NEWS FROM THE INVISIBLE WORLD; or Interesting Anecdotes or The Dead. In a Number of Well Attested Facts.Bound with A VIEW OF JUDGMENT
J. Tregortha; J. Gray & Company, Burslem; Manchester 1823 - pp. 454, 164 + index [6], +[1] + Directions to the Binder [1]; 11 leaves of plates. The title to the first work continues ."Shewing their power and influence on the affairs of mankind, with several extracts and original pices from the writings of the best authors. The whole designed to prevent infidelity, shew the states of separate spirits, and Evince the certainty of the World to Come. A new and improved edition." The first work is not dated but the second work is dated 1823, but both works were printed by J. Gleave, the second work also published by Gleave. It would appear that these two works were designed to be bound together. The directions to the Binder lists 12 plates, but only 11 are bound here - there is no evidence of a 12th ever having been bound in, with no associated browning to neighbouring pages at the point it should have been bound in. Other copies we have located have also only had 11 plates. The binding whilst contemporary is poor; the front board is missing and the leather to the spine is chipped and loose, the first couple of pages detached. It is in need of rebinding. The contents are good and complete, but some pages are well thumbed and it would appear to be a well-read copy; occasional scattered foxing more or less throughout, more pronounced to some pages; a couple of plates worn along the plate mark, one with loss to the fore-edge margin, but no affecting printed part. A few pages also chipped/torn to margins but not affecting text. A good copy in need of rebinding. Size: 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]
