“ABRACADABRA!”

 

A scarce and difficult to find, 1842, printing of the famous “Ingoldsby Legends.” This collection of myths, ghost stories, and poetry was written by R.H. Barham, who is better known by his pen-name, Thomas Ingoldsby. This beautiful vellum-bound printing features seven brilliant macabre illustrations by John Leech and George Cruikshank.

 

 These legends were extremely popular from their inception in 1837. While this collection is less popular today than it was in the 19th-century, it does include aspects that are still recognizable – the magic command “Abracadabra” and a version of the children’s song Bingo! Other selections in this second series include:

  • The Black Mousquetaire
  • Merchant of Venice
  • Nell Cook
  • Aunt Fanny
  • Dead Drummer
  • Babes in the Wood
  • Raising the Devil
  • Of the Old Woman Clothed in Grey
  • Smuggler’s Leap
  • And more!
