It's well known that the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, was a great believer in the supernatural. This caused great problems for his relationship with Harry Houdini. In the same year as Houdini's death Doyle wrote a two-volume history of spiritualism exploring all of the major events and characters connected with the belief. This book collects together both volumes and is a fascinating record of spiritualism through the eyes of a believer at a time when it was in great conflict with the world of performance magic. Entertainingly written with a thorough index.
