A Discovery Concerning Ghosts: With a Rap at the "Spirit-Rappers."
London: Frederick Arnold, 1863.
First edition. Signed by George Cruikshank on the front wrap. 48 pp. Publisher's blue wrappers. Very Good+, lightly worn at extremities and a little soiled. An expose of the various absurdities of spiritualism and their assumptions about the spirit world (he wonders why ghosts always appear with clothes on, for instance; did their clothes follow them to the spirit realm?) by the famous illustrator, derisively "dedicated to the 'ghost club'" of his day on the front wrap. Rare signed. Item #140941912
