Publisher Hermetic Press Inc. Seattle 2004
VERY SCARCE edition — and SIGNED and inscribed by author Barry Wiley on title page. First edition first printing of "The Georgia Wonder: Lulu Hurst and the Secret That Shocked America." The book is in near mint condition. The dust jacket is in excellent condition save minor rubbing to very small portion of top of DJ spine.
The centerpiece of The Georgia Wonder is Lulu Hurst's own 1897 autobiography. With this book Miss Hurst astonished America a second time. Her act was like nothing that had appeared on stage before. She seemed to have a "power" that gave her a supernatural strength without her showing the least muscular effort.
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.
