Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1924. First Edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. xxii + 294pp. Blue cloth lettered & ruled in gilt on spine & front board. Index. B/w frontis & plates. The book was the result of many years of study by Houdini into the phenomena of Spiritualism: slate writing, spirit photography, manifestation, ectoplasm, etc. etc. from the time of the Fox sisters to the (then) present-day. His well-reasoned if somewhat blunt rejection of the claims of spiritualism were doubtless a factor in the decline of the movement, and also caused a rift between himself and the author and defender of spiritualism, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who until then had been a friend of Houdini's. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Cloth a bit rubbed and faded overall with very light damp marks to lower edges of both boards, spine ends & corners lightly bumped and chafed, page edges darkened & lightly thumbed, ink stamp of stamp of "Eugenics Pub. Co. Inc." at foot of title-page, page 245/246 untidily opened leaving one inch closed tear and one inch chip at lower corner, pages lightly browned with occasional light foxing, a few creased corners, faint small tide-marks on lower edge of last few pages, old bookshop sticker on rear pastedown. Still - overall a solid, & internally-clean VG copy in Good + example of the scarce dust jacket (dust jacket somewhat rubbed and darkened overall, a little chafed at points and spine ends, a few short edge tears, thin sliver missing from head of spine, not clipped). Quite scarce in dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 49446

Item Description: Harper Brothers, New York, 1924. A superb copy of this classic Houdini work in a splendid dust jacket. Handsomely bound in vertically ribbed blue-gray cloth stamped brightly in gilt on the front boards and on the spine. With yellow topstaining. Very clean and tight throughout; virtually unread. With a photographic frontispiece of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini at the Auto Club of London. All photos and diagrams are present. A lovely copy in a splendid dust jacket printed in black on blue-green paper. With the original price of $4.00 at the top of the inside front flap. With a touch of darkening to the spine and tiny chips at the top and bottom of the spine ends and at two of the corners. Printed on heavy stock, the jacket is sturdy and substantial. With touch of sunning to the top and bottom edges of the spine. A very handsome, collectible copy of Houdini's work on Spiritualism. Scarce in dust jacket in this condition. In the 1920s Houdini turned his energies toward debunking psychics and mediums, a pursuit that inspired and was followed by latter-day stage magicians. Houdini's training in magic allowed him to expose frauds who had successfully fooled many scientists and academics. He was a member of a Scientific American committee that offered a cash prize to any medium who could successfully demonstrate supernatural abilities. None was able to do so, and the prize was never collected. The first to be tested was medium George Valentine of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. As his fame as a "ghostbuster" grew, Houdini took to attending séances in disguise, accompanied by a reporter and police officer. Possibly the most famous medium whom he debunked was Mina Crandon, also known as "Margery". Houdini chronicled his debunking exploits in his book, A Magician Among the Spirits, co-authored with C. M. Eddy, Jr. (uncredited). These activities cost Houdini the friendship of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle, a firm believer in Spiritualism during his later years, refused to believe any of Houdini's exposés. Doyle came to believe that Houdini was a powerful spiritualist medium, and had performed many of his stunts by means of paranormal abilities and was using these abilities to block those of other mediums that he was "debunking". This disagreement led to the two men becoming public antagonists and led Sir Arthur to view Houdini as a dangerous enemy. (Wikipedia) First Edition. Stated "First Edition" with code "C-Y" on the copyright page. Bookseller Inventory # 311
