The names of Hebrew prophets and ancient sages, claimed by some of his "Controls," are here divulged for the first time, and their identity discussed after research at the British Museum and elsewhere. The author has had access to the original manuscripts of the automatic script and the séance records, and has also received help from two surviving members of the Stainton Moses "circle." - from the publisher's laid in card.
