Attractively bound in full speckled calf by Root & Son, light wear at corners and hinges. Scattered foxing, mostly to the plates, but a generally clean copy. Quite popular - even attracting a parody - and much reprinted, Cockton's novel helped lead to the widespread popularity of ventriloquism by the end of the century. Not marked as such, but from the great Sperber collection of magic books. xx, 3-620pp. Size: Octavo (8vo). Illustrator: Onwhyn. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Literature & Literary; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Inventory No: 044460.
