The History & Hauntings Series:
GHOSTS BY GASLIGHT
The History & Mystery of the Spiritualists & The Ghost Hunters
by Troy Taylor (2007) $18.95

 

Journey back in time with author Troy Taylor as he delves into the history and mystery of the Spiritualist movement and the efforts of the first ghost hunters to investigate the earliest evidence of contact with the spirit world! Beginning with the Fox sisters, “Ghosts by Gaslight” explores the famous and little-known mediums and proponents of Spiritualism, the mysterious cases that baffled the scientists of the day and even the incidents of outright fraud that have given the period such a colorful reputation. The book’s second half is devoted to the scientists, researchers and magicians who investigated the claims of the Spiritualists and how they debunked --- and accepted – the strange incidents that occurred.

This is a chilling, mystifying and entertaining addition to the history of ghost research and a must-have book for curious history readers, ghost buffs, paranormal investigators and anyone else who wonders about the things that go bump in the night! Includes More than 300 photographs of the strange, the unusual and the bizarre!
