THE GHOSTS OF VERSAILLES

First edition, first printing. Original navy cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated throughout with black and white plates. A lovely fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents, with offsetting to the free endpapers, are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owners' stamps or inscriptions. Complete with the beautiful illustrated dustwrapper that is very lightly rubbed to the extremities but remains bright and without loss or tears. Not price clipped (21s to the bottom of the front free endpaper).

An in-depth and open minded investigation of the 'Moberly-Jourdain Incident' in which two English women claimed to have witnessed a time-travel event and ghostly apparitions, including that of Marie Antoinette, while visiting the grounds of the Palace of Versailles in 1901, an account of which they published in 1911 as 'An Adventure'.
