The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
Description

Foreword

The Stories told in this book happen to be true of course I do not for a moment expect the ordinary reader to believe that, and I shall be perfectly satisfied if I succeed if I succeed in shilling away for him the tedium of a railway journey, or if I can add for him a touch of pleasure to a comfortable evening before the fire or a lazy afternoon on the river.

For the few whose interest in these subjects is mot merely superficial, I may add that some of the events related and personal experiences of my own, and that the others are reproduced exactly as they were told to me by persons in whose veracity I have every confidence. In every case, except those of 'Jagannath' and 'The Baron's Room', I myself have heard the story directly from the person principally concerned in it, so that there is no place her for the subtle alterations which are inevitably introduced into tales that have passed through many hands. These things happened. And although it may be difficult for one who has made no study of the subject to believe them, those who are familiar with the literature of the occult will readily be able to parallel most of these occurrences.

I have written other and more serious books in which such things as these are scientifically explained; in this volume my only desire is to help my readers to pass pleasantly a few hours of leisure time.

Back of the book

The author of this book, C. W. Leadbeater was a clairvoyant whose range of experience of occult phenomena and unusual happenings was extraordinary. The Perfume of Egypt is a collection of 'weird stories', mostly about ghosts, which is both fascinating and informative, because they represent either personally experiences of the author or what he had heard directly from authentic sources. Readers will find this collection pleasurable and very entertaining.

Mr. Leadbeater himself brings to attention in his Foreword that in other more serious books he has given scientific explanations for the apparently fantastic stories about ghosts and other occult phenomena.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
