About this Item

First edition. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's dark blue cloth titled and decorated in gilt and white to spine and front board. Minor edgewear and scuffing to extremities. Strong, bright and sharp. A very handsome copy indeed. Internally clean, minor spotting to prelims. An extremely scarce piece of supernatural pseudo-scientific weirdness dealing with the emerging science of Necrology and the discoverer of the revolutionary Necrolite. As you do. Upward, now almost entirely forgotten, was a poet, lawyer, part time politician and occasional author. His main claims to fame are that he coined the word "Scientology" in 1901 (that went well), and committed suicide in 1926 apparently as a direct result of George Bernard Shaw winning the Nobel Prize, an honour which Upward considered due to himself. A very rare object. Bookseller Inventory # 40585
