Discipleship in the New Age. Alice A. BAILEY.

Discipleship in the New Age.

New York: Lucis Publishing Co., 1954. Reprint. Hardcover. Large octavo. xvi + 790pp. Blue cloth lettered in gilt on spine & front board. Alice Bailey (1880-1947) was born in England, but moved to America in the early twentieth century. Although she had a strong Christian upbringing, she was drawn to the Theosophical Society, joining its Esoteric Section - the secretive subgroup formed by Blavatsky for those who wanted to seriously pursue the study of the occult. Bailey eventually left the Theosophical Society, but it remained a strong influence, and she believed that the 'Spirit Guide' who had helped her since her 'teens was the same 'Koot Humi' who had communicated with the leading Theosophists. She also claimed contact with another Theosophical 'Master' 'Djwhal Khul - 'The Tibetan' who she said outlined an advanced system of esoteric teaching, which she described in many of the two dozen books she subsequently authored. Pen annotations to rear pastedown, pen underlining to text on some pages, slight chafing to spine ends, top-edge dusty, otherwise a solid near-VG copy (no dust jacket). Item #43108
