My Occult Diary.

London: Rider & Co., 1951. First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 252pp. Black cloth with gilt title, etc. to spine, b&w frontisportrait, & illustrations, index. Cornelius Tabori was a crime reporter, journalist and author with an interest in the occult and psychical research, who for almost 40 years kept a diary in which he recorded his encounters with occult phenomena. Although heavily focussed on the use of occult methods in the detection of crime, he had a broader interest in the subject, attending seances with well-known mediums, taking part in psychic experiments, investigatin poltergeist experiments, etc. Cornelius Tabori perished in Auschwitz in 1944, but rather remarkably his diaries survived, and were edited and translated and edited by his son, Paul Tabori, who, like his father - was a writer with an interest in psychical research. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, although not marked as such. Light bruising to spine ends and corners, page edges darkened, tape offset / discolouration to endpapers (evidently the dust jacket once had some sort of protective cover with tape on it which browned and transferred to the endpapers), else a tight, unmarked VG+ copy in VG dust jacket (Dust jacket is a bit edge rubbed with a few tiny tears and chips, clipped).
