SIGNED — ARTHUR FORD: THE MAN WHO TALKED WITH THE DEAD 1ST/1ST 1973
RARE! A SIGNED First (1st) Edition, First Printing from 1973 of a wonderful vintage biography — “the authoritative biography of the world’s greatest medium." By Allen Spraggett (with William V. Rauscher). The iconic Arthur Ford, “the medium through whom Bishop James Pike said he talked with his dead son, was the most amazing psychic personality of our era. King George of Greece, Queen Maude of Norway, Upton Sinclair, psychologist William McDougall, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, and Aldous Huxley were among those who witnessed the mysterious powers of this man."
SIGNED by the author, with a note to his fellow author James B. Alfredson. A newspaper clipping of the Pike Seance (outlining alleged cheating) is included.
The book comes from the personal collection of James B. Alfredson, a fellow author of the spiritualist movement and its key figures. As an author and collector of unique works, his books are in pristine condition — and many are signed by the books’ authors; please see my other listings for more such books on the occult, magic, and spiritualist movement.
A truly excellent and unique collector’s book on magic, spiritualism, and the occult!
