The Spiritual Herald: A Record of Spirit Manifestations

London and New York: H. Bailliere, 1856.

First edition. iv, 208 pp. Bound in publisher's elaborately blind stamped dark cloth with gilt spine lettering, yellow endpapers. Very Good+ with slightly sunned spine, slight wave to text, a little foxing to contents, former owner's bookplate on paste down. Nice shape overall.

The complete run in six issues of an anonymously-edited mid-19th century spiritualist publication, scarce in book format. Prophecy, ghostly manifestations in London, California, and the European continent, clairvoyance, mesmerism, fairies, "Sir Charles Isham on Spiritualism," and "Loss of the Steamship Pacific," are some of the many topics covered herein. A copy of this book apparently wound up in his Harry Houdini's collection; the famous magician was a skeptic and debunker of spiritualism. Item #140940710
