German stories of ghosts
This collection, ascribed to Jean-Baptiste-Benoît Eyries, was
published in Paris in 1812 as
a 2-volume set called Fantasmagoriana, ou Recueil d'Histoires
d'Apparitions de Specres, Revenans, Fantômes. . .. Although it
seems clear that the French version was what the party amused themselves
with, it was translated into English by Sarah Utterson under the title,
Tales of the Dead, in 1813.
Under the supposition that little will
have been lost in the translation, this
version is included in the present edition.
