About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The Strange Case of Dr. M.K. Jessup

Publisher: Saucerian Books, Clarksburg, WV

Publication Date: 1963

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Near Fine

Edition: 1st Edition


Clarksburg, WV: Saucerian Books, 1963. First Edition. Stated. Quarto, stapled wraps, 79 pp. + book ads. Toning at the margins of the covers (see scan), otherwise a crisp Near Fine - rather startlingly, as this historic title from early UFO lore was inexpensively made and easily worn and damaged. A true, stated first edition of Barker's accumulation of information on the curious suicide of UFO author/researcher Morris K. Jessup. That his suicide - from "acute carbon monoxide intoxication", per the included facsimile of the actual death certificate included here- was questionable for several reasons (probably most notably his assumed activities with regard to the investigation of the Navy's alleged "Philadelphia Experiment", which see and with regard to the enigmatic "Carlos Allende") has made Jessup a subject for segments in a wide variety of documentaries. A nicely-preserved copy of a title which is extremely scarce as the 1963 true first edition. L63. Bookseller Inventory # 001316
