Lafacadio Hearn’s Kwaidan

We have another spooky book from our collection. This one comes from the Limited Editions book club. Published In 1901, Lafacadio Hearn’s Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things contains a variety of legends and ghost stories that Hearn learned while living in Japan during the turn of the 19th century.

This special edition published in 1932 has a beautiful binding, illustrations by Yasumasa Fujita, and most importantly ghosts.
