Description:

The Edge of the Unknown is a collection of essays and articles written by Arthur Conan Doyle between 1919 and 1930. It was first published in a single volume by John Murray in 1930. The essays and articles, initially published in magazines, were revised for the book.

A small, solid iron tank was filled with water. A man was placed inside, water completely covering him. Over this an iron lid with three hasps & staples was securely locked. The body was submerged & a clock began ticking off the seconds.

Once again, the great Harry Houdini had confounded scientists & his audience by escaping sure death! How was it possible to survive this? His friend, Arthur Conan Doyle, thought the answer might lie in spiritualism. The Edge of the Unknown presents the evidence. [Suggest a different description.]
