The Encylopedia of Death
and Life in the Spirit World
Volumes, I, II and III

By J. R. Francis

Approx. 7 and 3/4 inches wide x 9 and 3/4 inches tall
Publisher: Chicago: The Progressive Thinker Publishing House
Date Published: Vol.I - 1903; Vol. II - 1900; Vol. III - 1900

There are a total three volumes of this series and I have acquired the entire set. These are rare first editions, not the new softbound reproductions that are currently out there.

These volumes are old, all of the the spines are solid and intact. The inside pages of Volumes I and II are in remarkably good shape for their age, and Volume III is somewhat yellowed with age but otherwise Volume III is in pretty good shape.

All three have blue boards with faded silver titles.

All three have been rubbed, bumped, with some minor edgewear.
