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. James' catalogues of the manuscript holdings of eight Cambridge colleges (Clare, Trinity Hall, Magdalene, King's, Queens', St Catharine's, Christ's and Sidney Sussex) are bound together in this volume, which will be welcomed by librarians and researchers alike.
