    Interesting exploration of supernatural stuff

    This turn-of-the-century book attempts to explain historical examples of ghostly phenomena with an early-20th century understanding of science and "psychical research". Heavy on the belief in mesmerism and telepathy. Interesting more from a scholarly standpoint than a spooktacular one.
