This charming fantasy story for children is by the famous writer of ghost stories, M. R. James. The author of a letter reveals how he finds five mysterious jars, hidden since Roman times, and samples the contents one by one, gaining magical powers in the process. But he is not the only one who knows about the jars - dark forces are eager to claim them for themselves. This lovely new edition from Benediction Classics reproduces all the original line drawings in this unusual tale that still has the power to fascinate and send a shiver down the reader's spine.
