Henland, Cecil (arranger), The Ghosts of My Friends, New York:, Frederick A. Stokes Publishers, n.d. [1901?], first edition, 8vo (4" x 6.75"), Hardcover, dark green textured cloth boards w/ gilt titles & b/w illus pastedown, Near Fine / none as issued. Slightest bumping/rubbing to spine foot, otherwise pristine inside and out.

Unpaginated. Only 2 page have been used, the second of which is dated 19011. So is that 1901 or 1911 - not sure. This title has never carried a publication date to our knowledge. Nevertheless this is the nicest copy we have ever offered! (Our image is very large. Click once and then again to allow scrolling.)

"Directions. Sign your name along the fold of the paper with a full pen of ink, and then double the page over without using blotting paper." Turn of the century novelty for fun in the parlor...simpler times.

The result is a somewhat symmetrical image from the bleeding of the ink onto the other half of the page, which does look rather like a ghost or skeleton of sorts. See also Your Hidden Skeleton on this site. As these books were not dated, we don't know which publisher originated the idea!
