This is a lecture invited by Ipswich Art Society on the occasion of their 150th anniversary. It uses that anniversary as a springboard for exploring another: namely, the 120th M. R. James' Ghost Stories of an Antiquary.

The lecture, delivered on 23 May 2024, is divided into two parts. The first part addresses the theme of the visual in James' ghost stories, while the second part considers James' literary output as an extension of the genre of landscape art.
