Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
8vo, pp. ; plain text illustrations, some photographic, throughout; original pictorial staplebound self-wrappers; fine. Publisher's catalogue featuring a book that apparently never made it to print (no copies located in OCLC as of May, 2014). The firm, advertised as "Sellers of Occult and Spiritual Books," also promotes here crystal balls, hypnosis ("Now An Established Fact As Shown Above By One Of Dr. de Laurence's Students" [who is totally hypnotising a group of men who are definitely not faking it for the photographer, even though that one guy is definitely looking at the camera]). Temple incense, rings, pens, talisman cases, wholesale diamond jewelry, watches, silver polish, and (occult?) tooth powder also for sale. Because how can one "Know Thyself" with a mouth full of cavities?
Arrangement follows the order of the original Excel inventory.
