Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from D. D. Home: His Life and Mission I have felt it to be an honour to be allowed to edit this new Edition of the Life of D. D. Home. The book is so vital that it went much against the grain to excise any part of it, but our first task is to make it easy for the public to get the information which they need, and in its original form the book was a little difficult on account of occasional redundancy and repetition. This I have endeavoured to correct, but I foresee the time when the full text will be restored and I censured for having tampered with what is a very valuable record. Meanwhile this shorter version gives the reader all that is essential. Home has himself left three books to the world, the first and second series of Incidents of my Life and Lights and Shadows of Spiritualism. The latter contains the most earnest protest against the abuse either of mediumship or of Spiritualism which the most conservative critic could utter. Personally I am of opinion that Home took a somewhat narrow view of mediumship, failing to realise its protean aspects, so that when he found any which differed from his own he was inclined to put it down to bad observation or to fraud. At the same time he sets us an example of that alert and critical intelligence which every spiritualist should cultivate. In Incidents of my Life will be found a most interesting autobiography including his controversy with Sir David Brewster from which the man of Science emerged so badly. Very especially the second series is commended to the student of Home, because in it will be found all the actual papers dealing with the Home-Lyon lawsuit, showing conclusively how honourable was the action of Home, in spite of the severe remarks by Lord Gifford, which were the result of his own ignorance and prejudice.

Book Description White Crow Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Julie de Gloumeline, aka Madam Home, was Daniel Dunglas Home s second wife; they were married in 1871. In 1877 Madam Home s memoirs of his life, D.D. Home: His Life His Mission, were published. D D Home s letters and diaries were a Who s Who of 19th Century society. His autobiography, Incidents in My Life - Part One which was published in 1863, detailed his public life, his psychic life, and some would argue, his tragic personal life, including his struggle with TB as well as the death of his wife Alexandria de Kroll and their son Greigore. Many of the amazing accounts in Incidents of my Life left out names in order to protect friends from ridicule. In Madam Home s book she reveals many of the names and stated: The fact that many of these names are now for the first time published, will prove to what degree Home carried his consideration for others, suppressing their names in order to spare them from ignorant abuse, and tranquilly encountering the host of calumnies that were directed against him in consequence. D.D. Home has been called The Greatest Physical Medium in History . He has been accused of fraud by skeptics but never found to be anything but genuine by anyone who studied him seriously while he was alive. The list of people who sat with Home is impressive. Count Alexis Tolstoy, cousin of Leo Tolstoy, Alexander Dumas, Lady Shelly, Sir Francis Galton, James M. Gully, an eminent doctor whose clients included Charles Darwin, Sir William Crookes; President of the Royal Society, and the Emperor Napoleon III and the French royal court. During one conversation, the Duke de Morny told the Emperor that he felt it a duty to contradict the report that the Emperor believed in spiritualism. The Emperor replied: Quite right, but you may add when you speak on the subject again that there is a difference between believing a thing and having proof of it, and that I am certain of what I have seen. Napoleon later stated Whoever says that Home is a charlatan is a liar. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781907355165
