Title   GHOST STORIES OF LONDON.

Book Condition   Very Good

Publisher   Edmonton Ghost House Books 2004

ISBN Number    1894877446 / 9781894877442

Seller ID   24538

224 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "With its rich history and dramatic personalities, London has long been considered one of the world's most haunted places. In this fascinating new collection, storyteller Edrick Thay combs ten centuries of history in search of the city's most terrifying and interesting ghosts. In the armory of the Tower of London, a mysterious force throws a cloak over a guard's head and begins to choke him; a long-dead earl carries his head through a concealed door in Holland House, now a youth hostel; Dick Turpin, a notorious highwayman (and sometime kissing bandit), haunts the charming Spaniards Inn in Hampstead; clad in deerskins and a helmet of antlers, the former game warden of Windsor Castle returns to the spot where he took his own life centuries ago; the bleak spirit of one of Henry VIII's luckless wives reappears in a chapel at Hampton Court, site of her scandalous and untimately fatal love affair; wavering on the edge of the London Embankment, suicidal ghosts terrify eyewitnesses near Cleopatra's Needle; the spirit of a gorgeous 17th-century lady, brutally murdered by a jealous suitor, materializes in Bleeding Heart Yard; a famous stage actor revisits the Adelphi Theatre, his former stomping grounds, for an otherworldly encore; an Egyptian mummy brings death and mischief to the British Museum, leading many to label it as cursed - and more." Interior - previous owner's name in ink on first page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - tiny bump at bottom of hinges, and at corners of covers, two very soft creases on front cover.
