THE STONES OF MUNCASTER CATHEDRAL. [London and New York]: Viking, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Collects two stories, "The Stones of Muncaster Cathedral" and "Brangwyn Gardens." "As soon as steeplejack Joe Clarke begins restoring the southwest tower of Muncaster Cathedral, he senses the presence of an overwhelming evil connected to one of the cathedral’s gargoyles. Shortly thereafter, Joe’s young son sleepwalks to the tower, and another boy from the neighborhood turns up dead. Delving into the history of the cathedral, Joe’s uncovers a horrific revelation about the tower’s construction. 'The Stones of Muncaster Cathedral' is one of Robert Westall’s finest works, a superb antiquarian ghost story firmly in the tradition of M. R. James." - Boyd White. A fine copy in fine dust jacket.
