A "Secret Doctrine" Digest

£39.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In 1885 Helena Blavatsky returned to London and published her book Secret Doctrine which was, she claimed, a distillation of the teaching of some Tibetan manuscripts. A noted spiritualist she had founded Theosophy as a cult which became very influential in the spiritually enlightened of Europe, India and America.
As Wood states in his Preface ” people shy away at the sight of the huge tomes of The Secret Doctrine” and thus he was persuaded to present a synopsis in the present volume. As he considered the original volume as “unquestionably the greatest source book in the world”. it is clear that he was well qualified for his task.
Theosophical Publishing House hardback in the original red cloth with no DJ. The binding is good although the spine edges are bumped. There is tanning and foxing to page edges and front and back end pages. A vendor’s label is on the inside of the front cover and a label has been removed on the facing page. Photographic portrait of Mme Blavatsky as frontispiece.
