COBWEBS FROM AN EMPTY SKULL. Ambrose Bierce, as Dod Grile. COBWEBS FROM AN EMPTY SKULL.
London: George Routledge and Sons, 1874. First edition. His third book. Dark fairy tales collected from his appearances in the British periodical "Fun"; illustrated with satirical wood engravings by the Dalziel Brothers. It should be noted although that Starrett (4) contends an 1873 paperback precedes this hardcover, BAL (1100) proved the paperback was actually not published until 1884. Publisher's decorative green cloth stamped and lettered in gilt & black (Starrett lists green as one of three cloth colors, however BAL doesn't mention green). Contemporary owner's name and date in faded ink on front endpaper, minor shelf wear to spine ends and corners, still very good or better.

FIEND'S DELIGHT. Dod Grile, Ambrose Bierce. FIEND'S DELIGHT.
London: John Camden Hotten, [1873]. First edition of his first book. A collection of California stories written while he was in London and for which he was never paid (the publisher gave Bierce with a post-dated check and then died before it was due). In original purple-brown cloth with gilt vignettes on front cover and spine. Rubbing on corners and edges but still very good and scarcer in the London edition than the later American edition.
