Product description

Product Description

Male chauvinist, resentful of those who were "not content to attend strictly to their own particular fakes", retiring from a thoroughly dishonest vocation but not paying back his victims, the author has many faults. But he does expose the methods employed by "mediums" like himself to commit fraud. He not only upsets the miserable work of many a charlatan but also details the methods employed by honest prestidigitators.
This carefully put together near-exact reproduction of the original edition from 1891 excludes all notes, noises and comments that had come to be associated with the title for a century. Authorship could not be attributed to anyone based on surmise for this anonymous work.
Wrote the author that, he would bring down on his head the curses of many hundreds of mediums, for, if this work were very widely read, there would be few save the lecturers who could do business. However, when it was published in 1891 spiritists burnt every copy of it they thought existed and destroyed the printing plates. They did fail to annihilate it and copies surfaced years later. Now that it has been carefully digitized it is hoped that the title will gain immortality and expound and entertain.
The author hopes that he has so fully explained the tricks that the frauds will find it difficult to capture your silver, and if you are ever "nailed to the cross", it would be through means other than those used by the gentry treated of.
He phantasizes that he and others will live again and meet friends that have preceded them and see and visit friends on earth, although not through the organism of any depraved arbiter as he himself had been.
No religion so satisfactory nor so reasonable and just in its teachings, but the fact that he met no professional medium throughout his career who were not crooked leads him to caution us against attempting to get rich through their aid, finding buried treasures, gold and silver or anything one can better attend to personally.
