21 Russell, Randy and Barnett, Janet. THE GRANNY CURSE AND OTHER GHOSTS AND LEGENDS FROM EAST TENNESSEE.

146 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "Witches who fly down chimneys. A chair that won't release its occupant until a drop of blood stains the floor. A mountain that grew - and continues to grow - from the grave of a woman who was larger than life. The ghost of a woman who jumps on the bumpers of cars driving past the graveyard where she is buried. An apple tree that growls at people who pick its fruit. A woman who rose from her grave each night to get food for a baby born to her after she had died. A peach tree that grows on the head of a deer. These and other legends and ghost stories handed down for generations are contained in this collection of twenty-five tales from East Tennessee. The locales for these stories range from Roan Mountain to Chattanooga; from Cades Cove to Hancock County, where the Melungeons live; from the Sequatchie Valley to the Cumberland Plateau. The stories themselves are enhanced by Appalachian folk wisdom and tidbits about mountain traditions." This is a new unread book, in publisher's shrinkwrap.

23 Schuchard, Marsha Keith. WHY MRS BLAKE CRIED: WILLIAM BLAKE AND THE SEXUAL BASIS OF SPIRITUAL VISION.
London Century 2006 0712620168 / 9780712620161 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
448 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w illustrations. "Much has been written about the work of William Blake and some of the religious beliefs that influenced him, but there is a secret history which, until now, has been kept deep beneath the surface in the mystical underground of England in the eighteenth century. Here, leading Blake scholar Marsha Keith Schuchard reveals an altogether more intriguing and controversial picture of the poet and artist. The discovery of Blake family documents took (her) on a journey of detection that led her to a cast of radical characters including Cagliostro, Zinzendorf and the mystic Swedenborg, and to a world of waking visions, sexual-spiritual experimentation, kabbalistic magic, tantric sex and free love. (This book) offers a new insight into the work of Blake and takes us on an extraordinary journey through secret societies and ancient rituals." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very light browning on top of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds, two small edge tears archivally taped.

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-

29 Waite, Arthur Edward. Introduction by Paul M. Allen. LAMPS OF WESTERN MYSTICISM.
New York Rudolf Steiner Publications 1973 083341720 Soft Cover Very Good 
334 pp, 7" H, soft cover. B&w illustrations. "A truly modern path to the spirit as described by the author of this book does not imply alientation from the demands and requirements of everyday life, but rather enhances man's ability to live that life more fully, earnestly and fruitfully. This development follows certain definite steps which have as their preliminary goal the harmonizing and balancing of the inner life in terms of objective, ultimate reality. Beyond this, the path opens out to a still higher attainment, ultimating in that sublime, conscious oneness with the divine, described in writings of those men and women who have attained at least the first experience of this highest of goals. This book was written in order to open before us the prospect of that goal, to outline at least the first steps on the path leading to it, and to introduce us to some of the human beings who have achieved noteworthy results in this quest, particularly in the Western World." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - one tiny corner crease, minor rubbing,small ghost sticker mark on front cover.

POETRY AND MYSTICISM., Wilson, Colin.
30 Wilson, Colin. POETRY AND MYSTICISM.
San Francisco City Lights Books 1969 First Edition Soft Cover 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.
31 Wilson, Colin. POLTERGEIST! A STUDY IN DESTRUCTIVE HAUNTING.
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.
