Product description

Third issue 1909, revised and enlarged. Maroon cloth hard covers, blind stamped at the top of the front board, gilt titles on the front and the spine. The spine is slightly faded and it is bumped at the top and base. Boards have light edge wear, corner wear, lower rear corner is bumped, and also have a few superficial marks. Top edge is gilt. The maroon pastedowns and first & last endpapers appear to be replacements but have been skilfully inserted. Text block pages are very lightly tanned. No inscriptions and binding remains tight. Introduction by Arthur Edward Waite, and translated, with annotations, by Isabelle de Steiger. At the end is a 50 page List of Works by the publisher dated October 1911. This book is a classic work of Christian mysticism and mystery, an esoteric work which was written during the halcyon days of the Enlightenment, shortly after the French revolution. It is written in six Letters followed by Notes to each Letter by the translator and finally four Appendices. A very influential work on the early Order of the Golden Dawn. One of the appendices is Brodie-Innes' original preface to the first English edition.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
