True Irish Ghost Stories. Dublin: Hodges Figgis, 1914. First edition.  Pp xix, 273, uncut. Navy cloth, titled and ruled in gilt on upper cover. Light shelf-wear to covers, contents in very good condiiton.  In 1913, St. John D. Seymour realized that Ireland's folklore and fairy-tale collections were well served, but the country's rich tradition of ghost stories was for the most part untapped. Working with Harry L. Neligan, he set out to gather a few. The editors published a request for anecdotes in the newspapers of the day and got a great deal of response which form the basis of this work.  'True Irish Ghost Stories' provides a peek at late 19th- and early 20th-century Ireland, the superstitious natures of its people and the gleeful but hushed manner in which they approach the supernatural. A revised edition with additional stories, appeared in 1926.
