Quakertown, PA: Rosicrucian Foundation, ND (Copyright 1935). First Edition Thus. Hardcovers. Two volumes. Small, thick quartos. 464pp & 960pp. Original green cloth with gilt titles, etc. to spines, gilt crests of the House of Clymer on front covers, blind rules, colour and b&w illustrations. R. Swinburne Clymer's massive documentary study of the rival Rosicrucian groupings in America. Obviously partisan, but includes a wealth of information, including much on Crowley, the O.T.O., the relations with A.M.O.R.C. etc. etc. and facsimile reproductions of important documents. "Authentic and Spurious Organizations as considered and dealt with in treatises originally published and issued in monograph form, now republished, with important additions, in this permanent volume as separate Books to retain their original form, as follows: Book 1--The Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross; Book 2--The Militia - Door into the Temple; Book 3--A Challenge and the Answer; Book 4--Rosicrucian Names--Exclusive Right to Use; Book 5--An Exposé of the Imperator of AMORC; Book 6--Randolph and the Supreme Grand Dome in France--First American Grand Master of the Rosicrucians. Book 7--A Complete Answer to Lewis' White Book "D" being a Thorough Expose of his AMORC - A Spurious R.C. Order and Fraternal Swindle Operated as a Fraudulent Scheme and Family Racket." Cloth of Vol. I has a few light marks. The front board of Vol. II has a lightly faded band around the edges and a very slight (almost unnoticeable) furrow in cloth. It also has a slight scrape to the fore-edge of the text block. Lower page edges untrimmed (as with all copies) causing some slight irregularities in the pages. Overall a clean VG+ example of a set that is usually in much worse condition due to its size and weight. (no dust jackets issued). Item #61694
