Ghost Hunters: the Victorians and the Hunt for Proof of Life After Death, Deborah Blum
1 Deborah Blum Ghost Hunters: the Victorians and the Hunt for Proof of Life After Death
Arrow Books 241954 Great Britain 2007 0099469340 / 9780099469346 Softcover Good Condition In Victorian Britain, a group of eminent scientists got together to found a society expressly to prove the existence of ghosts. The age of Darwin represented the greatest scientific advances known to man. The tension between science and religion was exposed by Darwin's On the Origin of the Species in 1859, which challenged the basic tenets of belief. Yet many of those in the forefront of the scientific revolution could not give up the idea of a higher reality. Life after death was the unknown frontier. Victorian society was full of mediums claiming they could communicate with the spirits of the dead. Baffling psychic phenomena occurred every day at seances: mysterious rappings were heard, furniture moved, ghostly forms appeared, the mediums spoke in the altered voices of the dead with information only their nearest could possibly know. Pyschometry involving locks of hair and watches and children's toys; telepathy; ouija boards; apparitions; astral projection: all were commonplace. In 1882 the Society of Psychical Research was founded in London to investigate all these phenomena: it was a group led by some of the greatest scientists of the age but its membership also included Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Leslie Stephen, Virginia Woolf's father, John Ruskin, the Reverend Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain). Six months later William James, Professor of Psychology at Harvard, and the brother of Henry James visited London and went on to set up American branch. Their experiments went on for years. Many mediums, like the notorious Madame Blavatsky, were exposed as charlatans yet there were some mediums who continued to communicate directly with another world, who despite every rigorous scientific test seemed to prove that souls survived death. This is the story of this group of forward thinkers: many of whom were driven to the spirit world by personal tragedy, some whose feeling of loss lead to their own suicides. It is the story of the greatest ghost hunt of any age. 370 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Holy Place: The Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau - Discovering the Eighth Wonder of the Ancient World, Henry Lincoln
4 Henry Lincoln The Holy Place: The Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau - Discovering the Eighth Wonder of the Ancient World
Jonathan Cape 244827 London 1991 0224026968 / 9780224026963 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good In 1970, Henry Lincoln came upon the enigma that surrounds the small village of Rennes-le-Chateau, set in the foothills of the Pyrenees. "The Holy Place" is a natural and perfect pentacle of mountain peaks surrounded by a titanic, man-made temple. The author had to decode the most cryptic of clues that have dispersed down the centuries in paintings and parchments, on tombstones and in churches. It has now been revealed as an immense geometric temple, stretching for miles across the landscape, a constellation of pentacles, circles and hexagons. The complexity of its engineering far exceeds that of the pyramids of Egypt and led the author to question just how it could have been built. Using evidence in measure-mapping and surveying, the author demonstrates that the basic measurements for this amazing structure has a precise mathematical basis and is not the result of arbitrary calculations. Henry Lincoln is the co-author of "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" and is the presentor of BBC TV's "Chronicle" programmes. 176 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

New York City in the 1970s is a dark, dangerous, and threatening place. One of the bright spots in this decaying metropolis is Paul Konig. As the city's chief medical examiner, he has developed an impressive reputation for his skills in forensic pathology - skills that will be put to the ultimate test when a dangerous psychopath kidnaps Konig's daughter. Herbert Lieberman takes his readers on a gruesome journey through the ten most difficult days in the life of a man at the very end of his rope. In addition to being awoken to phone calls featuring his daughter's desperate screams each night, Konig's professional life is in danger. Between the case of a serial killer who leaves a trail of severed body parts in his wake; the investigation of questionable forensic work on an alleged prison suicide under Konig's watch; and the naked ambitions of a deputy medical examiner, it will take every ounce of Konig's strength to save his own life - as well as his family's. 366 pages.
