THE VITAL MESSAGE. A. Conan Doyle.
THE VITAL MESSAGE.

THE VITAL MESSAGE.

New York: George H. Doran Company, n.d. [1919]. Original grey-green cloth printed in black, with dust jacket.

First American Edition of this sequel of sorts to THE NEW REVELATION, on the subject of spiritualism -- "one sees more clearly and broadly what our new relations with the Unseen may be," says Doyle in his preface. Included are examples of "spirit photography."

This copy is from the second issue (ending at page 164 rather than 160, due to the addition of a fourth appendix; p. vii was also altered to cite it). The volume is in fine condition, with a Christmas 1919 gift inscription penciled onto the front endpaper (the month of publication); the rather uncommon dust jacket, with the front cover question "Are the Dead Really Dead?", is very good-plus (very minor edge-wear, some faint foxing on the spine). Green & Gibson B25b.i. Item #14767
