THE GREAT SOUL TRIAL By John G. Fuller The Gripping Story of the Prospector who Left a Fortune to a Study of the Soul. Ex-Library Book. Copyright: 1969. No Edition stated. First Printing stated.

Pages are Intact Tight with several light soiling spots. Dustjacket is in Fair condition with some edge shelf wear, library sticker on the spine. From the Flyleaf....... This is the full story of the famous "Ghost Trial of the Century," involving serious and reputable scientists in the search for what happens to a man after death. Like scores of old-time prospectors in Arizona's Superstition Mountains, James Kidd was a loner---a quiet frugal man, mild and unobtrusive. His sudden disappearance in 1949 attracted little notice---until it was learned that the solitary old man had left an estate of nearly a quarter of a million dollars, along with a handwritten will directing the entire sum toward "research or some scientific proof of a soul of the human body which leaves at death....." Altogether, 134 individuals, organizations, and institutions paid 15 each to file a claim on Kidd's estate. In this fascinating, completely factual account, John G. Fuller tells the whole story of the incredible trial which ensued---a trial which, before it was over, involved a battalion of lawyers, a cluster of highly respected universities, several throughly reputable scientific institutions, a state board of regents, a swarm of journalists, and a large trail of camp-followers and mystics. With objectivity and a sensitive awareness of the complex issues involved, Mr. Fuller explores both the mystery of James Kidd---his seemingly impossible wealth, his consuming desire for knowledge of the human soul---and the unprecedented legal and scientific action inspired by his strange bequest. Beyond the trial itself, Mr. Fuller examines specifically and objectively the controversial issus of telepathy, clairvoyance, and possible communication with the dead.
