Materialisations - Harry Boddington

Though extremely rare, materialisations is one of the most dramatically evidential forms of mediumship. In this masterly investigation into materialisations, leading Spiritualist Harry Boddington examines a range of séance room phenomena including table tilting, levitation and ectoplasm. This shimmering, malleable substance is used by the “dead” temporarily to assume physical form again. Mr Boddington tells of attending stunning séances at which a “dead” girl materialised with “clear and life-like eyes.” Along the way, he introduces readers to some of the most famous mediums and researches in Spiritualism’s history, describing the array of supernormal phenomena achieved at test sittings.
