Item specifics

Seller Notes: see description
Binding: Hardcover Special Attributes: 1st Edition, Illustrated
Subject: Religion & Spirituality Year Printed: 1905
Topic: Occult

Auction for first edition of The Guiding Star - 1905 Book of Spiritualist séances complete with descriptions of spirit manifestations from séance cabinets with trumpets, medium’s direct experiences and dialogue with various spirits. 427 pgs indexed. 6” x 9” x 1 ½”. 

Highlights - Numerous spirit portraits - The book has beautiful full pg. color plates and b+w plates of the various spirits portraits, spirit guides, spirit dog and Higher beings, masters, teachers and the ubiquitous spirit Indian named Loose Moccasin.  There were created by the spirit artist who witnessed them first hand during the séances of the “Star Circle Band of Spirits” aka the group who held the séances and their collaborators from the spirit side of life. 

Unique explanations about how the séances were held make this book unique. There is an unusual mash-up of cabinet séances’ phenomenon, description of spirits as they emerge from the cabinet and write their messages on blank paper by waving their hand over the page OR with typewriting!! Numerous messages are labeled typewritten message (by the Spirit) 

The entire book is direct descriptive narration and reports of actual séance materialization, questions, answers and lots of Famous Spirits show up for the séances. There are messages from Thomas Paine, entire section written by Michael Faraday. Queen Victoria materializes and expresses her gratitude for Spiritualism during her lifetime. 

There are a series of directly transcribed séance reports with accompanying phenomenon, who appeared from the cabinet, trumpets, typewriting etc described, from the, “Intellectual Séances” with medium W.W. Aber, Spring Hill, Kansas as well as Phenomenon Séances. The Intellectual séances explain how the magnetic and electrical psychic energy fields work with the medium and medium in training, the occupations in the spirit world, spirit world healing in spirit hospitals.

   Topics- dematerialization, gray matter, lower spheres, narcotics, Etherium, Spirits work on Sundays and all other days, all sorts of phenomenon explained, Loose Moccasin the Red Indian spirit, telegraphy, teleology, plus the reports of Wesley on this writing, manifestation, management of the mediums, phenomena, spiritual conditions, hoarding and criminals. 

  A number of Spirit Groups aka Bands appear - The Justice Seekers are explained (this is band of spirits who abhor the death penalty), the Purity Band, the Brave Hearts and the portrait of Chan Wo their Chinese leader who wishes to Learn Spiritualism, ( see scan for his spirit portrait) & the Band of Hope teach how to construct a séance cabinet. 

Rare first edition- much more contained in this volume than I can describe here. First few pages detached, covers have visible wear, edge wear, corner wear, spine surface wear, remaining pages good binding, few pgs with stains, warps, mold, rips or in-writing.
