: "Carnival of Death" Anyone know where this phrase originated?

I would've guessed George A. Romero or someone from the Hammer Studio but imdb.com lists no film by that name. Some Googling turns up an 1822 work called The Carnival of Death by Thomas Bailey, a poem in two cantos dedicated "to the societies of England and America, associated for the dissemination of pacific principles throughout the world".
