First edition. The book has been bound by Bayntun-Riviere in black half leather with black boards, gilt title and raised bands to the spine, the top edge is gilt and it has some rather snazzy patterned endpapers. The book is firmly bound, there is some minor wear and slight bumping to the extremities. The text block is slightly toned with a few minor marks and a bookplate to the front pastedown. A very handsome first edition of M. R. James’ Collected Ghost Stories.
