Tedious Brief Tales Of Granta And Gramarye

Ingulphus (Gray, Arthur)

The First UK Printing published by Heffer and Sons in 1919. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Clean and bright in publisher's grey paper covered boards with neat previous owners details to the front back end paper. Light age related soiling and rubbing to the boards in places. Very slight cracking to upper front hinge. Some very light spotting but 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. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

Ingulphus ( Arthur Gray )Introduction by Rosemary Pardoe and Mark Valentine / Ash Tree Press

Ashcroft, British Columbia: Ashcroft, BC (previously Pennyffordd. Chester, UK ): Ash Tree Press / AshTree, 2008, 1st Edition, First Printing, 2008. ----------hardcover, a Fine example, in a Fine dustjacket, unread, ---" ARTHUR GRAY (1852 - 1940) was Master of Jesus College, Cambridge from 1912 - 40, and it is Jesus College that acts as the backdrop for the series of stories collected as Tedious Brief Tales of Granta and Gramarye, many of which first appeared in The Cambridge Review. Here are gathered the true history of the godless and dissolute Everlasting Club, whose members swore to meet annually on All Souls' Day, be they alive or dead, until the ghastly events of their final meeting; the story of the alchemist Anthony Ffryar, last survivor of the plague of 1551; the mystery of the death in 1643 of the mathematician and alleged necromancer Thomas Allen (who may have doubled as the first Jesus College cat); the tale of the theologian Matthew Makepeace who, disappointed in his academic career, discovered in 1604 the secret of how to transfer his soul into the body of a promising undergraduate; and many more. This new edition from Ash-Tree Press includes all of the illustrations by E. Joyce Shillington Scales from the original edition, and also presents additional material, including two fascinating papers presented by Arthur Gray to the Cambridge Antiquarian Society. There is an Introduction by Rosemary Pardoe and Mark Valentine. ---CONTENTS: Introduction by Rosemary Pardoe and Mark Valentine; To Two Cambridge Masters; The Everlasting Club; The Treasure of John Badcoke; The True History of Anthony Ffryar; The Necromancer; Brother John's Bequest; The Burden of Dead Books; Thankfull Thomas; The Palladium; The Sacrist of Saint Radegund; Suggestion; Appendix I: The Soul of Vernon Lennox; Appendix II: [i} On the Late Survival of a Celtic Population in East Anglia; [II] On the Wandlebury Legend."---,, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED///.
