P1. Abdy Collins, B, The Cheltenham Ghost, 1st and only edition, Psychic Press 1948, Cr8vo, blue cloth with black titles to spine, with a frontispiece, 4 illustrations in the text and a double page facsimile. The only popular in depth account of one of the first cases investigated by the S.P.R, the apparition of a women that appeared for several years during the 1890s, and often known as the Morton case after the later married name of its chief witness. A few minor spots to cloth, edges of text block very lightly browned, minor foxing and ownership inscription to front end paper, contents otherwise clean and tight. An increasingly uncommon title and quite scarce in the dust wrapper.  A near very good copy in good (virtually complete and unclipped, but with some small unobtrusive tape repairs to the blank verso, some wear to edges, spine panel rather rubbed, and with a small white correction fluid mark to foot, a few other minor marks, lightly soiled) d/w £50

P6C. Dreller, L, Beginner’s Guide to Mediumship, 1st edition, Rider 8vo pbk. 1997, reprinted, 14 + 127pp including index. Edges of covers lightly rubbed, and with a few trivial marks. Upper corner lightly bumped, crease to top corner of one leaf, otherwise very good £2

F08A. Forman, J, Haunted East Anglia, 1974, Jarrolds 8vo pbk. 2005, 144pp including index, with photograph illustrations in the text. One of the standard works detailing supernatural occurrences throughout East Anglia. A couple of trivial marks to covers, corners lightly bumped. Very good £1.50

P08C. Goodrich-Freer, A, & John, Marquis of Bute, The Alleged Haunting of B------ House, 1899, new edition, Arthur Pearson 1900, 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt titles to spine, 28 + 244pp + advertisement leaf, with 2 full page plans of the house, fore and lower edges untrimmed. The controversial true story of the alleged haunting of Ballechin House, the S.P.R. being critical of Goodrich-Freer’s methods, and any further investigation at the time of this second, revised edition made almost impossible by the house’s then physical occupants. However, all this did not prevent the place being dubbed ‘the most haunted house in Scotland’ for some time. It is perhaps then, rather fitting that this copy bears the ownership inscription to the front paste-down of someone intrinsically connected to Borely Rectory, ‘the most haunted house in England’, the two cases often now compared due to the similar nature of their respective phenomena.  L. (Len) Sewell was instrumental in investigating and recording details of the rectory after its destruction by fire. His plans and findings, many of which challenge the conclusions of Harry Price, were featured in Peter Underwood and Paul Tabori’s The Ghosts of Borley. A few minor marks to cloth, light wear to spine ends and corners, edges of text block browned, internally clean and tight. A near very good copy and interesting association copy of the best edition of a scarce book £60
