OLIVER LODGE The British physicist who began investigating the possibly of life after death pens a quote on the sheet of paper Autograph Quotation Signed: "Oliver Lodge 88", 1p, 3½x3½. In full: "Newquay 1 Aug 1939 'The best is yet to be'". Oliver Lodge was 88-years-old when he signed this sheet of paper. British physicist Oliver Lodge (1851-1940) investigated lightning, electro-magnetic waves, and wireless telegraphy. He demonstrated the transmission of radio waves in 1894, a year before Marconi, and patented a device-the "Lodge Igniter"-for generating sparks in an internal combustion engine. He wrote dozens of books and articles. Lodge also pursued psychical research believing it was possible to communicate with the dead. He died on June 17, 1920, but had promised to attempt communication from the afterlife. Fragile. Blank left portion irregularly torn, with paper loss resulting. Staining throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
