The Edge of The Unknown
New York, Putnam's. 1930, 39. First American edition: 8vo. Publisher's grey cloth titled in green to spine, near fine, minor edgewear and bumping to spine ends, clean and sharp. In an example of the scarce dustwrapper, somewhat worn to the edges with areas of shallow chiupping to the spine ends. Tape reinforcement to hinges and joints of dustwrapper. Internally clean, two bookseller labels to pastedown. Shows very well. Doyle explains his engagement with spiritualism and relates his fiery disagreement with the renowned showman and escapologist Houdini, a sceptic. The book is a testament to Doyle's belief in psychic revelation as well as an insight to the temper of the times. Houdini's supreme skill as an exponent of illusion was ironically the basis for his underhand attempts to expose those 'mediums' he perceived as charlatans.
