New York, Bobbs-Merrill, 1907. First edition. A woman is hired to be companion to the mayor's wife who has lately been in a fearful state. No one knows the trouble, and the twist ending won't be revealed until we've seen a haunted house, kooky old sisters, secret rooms, and more. A lovely copy with a pictorial cover, b&w illustrations, and just a touch of wear to the extremities. $20.00.
