Text map. 8vo, stapled printed wrappers. "Immediately after a coal mine disaster caused by an intense underground upheaval that shook the adjacent community, six off-shift miners identified the tremor as a "bump" in the mind, but five others attributed it to various other causes. After exploring other explanations, it was found that all but one who identified the under ground upheaval had relatives in the mine at the time; none of those who identified the tremor as something unconnected with the mine had relatives in the mine. Four additional bodies of data strongly support the hypothesis that kinship relationships affect the meaning and perception of an ambiguous stimulus." -the abstract. "Minetown" the fictionalname given to the community affected by this "bump" was in fact Springhill , Nova Scotia. Presentation copy inscribed and signed by author.
