Joints a little rubbed, backstrips very slightly darkened. Very good. Tenth Edition. Finely bound copies of BarhamÕs long-popular ÒIngoldsby Legends, which began to appear in 1837 in Bentley's Miscellany. Under the guise of Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Everard in Kent, Barham ÔdiscoveredÕ old documents which provided the basis for his tales. In effect, most of these are reworkings of other narrative sources, from medieval chronicles to Kentish legends and Sir Walter ScottÓ (DNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
