Description

Colby & Rich 1867 [but circa 1893], Boston, 1867. "A STELLAR KEY TO THE SUMMER LAND. Part I. Illustrated with Diagrams and Engravings of Celestial Scenery." publ's black cloth. 190+8pp, b & w plates, including frontispiece, six pages of Colby ads at back, no other parts published Davis' books are frequently found in bad condition and all of them have become scarce in the last 10 years. Occultists seem to have mostly forgotten him but he's been "discovered" in a big way by academia. Thirty years ago his books were mostly unsalable, I passed up hundreds of copies before a few scholars and librarians started to ask me about him. Now I can't find them anywhere. Librarians and dealers don't seem to understand that there were a number of late 19th century reprints by houses like Colby's where they never took the original copyright date off the colophon so they look like originals especially to those who can't tell late 19th century bindings to those of the civil war era. "Acres of Books" (of Long Beach), stamp to front paste-down, a very good to fine copy "fifth revised edition" [but in fact a reprint of the first edition].
