Pyramidology - Four Volumes

£100.00

Product description

Four volumes in the series 'Pyramidology' all originally published between 1957 and 1972. All have blue cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the fronts and spines. In this collection, Book I is fourth edition 1970, Book II appears to be first edition 1962, Book III appears to be first edition 1966 and Book IV is first edition 1972. Book I is clean and tight but has an owner name and address stamp on the front pastedown, and on pages 33, 46 and 47 there is a small amount of yellow highlighting. Book II is a little bumped at the top of the spine, has an old sellotape mark on the front pastedown and a small gift inscription on the first free endpaper. Book III is dedicated and signed by the author on the front pastedown, dated 1974. Book IV has the rubber stamped name and address on the front pastedown. Apart from the highlighting on three pages of book I the remainder of the text is clean and unmarked. A very sound and scarce set. The author was the founder of the Institute of Pyramidology; these four large volumes were devoted to establishing a link between the measurements of the pyramids of Egypt and theories about the Bible and the Lost Tribes of Israel. Rutherford belonged to a sect known as the British Israelites, whose origins went back to the 17th century. Revived in 1864, the theory was that the West European races, and the British in particular, are descendants of the ten tribes of Israel exiled by the Assyrians.

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.
