Overview

A Descriptive Catalogue of the Manuscripts in the Fitzwilliam Museum: With Introduction and Indices by Montague Rhodes James

M. R. James (1862-1936) is probably best remembered as a writer of chilling ghost stories, but he was an outstanding scholar of medieval literature and palaeography, who served both as Provost of King's College, Cambridge, and as Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and many of his stories reflect his academic background. His detailed descriptive catalogues of manuscripts owned by colleges, cathedrals and museums are still of value to scholars today. This volume contains James's catalogue of the manuscript holdings of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and will be welcomed by librarians and researchers alike.
