    Book details

Many a strange and curious romance has been handed down in the history of our great families, relative to the terrible curses uttered in cases of dire extremity against persons considered guilty of injustice and wrong doing. It is to such fearful imprecations that the misfortune and downfall of certain houses have been attributed, although, it may be, centuries have elapsed before their final fulfilment. Such curses, too, unlike the fatal "Curse of Kehama," have rarely turned into blessings, nor have they been thought to be as harmless as the curse of the Cardinal-Archbishop of Rheims, who banned the thief—both body and soul, his life and for ever—who stole his ring.

Review Text

  • By movielover on September 10, 2013

    A large compendium of British ghost stories and other superstitious lore. Entertaining. Makes one wonder if Wilkie Collins was familiar with any of the lore herein mentioned, as the tales catalogued here are of the same romantic and superstitious nature. While merely entertaining in this enlightened age, many of these tales must've provided shudders to audiences at the time.
