Obsession and possession by spirits both good and evil in Oriental and occidental spiritualism and occultism among primitive races  In antiquity, the middle ages, and modern times, Oesterreich, Traugott Konstantin
147 Oesterreich, Traugott Konstantin Obsession and possession by spirits both good and evil in Oriental and occidental spiritualism and occultism among primitive races In antiquity, the middle ages, and modern times
Chicago, IL de Laurence Co 1935 American Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Blue cover with gold print. Cover shows some wear and inside has some yellowing. Contents clean. A rare and sought after reference on Obsession and Possession. This American edition was prepared for publication by L.W. de Laurence. A recent historical view of Obsession from the web is: This belief may be found in the earliest records of human history—in the ancient magic rites and in the pronouncements often used as charms against and for the exorcism of these invading influences. The oldest literary remains from India, Greece, and Rome are filled with references to possession. While there are passing references to demons and demon obsession or possession in sacred Jewish writings—such as the case of Saul, who was "troubled with an evil spirit from God" only to be relieved by the music of David's harp (1 Sam. 16:14-16)—it is with the Christian movement that a major emphasis on spirit possession emerges. Jesus regularly healed by casting possessing spirits out of the mentally ill. Crucial to later understanding of possessing spirits in the Western tradition are incidents such as Jesus' driving the legion of demons into the swine (thus demonstrating their existence apart from the psychology of the possessed individual) and Paul's driving out of the divining spirit who possessed a young woman of Thyatira (thus associating spirit possession with fortune-telling) Scarce if not Rare. . ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 400 pages

Yellow cover with black print. This synopsis contains a listing by generation with name, marriage dates, birth and death dates. There is also an extensive index of names other than Pearl.

Pearl, James Smith Pearl, John Alexander Pearl, Hannah Jane Pearl, Malinda (Pearl) Keeney, Isabella Caroline (Pearl) Kirk, Elizabeth Ann (Pearl) Van Winkle, Hannah R. Pearl, Minerva Pearl, Mary (Pearl) Robinett, William Henry Pearl, Silas Harrison Pearl, Redman Pearl, Sherman H. Pearl, Florence James Alexander Pearl was born according to his own family Bible on 17 April 1807 in probably Knox County, Ohio, USA. His most probable parents according to the Pearl Family Website are Alexander Perrill (c. 1770-c.1814) and Grace Beaumont (c. 1770-c. 1815) who were married on 29 May 1791 in Frederick, Maryland. Since he was orphaned at such an early age, it is difficult to know for certain that these were his parents, but there is fairly good evidence. The name as his father used it was Perrill. James used Pearl. There were many Perrill families in Maryland. ; 1807-1897; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 41 pages
