"IT'S ALL TRUE"
HOUDINI, Harry. A Magician Among the Spirits. New York, 1924.
First edition of Houdini's controversial attack on fraudulent mediums and psychics, a work he described as his "monument," an exceptional and desirable presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Rabbi I. Jesse Bienenfeld, Best wishes & regards from Houdini, October 30, 1925, 'and it's all true.'" Additionally boldly signed with a flourish by Houdini on the dedication page, and again on page 270, the final page of text. With a handwritten comment on page 210 that reads, "Zancig [another magician] has given me a sworn to letter that he fooled Sir A C Doyle and tells me how he did it in spite of the fact that ACD said it was real telepathy. H." Page 264 includes a marginal comment "died 1924 – H.H." And finally on page 206 Houdini has crossed out text from the book and initialed his correction "H.H." $12,500.
