Lo!London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1931 Stock Code: 93613
First UK edition, first impression. Originally published in the US earlier the same year. Perhaps Fort's most popular work, this is his third published non-fiction book, in which he is widely credited as having coined the term teleportation. Charles Fort (1874-1932) was an American writer and researcher into examples of the occult, supernatural, and paranormal. Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize such anomalous occurences, and the International Fortean Organisation and the Fortean Times remain devoted to the phenomena he studied. The publisher's retained copy with a few minor annotations to the dust jacket and their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown. Scarce in the dust jacket.
Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With dust jacket.
Foxing to edges and endpapers; an excellent copy in the faded and slightly soiled jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities.
