London: Richard Bentley, 1840. First Edition. Need to check points.
Written under the nom-de-plume of clergyman Richard Harris Barham, The Ingoldsby Legends was a collection of myths and ghost stories that blended humor with the grotesque. Largely composed in rhyme, the stories emphasize figures such as saints and gods; and they were published to delight a Victorian audience increasingly interested in sensationalist gothic literature.
