The Marvels of Indian Magicians. Testimony of a Conjuror




Publications abstracted:

Harry Kellar North American Review


Magic, Spiritualism

    Concedes that 'the marvels wrought by the fakirs of India are quite inexplicable on the hypothesis of mere jugglery', and describes 'a séance in Calcutta' at which William Eglinton's 'body appeared for the time being to have become unsusceptible to gravitation'. Notes that 'Professor Kellar's experience is in curious contrast to that of Mr. Maskelyne and others'.
