The Credo of Christendom and Other Essays on Esoteric Christianity; (and Some Letters by Edward Maitland )

London: John M. Watkins, 1916. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. viii + 256pp (+iipp adverts). Original maroon cloth. Gilt titling to spine, blind stamped rules to margins of boards. Frontispiece with tissue guard, two diagrams in text. Anna Bonus Kingsford (1846 - 1888), was one of the first women to work as a physician in England, and a passionate feminist, vegetarian, and anti-vivisectionist. She was the founder of the Hermetic Society, and, for a time, President of the Theosophical Society, although she espoused her own form of Christian mysticism and esotericism, drawn from insights that she claimed to have received both in trance and through dreams. The present book comprises a lengthy biographical essay, followed by a series of lectures, letters, and articles by Kingsford, many of which appear to have been printed in the esoteric journal 'Light,' in the late nineteenth century. A few light marks to cloth, spine ends gently bruised. Top edge dusty, faint foxing to page edges, Esoteric-themed bookplate to front pastedown, light tonin to pages. Otherwise tight, unmarked VG+ copy. Item #33761
