Six classic ghostly tales in the tradition of M. R. James — This delightful collection of classic ghost stories was the only foray into the world of supernatural fiction made by the renowned British architect Sir Thomas Graham Jackson. Jackson was born in 1835 and rose to become one of the most distinguished architects of his generation. He spent much of his career working within the academic environment of Oxford, England and his work on many college projects is enduring and highly regarded. The internationally famous 'Bridge of Sighs' over New College Lane is notable among them. Perhaps it was his long association with the world of academia that fostered a love of the 'Jamesian' style of the ghostly tale. In any event his own literary efforts-executed late in life at the age of 80- fall satisfyingly within that tradition. This concise book is now very rare and among collectors of supernatural fiction is a highly desirable find on the antiquarian book market. This special Leonaur edition is therefore an essential addition to the bookshelves of all enthusiasts. Available as a paperback as a collectors hardcover edition with a full cloth binding, head bands, gold foil embossed spine and dust jacket.
