Baring-Gould, Sabine: A Book of Ghosts:. v1, 4 Feb 2008
A collection of ghost stories, some dating back to the 1850s. Most are slight tales of apparitions; the most interesting are 'Pomps and Vanities,' a tale of possession; and 'The Merewigs,' a farce in which persons who made no spiritual progress in their last incarnation must now haunt the British Museum.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould (28 January 1834 – 2 January 1924) was an English hagiographer, antiquarian, novelist and eclectic scholar. His bibliography lists more than 500 separate publications. His family home, Lewtrenchard Manor near Okehampton, Devon, has been preserved as he rebuilt it and is now a hotel. He is remembered particularly as a writer of hymns, the best-known being "Onward, Christian Soldiers" and "Now the Day Is Over", and the desk at which he wrote these hymns is still preserved at the hotel. He also translated the carol "Gabriel's Message" from Basque to English.
His education at The King's School, Warwick lasted just a few months in 1846 - he caught whooping-cough and was ordered to go abroad for the sake of his health. He then went up to Cambridge earning the degrees of B.A. in 1857, then M.A. in 1860 from Clare College.
