James, M. R. (n.d.). Ghost Stories of an Antiquary. Retrieved from

If anyone is curious about my local settings, let it be recorded that St Bertrand de Comminges and Viborg are real places: that in ?Oh, Whistle, and I?ll Come to You? I had Felixstowe in mind. As for the fragments of ostensible erudition which are scattered about my pages, hardly anything in them is not pure invention; there never was, naturally, any such book as that which I quote in ?The Treasure of Abbot Thomas? ?Canon Alberic?s Scrap-book? was written in 1894 and printed soon after in the National Review, ?Lost Hearts? appeared in the Pall Mall Magazine; of the next five stories, most of which were read to friends at Christmas-time at King?s College, Cambridge, I only recollect that I wrote ?Number 13? in 1899, while ?The Treasure of Abbot Thomas? was composed in the summer of 1904.
