’Without doubt one of the most gripping and important books I’ve ever read. Don’t bother reading other books cut to the chase read this one.’ Claire Palmer Editor International Times 2015
After this brief introduction the following text, apart from the addition of the footnotes and the appendix, is an exact reprint of a book that I found in the second hand market under Black Friars Bridge in London in 2012. Originally published in 1913 by Necromancer, a small English publishing house that has since vanished, it seems to have only had a limited release as after much extensive searching, I have not been able to find another copy anywhere.
There are several reasons I have decided to republish the book. Mainly because it is a fantastic adventure story written in a surprisingly modern way that I feel the contemporary reader will relish. But also because when I checked the story’s details on the internet to my astonishment many of them, however unbelievable, were backed up by existing records or so close that it was impossible to think that they could all be coincidence. Hence the addition of the footnotes so that you can see for yourself.
If this extraordinary tale is true it would throw a completely new light on to what is already a remarkable period of Bavarian and World history. I’m sure you’ll find it fascinating especially if you have a laptop at your disposal and use the website addresses listed in the appendix.
I hope you enjoy researching the background of this adventure as much as I did and, of course, be thrilled by the truly amazing story itself. E. Harrison 2015
