"Antiquarian ghost stories, by no means tedious, deftly balancing a light tone with darker terrors. One of the more notable successors to M. R. James." - Robert Knowlton. "A beautifully illustrated and highly sought after collection of Gray's supernatural tales which is a classic of the antiquarian ghost genre ... Although the stories are firmly in the antiquarian tradition of Gray's Cambridge contemporary M. R. James, they are strong enough to stand on their own merits, combining ghostly atmosphere with wit and erudition in a highly entertaining and original manner." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 237.
