About This Item

The First UK Printing published by Heffer and Sons in 1919. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Clean and bright in publisher's original grey paper covered boards with a neat gift inscription to the front end paper. Some very light spotting to the text-block but internally clean. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ or better condition with some losses at the spine ends not involving any lettering. A few closed tears with minimal losses at the corners. The wrapper presents well in the removable Brodart archival protector. A very attractive copy of a fragile work. A collection of Cambridge based ghost and 'horror' stories compared favourably at the time to the work of such worthies as M.R. James. B/W illustrations throughout by E. Joyce Shillington Scales. Some fine chilling tales including 'The Necromancer' (evil stalks through Cambridge in the guise of a cat) and the beautifully titled 'The Burden of Dead Books' which warns us never to let our greed for wealth coincide with annual gatherings of the unquiet dead. "Born on September 28th, 1852, Arthur Gray went from Blackheath Proprietary School (London) to Jesus, where he was to remain for most of the rest of his life, first as a student, then a Fellow and then Tutor. When he became Master of the College in 1912 he was the first non-ordained man to hold that post in the College's four-hundred-year existence. He married Alice Honora Gell in 1882 and became the father in due course of six sons. Mrs Gray died in 1927, but Arthur Gray lived on until 1940, when he departed this world on the 12th of April at the venerable age of 87. He was Master of Jesus until the end, and died in the Master's Lodge. Apart from progressive deafness, he'd had hardly a day's illness.". A scarce title with the wrapper. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
