New York, NY: Lucis Publishing Company, 1945. Second Edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. One volume only (of two). xxvi + 430pp. Flexible blue cloth boards 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. Spine ends somewhat worn, spine rubbed, bumps to corners of boards, top-edge lightly browned, otherwise a solid, internally-clean near-VG copy (no dust jacket). Item #45259
