Ghost Stories of an Antiquary By M. R. James Eight classics by great Edwardian scholar and storyteller. "Number Thirteen," "The Mezzotint," "Canon Alberic's Scrapbook," more. Renowned for their wit, erudition and suspense, these stories are each masterfully constructed and represent a high achievement in the ghost genre. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

Classic stories by celebrated writer but the text is scrambled with many chapter headings and titles appearing randomly throughout the text which makes this virtually unreadable.

CANON ALBERIC¿S SCRAP-BOOK `They were in the sitting-room of the house, a small, high chamber with a stone floor, full of moving shadows cast by a wood-fire that flickered on a great heart.¿ (p.13)Canon Alberic¿s Scrap-Book was first published in 1904, although it was written in 1894.The story is set in southern France. An English tourist is photographing the interior of the cathedral of Saint-Bernard-de-Comminges at the foot of Pyrenees, when the cathedral¿s sacristan tries to sell him a strange book. The Englishman is impressed by a drawing in the book. After buying it, he returns to his room, and ¿`his attention was caught by an object lying on the red cloth just by his left elbow. ¿A pen wiper? No, no such thing in the house. A rat? No, too black.A large spider? I trust to goodness not - no. ¿God! a hand like the hand in that picture!¿ (p. 23-4)

This collection of ghost stories is a best a very interesting book. Primarily, there is some difficulty with the older version of the English language, but eventually you do get into it. Worth reading.

Half the book is missing. After five weeks and two calls to customer service, I still have only half the book.
