The People of the Secret

WAS £40.00 £20.00

Product description

The book explores the hypothesis that there is a hierarchy of Intelligences, only the lowest level of which makes physical contact with mankind, and that both the process and its Agents may be recognisable. Black cloth boards with gilt titling and decoration to the spine. Light crushing to the head and tail of the spine, and a small nick to the rear upper edge, but the boards are otherwise near fine. The pages are age toned, with some light foxing to the end papers, front prelims. and title page, and page edges.There are closed tears to the upper edges of pages 61/62, 63/64 and 65/66 (the tears are no longer than 12mm), and small turn-downs to the upper corners of pages 134-146. The dust jacket is generally a bit grubby, with an 8 mm closed tear to the rear upper edge, and the remnants of a small price sticker on the rear, some light edge wear and foxing to the verso. Overall the book is in good condition.
