A fine, detailed, and ephemeral promotional broadside for Uriah Clark’s Plain Guide to Spiritualism, a proposed large octavo volume of superior type, paper, and binding, from the press of the stalwart spiritualist publishers who here make much of the fact of the broad appeal of the proposed work, “exactly what has long been needed by all classes, Spiritualists and Anti-Spiritualists, reformers and conservatives; a book for the hand, for centre-tables, circles, conferences, conventions, discussions, libraries and public rostrums; for skeptics, inquirers, friends, neighbors, the weak in faith, the despondent, the hopeless, the fallen, the afflicted. . . .” Includes as a sample of the work its table of contents.
