Note:Ref. Adams A-719. Alexander ab Alexandro (1461-1523) was a Neapolitan lawyer of great learning. His work, the "Genialium Dirrum" is a miscellany of learning and philology, somewhat on the model of the "Noctes Atticae" of Aulus Gellius. The first edition was printed at Rome, 1522. In his book it appears that he lodged at Rome in a house that was haunted; and he relates many surprising particulars about the ghost, which show him to have been credulous, although perhaps not more so than his contemporaries (Wikipedia)
