Edinburgh: Andrew Elliot, 1892. First Edition. Softcover. Tall octavo. Stapled in original printed paper wrappers, illustrated. 16pp. According to Dr. R. A. Gilbert "many of the members" of the producers of this volume - the Scottish Lodge of the Theosophical Society - "were also members of the Amen-Ra Temple" of the Golden Dawn. Those whose identities we know include Isabelle de Steiger, William Peck (the Golden Dawn Astronomer for Edinburgh, who would succeed Brodie-Innes as Imperator of Amen-Ra temple after the former broke with, Mathers), and of course the editor of this journal, John William Brodie-Innes (1848-1923). Brodie-Innes had a long association with the Golden Dawn, joining the Order in 1890, founding Amen-Ra Temple which he headed until it's closure, and then being involved with both the Stella Matutina and the Alpha et Omega, before eventually returning to the fold of Mathers, whose group he led jointly with Moina Mathers, from the time of her husband's death in 1918 up until his own death in 1923. Brodie-Innes was also President of the Scottish Lodge of the Theosophical Society from the late 1880s onward, and edited and contributed regularly to its papers. This issue contains four essays: "The Scottish Lodge - A Retrospect and a Prospect" (Anonymous, but probably by J. W. Brodie Innes), "Thought Transference - An Attempted Explanation" by "M.D" (identity unknown), "How do we know there is an Ether?" (an abstract of an anonymously presented paper) and "A Scottish Lodge Discussion on the Atom" (one pages series of questions and answers, authors unknown). Staple rusty and wrappers a little darkened, light foxing to extreme edges. Still a tight, clean VG+ copy. Item #37172
