  • Price: £ 40

Rider and Company. First edition, fifth impression. No date but circa 1943. 

Very Good condition hardback book. Unusually clean and bright for its age.  The book has its original dustjacket which is complete but has some edge wear and chipping. It does look smart in it’s protective cover.

From the sleeve notes:
In this book Lord Dowding, whose name will be remembered in connection with the Battle of Britain, puts forward a strong case for life after death.

The author presents the subject attractively in a vigorous and fluent style – there are no dreary chapters of analysis, full of meaningless phraseology – the book is written in a clear and concise manner, which can be comprehended and will convince all who read it.

Dowding is no sentimentalist; he examines his facts soberly and critically from all angles; his plea for a better understanding of spiritualism will be greeted with enthusiasm by spiritualists all over the world and is bound to be regarded as a valuable asset to the spiritualistic cause. No one can question the deep sincerity with which this work has been carried out. Having in mind the many instances of survival after death on the battlefield recorded through various channels, Lord Dowding has satisfied himself that these records should be made known to the public as widely as possible, believing that they carry with them the hall-mark of truth.

In the record of Lord Dowding s career lies the assurance that he is a practical man not likely to be led astray by specious theories, or to harbour delusions when confronted by hard facts.

An interesting book written by a man of science and pragmatism who had the courage to publicly express his convictions…..
