Description

New York: D. M. Bennett, Liberal and Scientific Publishing House, 1880, two volumes, thick 8vo, publ's gilt lettered brown cloth, 835+957pp, portrait frontis in each volume, margins lightly browning in volume two, one ep torn, covers just a little rubbed but a very good sound set. Bennett was a freethinker in the tradition of The Truth Seeker school. The aim here is to show the universality of sophisticated religious beliefs beyond the claim of Christianity. In his preface he makes clear his hatred for his "Christian enemies" who he blames for his imprisonment. In case that is not obvious to the reader he has printed on the title page of each volume the following: "Written in prison while serving out a sentence of thirteen months in the Albany Penitentiary, nominally for sending through the U.S. mails a pamphlet by E. H. Heywood on the subject of Marriage and the Relations of the Sexes, but really for being an Infidel editor and publisher." The work is very rare. See the entry in Olcott's Old Diary Leaves, vol.2, p. 327.

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

"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."

Churton, Tobias
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.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
