(8), ccxlv (1)pp. Blue-green faux morocco with gilt-lettered red leather label on front cover, spine lettered in gilt. Blue endpapers. Frontispiece. Publisher's device on title page. Though the title page calls for color plates, the plates in this edition are reproduced in black & white (and include the 2 folding plates). The illustrations are by J. Augustus Knapp. "To meet the continued demand for the text, the book was reprinted in reduced format, with the illustrations in black and white, and there have been fifteen printings of the smaller edition... Numerous volumes have been written as commentaries upon the secret systems of philosophy existing in the ancient world, but the ageless truths of life, like many of the earth's greatest thinkers, have usually been clothed in shabby garments. The present work is an attempt to supply a tome worthy of those seers and sages whose thoughts are the substance of its pages." (Preface). Contains list of plates and list of illustrations in the text at front, and an extensive bibliography and index at rear. Very light wear to Binding. Smallcircular stain from removal of sticker on front free endpaper. Very good. Item #50490
