Dealer Notes
A rare Gothic tale (though not in Summers) by Dorset’s ‘forgotten poet’ (see Dorset Ancestors on-line). There are 3 entries for this title in ESTC, T57336, collating as here, T57336 calling for 103 pages, and N43384 calling for only 64. All the entries are recorded in very few locations. The tale is also noteworthy dialectically: see http://www.dialectfiction.org/novel.jsp?id=62
