VERY RARE FIRST EDITION HARDCOVER-- olive green cloth w/ intact black decoration & gilt lettering on front cover & spine-- in GOOD PLUS Condition showing broken & detached front hinge. Rear hinge is loosened.(See below) Spine, however, is solid. No Dustjacket. INTERIOR very clean & tight. Pages show ageing. Brown endpapers.

Note: This book is complete but essentially, the text block is separating from the covers very neatly. It is usable in its current condition but is in need of repair. I hesitate to put my amateur hand to the job. This is a First Edition of a very scarce title by the British author whose other books include The Rosicrucians; The Indian Religions or Results of the Mysterious Buddhism; Ophiolatreia: An Account of the Rites and Mysteries Connected With the Origin, Rise and Development of Serpent Worship; Phallicism: Celestial & Terrestrial-Heathen & Christian & Its Connection With the Rosicrucians & the Gnostics & Its Foundation in Buddhism, and many other esoteric works.
