Description:Very Good/Fair. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Hadrback Hardback. First...Very Good/Fair. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Hadrback Hardback. First Edition. Foxing to end inside covers. Wear and tear to D/J. Here are portrait studies of some of the most extraordinary people whose lives have ever been recorded in the pages of history. Beginning with the story of a flying man of the 17th century, Dr. Dingwall goes on to describe other odd people, such as the convulsed and the crucified fanatics in a Parisian cemetry a century later, and the amazing and almost incredible 'Angel Anna' over whose nameless crimes even the medical press had to draw a discreet veil. Lest the sceptical reader should suppose that these studies must be fictional, Dr. Dingwell has added an appendix to each chapter giving not only full documentation but also a discussion of each case from the medical and psychological points of view. With twelve plates. 198 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc. )
