The Vampire - His Kith and Kin
THE VAMPIRE HIS KITH AND KIN
By Montague Summers London, K. Paul Trench, Trubner (1928)
Montague Summers (1880-1948) was supposedly a member of the Roman Catholic clergy, although it is unknown exactly where and when he was ordained. There is a thirty year gap in his biography during which it is speculated he dabbled in the dark arts. Summers wrote numerous serious books about the witch hunts, vampires, werewolves, and other occult subjects.
In this work Summers discusses the vampire phenomena from a relentless Catholic perspective; he either believes in the literal reality of vampires, or is pulling our leg. However, this is not a hoax. This book has all of the apparatus to qualify as an academic study, including footnotes, extensive quotations in the original languages, and references to rare source documents. Of particular interest is the final chapter, which traces the development of the vampire craze in 19th century literature.
This book contains 388 pages.
