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.
