I picked this book up for a few quid on a second-hand book stall last weekend. I've got a fair view of the Hitchcock-edited horror paperbacks but have never seen this large format hardback aimed at younger readers before. It's a 1962 first edition published by Random House (and therefore a US print - perhaps it was only published in the States). The illustrations are the real treat, especially those on the covers and endpapers. I love the Hitch-cum-Nosferatu shadow.
