James' biographer R. W. Pfaff, Jessopp was "a fine specimen of the learned but somewhat eccentric country parson. His "An Antiquary's Ghost Story" is moderately well known, but few people are aware that he composed others in the final decade of the nineteenth century.He and MRJ became friends when they collaborated on their remarkable study and translation of the 12th century Life and Miracles of St William of Norwich by Thomas of Monmouth (1896) which MRJ discovered in a Suffolk church. MRJ almost certainly read "An Antiquary's Ghost Story" in advance of composing his own vastly more famed Ghost Stories of an Antiquary. AUTOGRAPHED by the editor. Bookseller Inventory # 2042
