Printing Details

New edition, single volume bound in the original green cloth with gilt titling and motifs to spine and upper board, all edges gilt. 18 × 12cm, 468pp.

A collection of myths, legends, ghost stories and poetry, compiled by Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Manor (the pen-name of Richard Barham, a Kentish clergyman). The stories are based on real legends and mythology but are mostly deliberately humorous parodies or pastiches of medieval folklore and poetry.


A good reading copy. The cloth is rubbed and bumped a little, the inner binding pulled in a few places and the hinges cracked but holding. Previous owner's names to half-title.
