A VICTORIAN BRAD STEIGER?

In its May 1895 issue, The Literary News reported thusly on this astounding volume:

"From the histories of the great families of Great Britain are taken the remarkable and romantic incidents and episodes gathered together under the following headings: Fatal curses; the screaming skull; eccentric vows: strange banquets; mysterious rooms; indelible bloodstains; curious secrets, the dead hand; devil compacts; family death omens; weird possession; romance of disguise; extraordinary disappearances; honored hearts; romance of wealth; lucky accidents; fatal passion."

Here is a book of shrieks, shivers, and screams elegantly collated from hearsay, history, and legend, daintily offset by goosebumps of poetry.

AN ENGLISH ART BELL?

Break out the holy water and crosses. Fasten your buggy seat.

From the pen of the author of Folklore of Shakespeare: Lo! A nearly forgotten collection of the most unusual terrors, tears, and tasty thrills.
