“Apparitions; or, The Mystery of Ghosts, Hobgoblins, and Haunted Houses” is a collection of amusing real-life stories relating to supposed ghost encounters and supernatural experiences. It was written with the aim of dispelling fears and superstition surrounding the subject, which the author attempts to do by examining real accounts and showing them to be "trifles light as air." Contents include: “An Essay on Ghosts and Apparitions”, “The Dominican Friar”, “The Superstitious Couple”, “The Haunted Bed-room”, “The Westminster Scholars”, “The Ideot's Funeral”, “The Ventriloquist”, “The Female Fanatic, and Heavenly Visitor”, The Dead Man and Anatomical Professor”, “The Drunken Bucks and Chimney-Sweep”, etc. Interesting and entertaining, this volume would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition designed for a modern audience. This book was first published in 1815.
