This classic account of paranormal experience has not received the attention it deserves. It is one of the most astonishing eyewitness accounts of paranormal events ever written. The distinguished author accompanied the famous psychic medium Daniel Dunglas Home as he traveled about in various homes of high society. The author records frequent observations of events such as tables and chairs mysteriously moving by themselves, tables being levitated, the appearance of an apparition (page 28), frequent mysterious raps, and frequent mysterious gushes of cold air. Other weirdness includes the mysterious elongation of Home's arms by 4 or 5 inches (page 146), and Home's inexplicable ability to hold a red-hot coal in his hands without injury (page 147).
