New York: Pantheon Books, . Octavo, cloth backed boards. First edition. The author's continuation of his family's Holocaust story, told in graphic novel form. "Like its predecessor, "Maus: A Survivor's Tale II. And Here My Troubles Began" is a serious form of pictorial literature, sustaining and even intensifying the power of the first volume. It resists defining labels." - Lawrence Langer, NY Times review, 11/3/1991. Spiegelman's work on the Maus, volume one, is one of a small number of works published in the late 1980s which brought the term "graphic novel" into the mainstream. The two volumes received a special Pulitzer Prize: Special Awards and Citations-Letters. This volume also won the Los Angeles Time award for fiction, 1992.

Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons, Ltd., 1912. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-187 [188: printer's imprint], original pictorial blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. A collection of nine ghost stories dedicated to Swain's longtime friend M. R. James. "...Swain's tales share many features with those of James' and draw on the friends' common interests and antiquarian studies. They are however rather milder in tone and regularly incorporate a playful humour not often found in James' work. The tales relate the adventures of a fictionalized version of the author, Mr Batchel, Rector of Stoneground parish. Although by today's standards, readers may find Swain's stories rather lacking in supernatural horrors, their subtle qualities become apparent on re-reading, and many find Mr Batchel one of the most enduring creations of English ghost fiction." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 468. "The stories are subtle, the supernatural intrusions preserving reminders of past crimes but rarely hurting anyone." - Barron (ed): Horror Literature 3-193.
