What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

First UK edition, published the year after the US edition.

Bound in the publisher's original cloth.

This intriguing work was written by husband-and-wife duo Walter and Litzka Gibson. Walter was an American author and magician who wrote more than a hundred books on magic, psychic sciences and true crime, and was best known for his work on the pup fiction character 'The Shadow'. Litzka was similarly involved with writing on this subject, being a teacher of palmistry.

This work surrounds many areas of the psychic sciences, including astrology, yoga, colorology, palmistry, telepathy and many more. The descriptions are illustrated with numerous vignettes, such as diagrams of the hand to demonstrate palmistry.

With the occasional library stamp of Waltham Forest Public Library.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, excellent, with light bumping to the head and tail of the spine, with a very small tear to the tail of the front joint. The odd mark to the rear board. Remnants of a label and the odd mark to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean, with the odd library stamp.

Very Good Indeed
