Happy Halloween, everyone! To celebrate this most eerie occasion I have found a Regency “ghost story” to share with you. It was first published in Ackermann’s Repository on March 1st, 1824 and tells the tale of a spooky prank servants played on their master, a French Major. While it is not really a spine-tingler, it is a fun read, spiced with a little saucy innuendo. ;)
Since the story is about goblins, I have chosen two gorgeous Edwardian book illustrations by Arthur Rackham to accompany it.
But now, I present to you the ghostly “Monsieur Kobold”:
And that was it already. I hope you will have a fun night and get to take your beautiful costumes for a stroll. :)
