With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Science of Being, Fersen, Eugene
1 Fersen, Eugene Science of Being
New York J. F. Tapley Co. 1923 First edition Faux Alligator Very Good 
New Age philosophy, lesson plan and elaborate spiritual therapy before there was a "New Age", all built on the notion of a Universal Life Energy. 8vo. 17.5 by 10.5 cm. 329, [2] pp. Striking illustrations and letter devices throughout the text, with gilt used generously to heighten both. Also, the swastika is an omnipresent symbol, but here it predates the appropriation of the symbol by the Nazis and has nothing to do with that movement. Eugene Fersen was born Baron Eugene Fersen to a Russian Grand Duchess, according to a website that seeks to promote his ideas. He had developed his Science of Being, the ideas expounded upon in this book, by 1906. After being investigated by the Justice Department for some years for alleged radicalism, he managed to become a U.S. citizen in 1923. According to the same website, he was a much sought-after lecturer for the rest of his life, and an influence on Rudolf Steiner. He died in 1956. Book condition: edge fraying of silk endpapers. Rubbing of faux alligator surface along edges and at spine extremities. Edge roughness to a prelim blank leaf. Handwriting of prior owner, in part, handsomely done, on prelim blank leaf. A few leaves with flattened creases from prior dog-earing. Overall, clean and an appealing copy.
