HAYNES Renee  The Hidden Springs An Enquiry into Extra-sensory Perception
VG VG $12 C/C Hollis & Carter 1961 first edition cloth, 264pp + plates. Willed and spontaneous telepathy, time displacement, telekinesis, poltergeists, levitation, dowsing, egg-sexing, faith-healing, magic, stigmatization, bird-migration, the "Queen's weather" - these are among the fascinating and controversial phenomena discussed in this book. Yet although her primary purpose is to evaluate and interpret what is known and what may be known about extra-sensory perception by scientific methods, Renee Haynes also writes a survey that is deeply personal whether she is discussing the psi-factor in human consciousness, the effects of mescalin or the welcome given to St Hugh of Lincoln by his swan. Her careful sifting of the evidence drawn from what has previously been discounted as legend and from the investigation of primitive peoples by modern anthropologists, together with the practice of Oriental religious systems, makes The Hidden Springs a book that will hold attention and provoke discussion among a wide audience whether its interests lie in the behaviour of white ants, the connection between the Rorschach Test and Etruscan divination or Mesmer's Tub and the Faraday Cage.

MENGHI Girolamo translated by Gaetano Paxia 
The Devil's Scourge

Exorcism During the Italian Renaissance. Even during the height of the Renaissance, people believed in demonic possession. Only holy men held the power to do battle with the evil spirits. Here is the complete English translation of Menghi's Flagellum daemonum and a concise history of demonology in Europe during the Sixteenth Century. Containing accounts of seven exorcisms, Menghi's manual and Paxia's commentary describe the signs of demonic possession and those people who are the most vulnerable. Paxia reveals Menghi's life in detail including his method for exorcising people and what objects he used during the ceremony. Paxia also investigates how the early church first got involved in exorcism and how its view of the devil has changed over the centuries. ISBN157863265X
