Interesting a purported Biography

There is a review of this on their site
Review by: Marc Demarest on Feb. 09, 2011 : (no rating)
Not what it appears to be. It is NOT a work of biography in any sense of that term. It is in fact a reproduction of certain public lectures given by EHB in late 1865 and early 1866 in London. These are available in the public domain, at no charge.
(reviewed the day of purchase)
For those interested Marc is a very dedicated researcher who has made Emma Hardinge his major work, albeit he occasionally publishes material that may upset some of us. Emma is a very interesting figure with many strards to her life, some of which she tried to move away from when she became the UK's leading Spiritualist. It appears she may first have appeared as a young mesmeric medium in Lord Bulwer Lytton's Occult Orphic Circle pre the start of Spiritualism. In addition she was, at least, the licensee and sole contact point in regard to two rather unusual predominantly occult books Art Magic and Ghost Lands

Marcs blog is meticulously researched and well worth looking at.

Of course the December 2010 issue of Psypioneer had a terrific article by Leslie Price about Emma
