It is on these short stories that Peter Haining has largely drawn for this collection....The book has a general introduction which expl ai ns t he de ve lo p ment, success and eventual demise of the Bluebooks, and in addition each story is introduced with details of its provenance and other relevant information."

352 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "(O)ffers a very different kind of tour to the armchair traveler. Wander through the haunted castles and cottages of Europe with Hans Holzer, the world's most famous psychic investigator, and explore a full range of psychic phenomena from the spirits of the British Isles to the haunts of Imperial Vienna. In England, Anne Boleyn's legendary ghost walks headless within the Tower of London; a procession of transparent monks appears in the Cathedral of Winchester, where no monks have trod since the sixteenth century; and Bloody Queen Mary still visits the four-poster bed where she slept in the dark days of 1553. At Kilkea Castle in Kildare, it is said that the Wizard Earl and his companions ride at night and will return someday from the beyond to 'put things right in Ireland'. Room No. 2 in the Hotel de l'Europe in Avignon holds a shocking surprise for the unwary guest; and in Paris, No. 3 avenue Montaigne offers a special concert of ghostly piano music from a spectral grand. Ghost occur wherever great tragedy has left an unfortunate person stranded between the next world and this one, someone who has not yet been freed from their emotional turmoil. The true accounts presented in this book are based on Dr. Holzer's personal investigations." One page leaf with two very small scollops at fore-edge. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, minor browning to inside edges.

Cassell, London, 1973, first edition. 
213 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0304291838 B&w illustrations. "When John Raynor, composer of nearly seven hundred song settings, died so tragically in a road accident in 1970, he left behind not only his lifetime's musical work, but the manuscript of this enchanting account of the years of his childhood. His father was Arthur Guy Sandars Raynor, a famous Master of the King's Scholars at Westminster School, and the young John spent his earliest years in the g r e y p r e s ence of London's great Abbey. History and tradition were the day-long companions of the perceptive, sensitive child, who indeed was born at No. 3, Little Dean's Yard, 'that inmost court of an inner court, the quietest and dreamies t p la ce i n L on do n' . But there were sounds and colours and images that were to stay with him all his life and which he recorded so evocatively in this book: the brilliant-hued flowers of Westminster's secluded gardens; the magic of first h ea rin g t he Abb ey 's glo rio us organ; the clocks of London that became a lifelong passion; nursery fires and braziers; his mother's jewel case and his father's butterfly case, full of dazzling, glittering, shimmering things to feast a child's ey es. Te rror an d sa dne ss also cas t their shadows, to persist into later life: a haunted bedroom which drove the five-year-old boy to the brink of a nervous breakdown; the nameless, primitive horror borne on the wind from a tannery; the dreade d ch urch door whic h pro ved to have had h um an skin nailed to it; the death of a brother, killed in the holocaust of 1918. This is a quiet, gentle book, written by a gentle man whose love for the England that he knew shines as surely in these 'r ecoll ectio ns in tran quilit y' o f a happ y, com ple te childhood at the beginning of the century as it does in the songs by which he has so greatly enriched English music."

POLTERGEIST!  A STUDY IN DESTRUCTIVE HAUNTING., Wilson, Colin.

London New English Library 1981 0450048802 / 9780450048807 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good- 
382 pp, 8 3/4" H. "The Black Monk of Pontefract began disturbing the Pritchard family in 1966. Bangings in the night, objects flying across rooms, and a mysterious black-robed figure, whose appearances became more and more frequent. The police, the local MP and the vicar were all witness to the extraordinary happenings which continued to plague the household, and all attempts to exorcise the presence were met with mockery. In this definitive work (Colin Wilson) examines the recorded evidence of this and other famous poltergeists. Cases of hauntings have been recorded since ancient Greece and Rome. Poltergeist means 'banging ghost', because of their habit of making loud noises and throwing objects around. This book is not about Black Magic. But it is about the strange forces that surround us, and of which most of us are totally unaware. These forces may make us feel uncomfortable and may even terrify us, but there is not point in closing our eyes to them." Chapter headings: Professor Lombroso Investigates; Possession is Nine Points in the Law; Cases Ancient and Modern; The Black Monk of Pontefract; Fairies, Elementals and Dead Monks; The Black Magic Connection; Ghost Hunters and Ghost Seers; Speculations and Conclusions. A few very tiny light stains on title page, a 1"x3/4" area of surface paper loss at top corner of front pastedown - paper is glued to top corner of free front endpaper, small bump/wrinkle at bottom edge of pages 300 to 328, very small remainder mark on bottom of text block - migrates into bottom edge of some pages, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one tiny corner bump, very minor foxing on top of text block. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning - mainly top edge and on spine, tiny dent on rear panel, very light rubbing.
