SEARCHLIGHT ON PSYCHICAL RESEARCH
Book Details + Condition: Rider & Co.(London). First Edition, 1954. 396 pages with 15 Illustrations. Psychical Research is the investigation of phenomena that appear to be contrary to physical laws and that suggest the possibility of mental activity apart from the body. This book is a record of sixty years' work-interwoven with an intimate biographical sketch of Harry Houdini. It comes from the personal collection of James B. Alfredson, a fellow author of the spiritualist movement and its key figures. Tight binding; rubbed corners and edges; light shelf wear to boards, with fading and mottling to spine; text is clean and unmarked, save author's bookplate.
