Montague Rhodes James (1862 – 1936), who wrote as M. R. James, was an English medieval scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–1918), and of Eton College (1918–1936). He is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are regarded as among the best in the genre. James redefined the ghost story for the new century by abandoning many of the formal Gothic cliches of his predecessors and using more realistic contemporary settings. However, James's protagonists and plots tend to reflect his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the originator of the "antiquarian ghost story." This volume collects 27 of his classic tales, including: CANON ALBERIC'S SCRAP-BOOK LOST HEARTS THE MEZZOTINT THE ASH-TREE NUMBER 13 COUNT MAGNUS QUIS EST ISTE QUI VENIT THE TREASURE OF ABBOT THOMAS PART 2: THE FIVE JARS THE DISCOVERY THE FIRST JAR THE SECOND JAR THE SMALL PEOPLE DANGER TO THE JARS THE CAT, WAG, SLIM AND OTHERS THE BAT-BALL WAG AT HOME PART 3: MORE GHOST STORIES OF AN ANTIQUARY CASTING THE RUNES THE ROSE GARDEN THE TRACTATE MIDDOTH THE STALLS OF BARCHESTER CATHEDRAL MARTIN'S CLOSE MR HUMPHREYS AND HIS INHERITANCE PART 4: A THIN GHOST AND OTHERS THE RESIDENCE AT WHITMINSTER THE DIARY OF MR.
