Publisher:Coward McCann, Inc, New York, 1935. Preface by Edith Oliver. Hardback, no dustjacket, 104 pages, b&w illustrations including fold-out maps of Versailles and the Trianon and gardens and sketch map showing the route the authors took on Aug 10th 1901 when they sighted the 'ghostly figures from the 1789 period'. Cover, in green boards with gilt titling to spine, is in good condition commensurate with age with a little fading to spine and edges and a little bumping to spine extremities. Internally, the book is in good, clean and tight condition with clear text pages, illustrations and maps. Very light tanning to pages commensurate with age. Rough cut page edges as common at the time. Absolutely fascinating account by Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain of what they saw on Aug 10th 1901 while walking in the gardens near the Grand Trianon at Versailles - namely their encounter with a number of mysterious figures dressed in the style of 1789 wandering the grounds , and for which no logical explanation could be found. Was it all a hoax or did they indeed see figures from the 18th century somehow imprinted on present day Versailles? Ghostly haunting, time travel or something else?! Sceptical or not, you will be intrigued by this story.
