CHAMBERS'S CYCLOPEDIA OF ENGLISH LITERATURE. A History, Critical and Biographical, of British Author (Used)
by Chambers, R, Editor.
Book ID: 10865, 10865
Boston: Gould & Lincoln 1853, two volumes, large heavy 8vo, pub's cloth, 671+703pp, woodcuts and plates throughout. This earlier edition (15th thousands") has steel engravings not seen in many later editions. A good copy, strong and sturdy but the spine ends have a few chips (one about half-an-inch square), and the back cover of the second volume is warped and stained from heavy damp exposure. On the front fly is the signature of the famous American book collector Arnold Green, and in his hand "from his mother" and dated 1854. This must have been one of his early books as his collection (dubbed at the time as "the best that this country has seen" by the NYT) was put on the market by Bangs & Brothers, with a catalog written by Green, in 1901. His collection was focused on the transcendentalists and it was massive. To this day his books can be found in used and rare book shops, always with his signature or bookplate.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
