De Montmorency (J.E.G.) The White Riders


and other sketches in war-time
London etc., Humphrey Milford, 1918.

First edition. 8vo. Original green cloth. Printed dust-jacket.

A collection of short stories, many of a supernatural nature. De Montmorency’s background was in law, but he was a prolific writer, “much of his published work is of a somewhat miscellaneous and transient character. He was one of the principal contributors to the series of monographs published by the Society of Comparative Legislation under the title of Great Jurists of the World, and he wrote the section ‘Sea-policy and the Alabama claims’ in the Cambridge History of British Foreign Policy, volume 3 (1923). Selections of the articles which he contributed to The Times and the Contemporary Review were published under the titles of The Never-Ending Road (1916), The White Riders (1918), and The Admiral’s Chair (1921).” (ODNB)
