Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe



Jarrow Gauntlett, young architect from the Washington D.C. area, wants to become an actor because his girl, Celandine, is one. The only problem is that Jarrow is a dead ringer for prominent actor, John Wilkes Booth, and it’s 1865 and Booth is at the height of his popularity. But Jarrow is adamant about Celandine, so he tries to follow both paths—acting and architecture—and they lead him to a séance at the most mysterious domicile in all of Washington: Ramble House! From there his life takes a turn that only Harry Stephen Keeler could describe. It has a 15-page introduction that details the history of Ramble House. 

  This 356-page trade paperback contains the complete text of the novel written in 1958, never before published in English.
