Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The coming of the fairies, by Arthur Conan Doyle, illustrated from photographs. Author of "The New Revelation", "The Vital Message", "Wanderings of a Spiritualist". This book contains reproductions of the famous Cottingley photographs, and gives the whole of the evidence in connection with them. The diligent reader is in a good position form a judgment upon the authenticity of the pictures. This narrative is not a special plea for that authenticity, but is simply a collection of facts the inferences from which may be accepted or rejected as the reader may think fit. The series of incidents set forth in this little volume represent either the most elaborate and ingenious hoax every played upon the public, or else they constitute an event in human history which may in the future appear to have been epoch-making in its character. Reproduction of 1922 Edition.

Biographie de l'auteur

The life of Arthur Conan Doyle illustrates the excitement and diversity of the Victorian age unlike that of any other single figure of the period. At different points in his life he was a surgeon on a whaling ship; a GP; an apprentice eye-surgeon; an unsuccessful parliamentary candidate (twice); a multi-talented sportsman; one of the inventors of cross-country skiing in Switzerland; a formidable public speaker; a campaigner against miscarriages of justice; a military strategist; a writer in a range of forms; and the head of an extraordinary family. In his autobiography, he wrote: 'I have had a life which, for variety and romance, could, I think, hardly be exceeded.' He was not wrong. But Conan Doyle was also a Victorian with a twist, a man of tensions and contradictions. He was fascinated by travel, exploration, and invention, indeed all things modern and technological; yet at the same time he was also very traditional, voicing support for values such as chivalry, duty, constancy, and honour. By the time of his death in July 1930 he was a celebrity, achieving worldwide fame and notoriety for his creation of the rationalist, scientific super-detective Sherlock Holmes; yet at the same time his later decades were taken up with his advocacy of the new religion of Spiritualism, in which he was a devoted believer. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vary good love reading arguments 14 juin 2013
Par Blackwidow442 - Publié sur

Vary nice to read. Vary cute how the girls fool so many with cut outs. Reading this book made it vary clear why so many believed the picture to be true. I'd always wondered why people were fooled. I put myself in the mind set of the 1920, thinking I have never seen Photoshop , internet or fantacy movie's. The argument were vary convincing.
The girls never told the truth until the passing of the oldest. The youngest was ask one last time about the picture's, and she told the truth that they were cut outs. She was also ask why did you keep it secret all these years she said "I was made to promise to never tell as long as we lived. Now that's she has passed there is no reason to keep it."
Now that's a true friend :)
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Forgotten Books is a publisher I'll remember to avoid 24 novembre 2013
Par Ginny Cohen - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The book is full of typographical errors and does a poor job of formatting to the point where text is confusing and it appears that some text is lost. This particular book centers upon five images which the publishers reproduced in tiny thumbnails and inserted at odd intervals throughout the book which disrupt the text. The publisher’s disclaimer at the front of the book is telling. “Forgotten Books takes the uppermost care to preserve the wording and images from the original book. However, this book has been scanned and reformatted from the original, and as such we cannot guarantee that it is free from errors or contains the full content of the original.” The publishers also say you can read the book for free online. I’d recommend reading their books for free since I regret purchasing this copy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sherlock gets it really wrong 6 novembre 2015
Par Indian Burned - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is such an odd book, considering the author.... and sad, considering why he was so interested in the subject. One should also read "The Fairy Ring" which tells the whole truth. How these two girls pulled off this obvious( at least by present day standards) hoax.. and then kept their mouths shut for 50 years is very interesting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Famous Case of Willing Belief 13 janvier 2008
Par John D. Cofield - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In 1917 two young English girls claimed to have taken photographs of fairies near the village of Cottingley in Yorkshire. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became interested in the case, and produced this book indicating his whole hearted belief in the girls and in fairies. It seems really incredible that the creator of the ultra-analytical Sherlock Holmes could have been taken in by photos which are clearly of cut out paper drawings, held together with hat pins and wearing clothing and hairstyles which are very recognizeable early twentieth century fashions. Fortunately, in this reprint edition we have an introduction by John M. Lynch, a university professor who provides a short biography of Doyle and some fascinating information on the Theosophical Movement, in which Doyle, especially after the death of his son in World War I, became interested. Doyle himself gives some interesting information about other fairy sightings and folklore, so that the book is highly diverting to read, even if one is not prepared to believe.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 The books in great condition, but I was expecting something totally different 11 août 2015

The books in great condition, but I was expecting something totally different. I was expecting a mystic in a trance like state to have studied a world of fairies, but it was not. Its about a big controversy over some girls who supposedly took a picture of fairies.
