James, M. R.: Ghost Stories of M. R. James (complete collec,illus). v2. 31 May 2016

Ghost Stories of M. R. James By Montague Rhodes James (1862–1936)
With four illustrations by James McBryde (?–1904), and five by Simon Vedder (1866–1937)

The contents of this book were first published 1898~1936.
This book is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+70” or less.


Montague Rhodes James was a noted British mediaeval scholar and author. He was provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–1918) and of Eton College (1918–1936). He is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are widely regarded as among the finest in English literature. One of James’ most important achievements was to redefine the ghost story for the new century by dispensing with many of the formal gothic trappings of his predecessors, and replacing them with more realistic contemporary settings.

----------------------------
This collection includes all thirty-three of his ghost stories written for publication (posthumously published fragments are not included). The appendix presents a number of writings by James commenting on ghost stories and the supernatural.

Set in the early twentieth century, these stories are elegantly written with a restrained but powerful atmosphere of terror. Vengeful ghosts, evil demons, black-hearted men dabbling in the occult – these lurk in ordinary British locales, waiting to pounce. Without ever descending to nauseating grue and gore, James can make your hackles rise.


----------------------------
The text for this ebook was obtained from The Complete Complete Ghost Stories MOBI ebook posted on MobileRead by contributor Mousewaffle. Illustrations were retrieved from archive.org

A number of transcript errors have been corrected; segments of misplaced text re-located; missing italics restored; punctuation and spelling for several stories Anglicized; some translations of Latin and French phrases annotated. Story titles are cross-linked to in-line Table of Contents.

These are beautifully made editions.

However, I'm a bit confused about your titles and the differences between these two.

When I load them into calibre, the metadata reflects that they have the exact same titles.

Your summary info seems a bit confusing (to me, anyway).

One is called this: "Ghost Stories of M.R. James The Complete Collection"

The other title is this (ON THE COVER): "The Collected Ghost Stories of M.R. James." A few pages into the book, however, there is this title: "Ghost Stories of M.R. James The Complete Collection."

As well, the TITLES for the ATTACHED downloads are different, which further leaves me confused about the differences.

If these are the same collections, is there a reason that you would make them both available for download?

If they are NOT the same collections, can you give further information on how they differ?

--- Again, these are beautifully and lovingly realized collections, but if they're the same, then I only want to have one on my Kindle.

Thanks.

I have just uploaded Version 2, with additional illustrations, in mobi and azw3 formats.

My apologies, Dr. Drib, I can only plead to end-of-month grogginess after dealing with baffling financial and inventory reports.

The text remains the same in all versions I have posted, only some formatting improvements. This upload has 5 additional illustrations--- Big Thanks to DMcCunney for finding those!

Thank you. -- I'll download the newer version.

I'll be checking your other titles you've put together, because of the way your ebooks look.

Thanks, again!
