The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
The Perfume of Egypt And Other Weird Stories
Description

Foreword

The Stories told in this book happen to be true of course I do not for a moment expect the ordinary reader to believe that, and I shall be perfectly satisfied if I succeed if I succeed in shilling away for him the tedium of a railway journey, or if I can add for him a touch of pleasure to a comfortable evening before the fire or a lazy afternoon on the river.

For the few whose interest in these subjects is mot merely superficial, I may add that some of the events related and personal experiences of my own, and that the others are reproduced exactly as they were told to me by persons in whose veracity I have every confidence. In every case, except those of 'Jagannath' and 'The Baron's Room', I myself have heard the story directly from the person principally concerned in it, so that there is no place her for the subtle alterations which are inevitably introduced into tales that have passed through many hands. These things happened. And although it may be difficult for one who has made no study of the subject to believe them, those who are familiar with the literature of the occult will readily be able to parallel most of these occurrences.

I have written other and more serious books in which such things as these are scientifically explained; in this volume my only desire is to help my readers to pass pleasantly a few hours of leisure time.

Back of the book

The author of this book, C. W. Leadbeater was a clairvoyant whose range of experience of occult phenomena and unusual happenings was extraordinary. The Perfume of Egypt is a collection of 'weird stories', mostly about ghosts, which is both fascinating and informative, because they represent either personally experiences of the author or what he had heard directly from authentic sources. Readers will find this collection pleasurable and very entertaining.

Mr. Leadbeater himself brings to attention in his Foreword that in other more serious books he has given scientific explanations for the apparently fantastic stories about ghosts and other occult phenomena.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
