    An essay on capacity and genius; to prove that there is no original mental superiority between the most illiterate and the most learned of mankind; and that no genius, whether individual or national, is innate, but solely produced by and dependent on circumstances. Also, an enquiry into the nature of ghosts, and other appearances supposed to be supernatural. by [MITCHELL, William Andrew]

    London: W. Simpkin and R. Marshall; Doig and Stirling, Edinburgh; and J. Cumming, Dublin. n.d. [but ca. 1820]. 8vo., (2) + xix + (2) + 22 - 537 + (3)pp., including the half-title and final errata leaf, a few occasional pencil marks, very small unobtrusive library stamp on blank upper margin of title and occasionally elsewhere, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, with marbled edges, sometime neatly rebacked with the original spine label replaced. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. A curious 'essay', perhaps by a native of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (the book was printed in Newcastle by J. Mitchell, possibly a relative). It is dedicated to John Locke's 'immortal memory' and is laced with references not only to Locke himself but also to many of the great 18th century philosophers. The Enquiry into the nature of ghosts>, which comprises more than 200 pages in the latter part of the volume, includes many examples of allegedly supernatural appearances. The author evidently takes the pragmatic view that ghostly phenomena are in fact readily explained by logical, non-supernatural, circumstances.
