They weigh evidence for and against each strange phenomenon to see what can be verified in the ancient and modern-day lore of the occult . I n ma ny in st ances, they find actual scientific support for astounding events...." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks.

GHOSTS I HAVE KNOWN:  THE PSYCHIC EXPERIENCES OF A NATURAL MEDIUM., Sonin, Eileen. (Signed)
22 Sonin, Eileen. (Signed) GHOSTS I HAVE KNOWN: THE PSYCHIC EXPERIENCES OF A NATURAL MEDIUM.
Clarke, Irwin, Toronto, 1969, Ist ed. 
171 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. SIGNED BY AUTHOR ON TITLE PAGE. "From a very early age (the author's) experiences as a natural medium have been many and varied: through transference, apports and, above all, an awareness of the presence of spirits. The ghosts have shown themselves to possess different personalities and have appeared for various reasons - to warn, to predict, to play mischievous pranks, to counsel. In addition to accounts of the author's personal spiritual ex p e r i e n c es, (the book) includes several fascinating chapters on such subjects as palmistry, astrology and numerology, and on how this lore can be used by each individual for self-analysis." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, faint w at er m ar k at b ottom edge of front board, minor soiling on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has several closed tears - archivally taped, light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, slight fading to spine color. Very Good -/V ery Go od-

23 Thay, Edrick. GHOST STORIES OF LONDON.
Edmonton Ghost House Books 2004 1894877446 / 9781894877442 Very Good 
224 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "With its rich history and dramatic personalities, London has long been considered one of the world's most haunted places. In this fascinating new collection, storyteller Edrick Thay combs ten centuries of history in search of the city's most terrifying and interesting ghosts. In the armory of the Tower of London, a mysterious force throws a cloak over a guard's head and begins to choke him; a long-dead earl carries his head through a concealed door in Holland House, now a youth hostel; Dick Turpin, a notorious highwayman (and sometime kissing bandit), haunts the charming Spaniards Inn in Hampstead; clad in deerskins and a helmet of antlers, the former game warden of Windsor Castle returns to the spot where he took his own life centuries ago; the bleak spirit of one of Henry VIII's luckless wives reappears in a chapel at Hampton Court, site of her scandalous and untimately fatal love affair; wavering on the edge of the London Embankment, suicidal ghosts terrify eyewitnesses near Cleopatra's Needle; the spirit of a gorgeous 17th-century lady, brutally murdered by a jealous suitor, materializes in Bleeding Heart Yard; a famous stage actor revisits the Adelphi Theatre, his former stomping grounds, for an otherworldly encore; an Egyptian mummy brings death and mischief to the British Museum, leading many to label it as cursed - and more." Interior - previous owner's name in ink on first page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - tiny bump at bottom of hinges, and at corners of covers, two very soft creases on front cover.

POETRY AND MYSTICISM., Wilson, Colin.
26 Wilson, Colin. POETRY AND MYSTICISM.
San Francisco City Lights Books 1969 First Edition Good+ 
79 pp, 8" H. "In (this) book, Colin Wilson has developed an argument which runs counter to the most popular trends in occult thinking today, to the extent that some might even call it 'non-Zen'. Finding that mystical experience and poetic inspiration can be 'pursued scientifically' and learned as one learns a foreign language, he has small enthusiasm for psychedelics and 'non-thought' methods of arriving at the expansion of consciousness, showing himself to be much closer to William James' 'Varieties of Religious Experience' than to Alan Watts or D.T. Suzuki." Interior - previous owner's name/date on half-title page, tiny crease at top edge of pages, small bump at bottom corner of pages. Exterior - light browning on spine and rear hinge area, soft crease at bottom corner of covers, tiny crease at top corner of rear cover, a few tiny foxing marks on covers.

POLTERGEIST!  A STUDY IN DESTRUCTIVE HAUNTING., Wilson, Colin.
27 Wilson, Colin. POLTERGEIST! A STUDY IN DESTRUCTIVE HAUNTING.
London New English Library 1981 0450048802 / 9780450048807 First Edition 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.
