HOUDINIíS BOOK

The New York Times Book Review:

A Magician Among the SpiritsMy book, “A Magician Among the Spirits” recently published, was printed while I was away from New York. In its compilation, through an accident, a portion of my manuscript was omitted and an opinion of my own which followed the omitted material was attributed to Mrs. Margaret Deland. I have at all times been particularly anxious that my book should be as accurate in all respects as is humanly possible, and I regret the accident above referred to, which was occasioned through no fault of my own. The opinion above referred to was an expression of my doubt as to the scientific value of evidence submitted by Sir Oliver Lodge regarding specific cases of mental telepathy. The accident was first discovered when Mrs. Deland advised Messrs. Harper & Brothers, my publishers, that her opinion was different from my own.
