Pre-Raphaelites in the Spirit World: The Séance Diary of William Michael Rossetti

J B Bullen, Rosalind White

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In this previously unpublished manuscript, Rossetti meticulously recorded twenty séances between 1865 and 1868. Several of the séances were conducted by famed mediums Mary Marshall and Elizabeth Guppy. Under their auspices, materializations of bright lights, showers of perfume, and flowers — specially requested by the participants — sprang forth from afterlife.
