AN ITINERANT HOUSE AND OTHER STORIES

San Francisco: William Doxey, 1897. First Edition. Hardcover. The principle collection of Dawson's short stories and poems, many of which first appeared in the Argonaut, Overland Monthly, and other California periodicals. The work is notable not just for its merit as atmospheric supernatural fiction, but for its detailed description of 19th century San Francisco. Recently, writer and editor Peter Straub included the title story of this collection in the Library of America anthology of American Fantastic Tales. 320 p. with 10 illustrations by Ernest C. Peixotto. 12mo. Original green cloth binding, with decorative gilt stamping. Period bookseller's label to the rear pastedown. Tiny nick to the top edge of the front board, with some mild wear to the corners and tips; otherwise very good. Very good. Item #69909
