On the Edge of the Etheric

£19.99

Product description

The subtitle of this book reads 'or Survival After Death Scientifically Explained', and it has been enormously popular ever since its first appearance in 1931, the 1967 edition being the 65th. It is still available, in paperback (and probably e-book) form. On its first appearance, it was widely reviewed, and positively received, and clearly met a need for reassurance as to the survival of the human soul, possibly made more urgent by the gradual deterioration of international relations at the time. Other books, such as 'Life After Life', have been published more recently, but this is perhaps the first which aimed to explain eternal life in a scientific manner.

Arthur Findlay MBE JP (1883–1964) was a writer, accountant, stockbroker and Essex magistrate, as well as a significant figure in the history of Spiritualism, being a co- founder of the newspaper 'Psychic News' and also a founder of the International Institute for Psychical Research. In his will he left his home, Stansted Hall, to the Spiritualists' National Union. It is now known as Arthur Findlay College, a college of 'Spiritualism and Psychic Sciences'.

Our copy of the book is in good condition, protected by a good (unclipped) dust jacket which shows only minor signs of wear (just one 1.5 cm tear at the top of the back flap), and is generally clean and unmarked. The book itself is bound in bright blue cloth with the title etc in faded gilt letters on the spine and very few signs of wear externally. Inside, the binding is firm, and all pages are clean and bright.
