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.
