Product description

Bells Rung Backwards - Oliver Onions (1953) - vintage hardback book - five ghost stories
 
Oliver Onions, "Bells Rung Backwards" (London and New York, Staples Press, "This selection first published 1953"). Vintage hardback fiction book (dark green cloth-effect textured boards, gilt titles and "Staples" crests) with original dustwrapper designed by Val Biro, 285pp, measuring approximately 14 x 20.3 x 2.6cm (5.5 x 8 x 1in). A scarce collection of five ghost stories: "The Rosewood Door" (1926), "The Woman in the Way" (1922), "The Honey in the Wall" (1922), "John Gladwin Says" (1930), and "The Painted Face" (1927). "What are ghosts for if not to walk again? The ghosts in this book are no ordinary spectres with clanking chains, but creatures of flesh and blood anchored to the past."
 
The dustjacket (now covered by a clear protective sleeve) is marked and discoloured with age wear including bumping, creasing, indentations, short tears and slight loss, although it has not been price-clipped; the boards are slightly marked with discoloration / fading (especially to the edges) together with edge wear including a small round indentation to the front and wear including slight bumping to the edges and corners; there is some discoloration and foxing to the inside covers / endpapers and the page edges, and the front endpaper is indented to the top right corner where old prices have been erased; the pages are discoloured with occasional marks together with age wear including bumping to the edges and some corner creases.
