About this Item: S. R. Wells & Co., New York, NY, 1880. First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 250pp. Original grey cloth lettered & decorated in gilt on spine, black decorative panels and gilt illustration on front board. Mitchell, a Reverend gentleman, questions Spiritualism, asserting that all its phenomena can be explained in accordance with the normal rules of science. He is quite eloquent on the subject: "Spiritualism is called 'the New Science;' but is it science to contradict physiology by declaring a man is alive when he is dead, and when his lungs are decomposed? That the thinks when the brain is thus destroyed? That he lives without nourishment, walks without legs, flies without wings, talks without organs of speech, and uses the living organs of others, but cannot use his own simply because he has once vacated them. The word 'philosophy' which gives the reason of things, is carefully avoided in the ghost literature. It is called 'the New Religion,' and the hope it holds out to its adherents is to make them ghosts; but they will nevertheless pay the doctors large sums to prevent the metamorphosis from taking place." From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the first blank page. Cloth lightly chafed overall with a few marks to rear board, a little frayed at spine ends and corners with a short closed tear at rear edge of both spine ends, page-edges lightly browned, a few scattered light pencil marks - a few dozen pages only (easily erased), otherwise a solid near VG copy. Scarce. Seller Inventory # 52482
