Anthony Borgia Set [Spiritualism]
Three books sold together, by Anthony Borgia: Life in the World Unseen, More About Life in the World Unseen and Here and Hereafter. Borgia was a medium active in the 1950s and 1960s, who transcribed the thoughts of a deceased priest and author whom he had known in life, Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), son of a former Archbishop of Canterbury, Edward White Benson. Benson's spirit spoke to Borgia, and the clairaudient Borgia wrote down Benson's account of what the world of the afterlife is like. The afterworld, according to this account, is like a rosy version of this mortal plane: it includes rest homes, universities, gardens, children's playgrounds, and even professional pursuits. These three books make a handsome set of a significan classic of mid-20th century spiritualism.
