Item Description: Claude Kendall, 1931. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. 1st Edition. First edition. Inscribed in green ink by novelist Tiffany Thayer on first blank page to his father, notable actor and blackface comedian Elmer E. Thayer: "To / Pops, to assure / him I am keeping / good company, / Tiffany Thayer." He made a habit of dedicating his books to his father; in at least one known case sending the very first copy off the press to him. The company to which he refers would be the Fortean Society, named after this book's author. It was founded by Thayer to celebrate the release of this very book in 1931. Members present at the official founding included Theodore Dreiser, Ben Hect, H.L. Mencken, Booth Tarkington and other literary heavyweights. A well-traveled copy: Good+ with rubbed spine lettering and spine ends worn in a Poor tattered original dust jacket, missing most of spine panel. An excellent association that documents the birth of the original anomaly-hunting Fortean Society, which would survive until 1959. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 160801006

Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize such anomalous occurences, and the International Fortean Organisation and the Fortean Times remain devoted to the phenomena he studied. The publisher's retained copy with a few minor annotations to the dust jacket and their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown. Scarce in the dust jacket.
