Book ID: 10595, 10595
ALCHEMY. Comprehensive Bibliography of the Manly P. Hall Collection Of Books And Manuscripts. Including Related Material On Rosicrucianism And The Writings Of Jacob Boehme. Introduction by Manly P. Hall, cataloging, tetc, and editing by R. C. Hogart. Philosophical Research Society, 1986, quarto, 16+314pp, eight full page color plates, hundres of B & W plates, very lightly used, cloth a bit marked, else vg+. This large handsome volume, bound in fine red and manila cloth with gilt title and gilt cross on front cover, contains detailed information on the oldest portion of the collection housed at the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles, the finest occult library open to the public in America, but whose rarest books, mostly the copies in this catalogue, were sold to the Getty Library. 164 books and 245 manuscripts are described at length with very full collations, history, provenance, etc., most with long annotations regarding their importance and place in the lineage of alchemic philosophy and investigations. These annotations are anonymously written by Bennett Gilbert, a Los Angeles rare book dealer. They reflect the interests of bibliographers, dealers and collectors and are unusually detailed, with Gilbert often going to considerable pains to extract an interesting episode in publishing history or track down an elusive citation. 1,000 copies printed. Highly recommended. Belongs next to the works of Mellon, Gilly, Ferguson, Gardner, and Duveen.
