TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, dated 15 February n.y.  on The American Psychical institute, Inc. letterhead, to Avon Books.

Avon did not publish any books by Carrington. Carrington (1880-1958) published over 100 books and pamphlets on various subjects, including paranormal and psychical research, conjuring and stage magic, and diet and health. His most important work was probably THE PHYSICAL PHENOMENA OF SPIRITUALISM (1907), a monumental work on fraudulent nineteenth-century spiritualism. Fine. (#162825).
