The Ghost ManuscriptI enjoy reading these manuscripts from the early 20th century. This one has a lot of chalk and slate work that a mentalist could adapt to create some interesting effects today. The photos are clear, and the book has been retyped, so there is no problem reading the text. The editor, Marko, has done a great job identifying the photos; if the instructions are unclear, he inserts a note. Following the slate work, the book explains the techniques used by the mediums in the 1920s. The technique descriptions are a little vague, but they will be useful for those curious about the methods or for re-creating a seance today. There are good instructions for constructing a spirit cabinet to use some of the methods previously described in the book. For those curious about this stuff, the price is reasonable. There is an appendix written by Marko that offers additional explanations.
