Hieroglyphic Tales

by Horace Walpole

An odd little book of ' Hieroglyphic Tales' appeared in 1785, of which only six copies are said to have been printed. The 'Tales' were written by Walpole during the years 1771 and 1772. He described them as 'even wilder than the Castle of Otranto,' and assured his friends that, despite appearances, they were not written 'in the gout' nor when he was 'out of his senses.'
