Original cloth spine and front board bound in at the back. A little occasional foxing but overall a very attractive copy in a beautiful fine binding.

Comments

The Ingoldsby Legends is a collection of myths, legends, ghost stories and poetry written supposedly by Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Manor, actually a pen-name of an English clergyman named Richard Harris Barham. Included are: The Spectre of Tappington; The Hand of Glory; The Witches' Frolic; The Jackdaw of Rheims; The Lay of St. Cuthbert; or the Devil's Dinner-Party: Raising the Devil: A Legend of Cornelius Agrippa; The Wedding-Day; or, The Buccaneer's Curse: A Family Legend and many many others. Rackham's illustrated edition is here revised and largely redrawn from the original 1898 edition, so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note).
