Fiends, Ghosts and Sprites
Richard Bentley, UK 1854 - 1st Edition 1854. A wonderful early book dealing with the origins and beliefs in the supernatural. First Edition of the second publication of John Netten Radcliffe (1826–1884), who was to become a leading epidemiologist and public health activist. The present work was written while he still was at the Leeds school of medicine, before he entered service in the Crimea as a surgeon attached to the headquarters of Omar Pasha. The text includes learned discussions of comparative folklore, ghosts, dreams and modern spiritualism, with an appendix reprinting Extracts from Professor Faraday’s Letter on Table Moving, from the Athenaeum, 1853. The spine-lettering identifies it as part of the "Parlour Book-case". Bound in the original cloth binding. Book is very good and bright for it's age. Edges lightly rubbed. Contents good with large inscription to endpaper. Endpapers cracked at hinges but binding tight. Pages bright with occasional marking and usge marks.Un-common.
