No author or publisher is stated, just the original $2.00 price. The LC copy has tipped in on t.p. a typescript note: ..."Phenomena", the nom-de-plume of a racketeering fortune teller, claims that this book is the result of 22 years of study in his pose at 'author'. ... it is a hasty compliation--the material it contains was deliberately stolen from older works and republished without credit ... The chapters on mind reading and personal magnetism were lifted intact from the noteable [sic] works of the late Dr. Sydney A. [sic] Flower... The assumed publisher and/or distributor is stamped on the LC copy title page "Wehman Bros." First edition.. First Edition. Paperback. Very good- condition. Octavo (8vo). (Inventory #: 017055)
