A well-known attack on contemporary Spiritualism, densely (even impenetrably) allusive and making extensive reference to classical writings on commerce with the spirits and various ancient mysteries; as is often the case with such writing, the obscurity and detail of his arguments mean Marsh’s work has latterly been appropriated to support Spiritualist and Theosophist ideas.
