveline Beatrice Auford (Trissie) Roskams. The book is reasonably firmly bound in the publisher's blue cloth lettered in gilt, the spine is faded, the cloth is slightly marked and rubbed and the extremities are bumped.
The text block is age toned, slightly foxed and dusty with some passages highlighted in pencil, also a few pencil corrections. An excellent collection of short stories and sketches, many involving aspects of horror or the supernatural, including time-slips and out of body experiences. The provenance is equally good, the book is from the estate of Esmé Wynne-Tyson, author, actress and philosopher, with whom Beresford co-habited and co-authored eleven titles, via the estate of Esme's son, Jon Wynne-Tyson, author, publisher and reluctant King of Redonda.
