Beschreibung

Part of the "Collector's Library" series, this book's Afterword is by the well-known crime writer and eminent Sherlockian, David Stuart Davies. It features a brief biography of the author and a reading list. It contains the stories "The Experiment", "The Malice of Inanimate Objects" and "A Vignette", among others.

Montague Rhodes James was born in 1862 at Goodnestone Parsonage, Kent, where his father was a curate, but the family moved soon afterward to Great Livermere in Suffolk. James attended Eton College and later King's College Cambridge where he won many awards and scholarships. From 1894 to 1908, he was director of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and from 1905 to 1918, was Provost of King's College. In 1913, he became vice chancellor of the university for two years. In 1918 he was installed as Provost of Eton. A distinguished medievalist and scholar of international status, James published many works on biblical and historical antiquarian subjects. He was awarded the Order of Merit in 1930. His ghost story writing began almost as a divertissement from his academic work and as a form of entertainment for his colleagues. He never married and died in 1936.
