The book: Scarce and nice first US edition of this book on Spirit Photography by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Spirit photography was a type of photography whose primary aim is to capture images of ghosts or other spiritual entities, especially in ghost hunting and has a strong history dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The idea of capturing the spirit world was popularized in the Victorian era, a time when spiritualism and contact with the dead were popular social pastimes and photography was still a relatively new and exciting technology. A rare find in any condition!
