The Rosemary Records, First Selection.

Manchester, England: Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1932. First Edition. Softcover. Small octavo. 42pp + vi pp adverts. Original beige stapled wrappers, lettered in black and red and bordered in red. A collection of articles by Dr. Frederic H. Wood on the mediumship of "Rosemary," a girl of his acquaintance who was said to have channeled messages from an ancient Egyptian princess who communicated in the language of ancient Egypt. In a later book, "Ancient Egypt Speaks" (1937) Wood and his colleague A. J. Howard Hulme told the story of Rosemary, and outlined what they said was the pronunciation of ancient Eygptian. The back wrapper was obviously wanting, and has been rather ingeniously replaced with a sheet of thick plain buff paper. The front wrapper is mounted on a stub and is a little darkened around the edges, which have a few short tears. Pages a little darkened in places. The repair is difficult to spot, and otherwise a nice copy of a scarce work. Item #63062
