"Intention and Survival" pdf book by T.G. Hamilton

Thomas Glendenning Hamilton (November 27, 1873 – April 7, 1935) was a Canadian doctor, school board trustee and member of the Manitoba legislature. He was also a Spiritualist and is best known for the thousands of photographs he took during séances held in his home in Winnipeg in the early 1900s. His wife, Lillian May Hamilton, and his daughter, Margaret Hamilton Bach, were co-researchers and continued this enquiry into life after death after he died.

INTENTION AND SURVIVAL was published in 1942, seven years after Dr. Hamilton's death at the early age of sixty-one. It was based largely on addresses and articles he had written, and contains a wealth of photos of spirit materialization events. It also has transcripts of certain seances.

Out of print and very hard to find, this is a valuable and rare book worth reading. I'm fortunate enough to actually have a hardbound copy of it, much to my surprise, not realizing it was in my collection until recently.
