Signature collection book. Henland, Cecil (arranged by). "The Ghosts of My Friends". London: Dow and Lester, ca. 1920. Small 8vo. A dedication by pen on the front flyleaf ("Mrs. de Daubek with R. A. Thornton's kind regards. Xmas 1929"). (4) pp., (31) leaves with signatures ("ghosts"), (17) blank leaves. Orig. leather binding with gilt title on the front desk and on the spine.

An interesting type of signature collection book in which signatures and their folded, axially symmetric spilled prints create fantastic figures ("ghosts"). - Contains mainly signatures of members of noble families: eg Thurn Taxis, Dietrichstein, Daubek (also Jarmila Novotná-Doubková, famous Czech opera singer) dated 1930-32. - Good condition.
