New: a page about issue 6 of Helios, 1911, the Mexican Spiritist magazine which featured news about President Elect Francisco I. Madero and the Spiritist Manual (claiming, falsely, that "Bhima" was not Madero). There is also a page with the English translation of the text on the cover; the masthead; an advertisement for the Spiritist Manual; and the first page of an article about Francisco I. Madero.
Just posted: the podcast of C.M. Mayo's talk about Madero's Spiritist Manual for the PEN / Sol Literary Magazine Reading Series in San Miguel de Allende, February 22, 2012.

Note: In this talk I mention that I had not been able to find a copy of the original Spanish edition, Manual Espírita, anywhere on-line. Shortly after I posted this podcast I found this free PDF download available from a Mexican government website. — C.M. Mayo
