For the first time since 1898, readers can experience Henry Jamess eerie The Turn of the Screw the way his original readers did, as a twelve-part weekly serial.

The Coffeetown Press edition showcases the novel as it first appeared, complete with provocative illustrations by John La Farge and Eric Pape, in Colliers Weekly. This unique edition, with an analytical introduction by Peter G. Beidler, will of course be valuable to scholars. It will be particularly useful, however, for undergraduate classroom use. It allows readers to experience first-hand the suspense generated by the week-by-week grouping of chapters.

It also lets them read the young governesss story of her dangerous encounter with prowling spirits as it first appeared, before James made the 500-odd changes in wording he introduced later. After reading Beidlers detailed appendix analyzing all of Jamess revisions, readers will see that in many ways this earliest version of The Turn of the Screw was Jamess best.
