James Johnson Morse is regarded as one of Spiritualism' finest trance mediums. This 2009 expanded volume brings together six documents either by Morse himself or the 'Spirit Control' Tien Sien Tie.

The major part of this collection is the book "Practical Occultism" (1888), in which the whole field of mediumship is surveyed through a series of trance lectures. His 'spirit control' reveals a profound wisdom, not only in his analysis of mediumship and all its implications, but in his penetrating, spontaneous answers to questions.

This edition includes:

Practical Occultism - 1888
A Spirit Interviewed - 1894
Spirit Life and Labour - 1909
Physical Phenomena as a Basis for a Spiritual Religion - 1912
The Modern Hell - 1913
The Enigma of Death - 1915
