The Secret Doctrine of the Rosicrucians. Magus INCOGNITO.

The Secret Doctrine of the Rosicrucians.

Chicago, IL: Advanced Thought Publishing, 1918. First Edition. Hardcover. Small octavo. 252pp + iv adverts. Original black cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board; b&w illustrations. This is the first edition of a work published pseudonymously in 1918 which purports to reveal the secrets and doctrines of 'true' Rosicrucianism. Its pseudonymous author is said to have been threatened with legal action by AMORC for revealing the secrets of the Order - although we have been unable to verify that this indeed happened even now, more than 100 years later. Light chafing to spine edges, spine ends, and corners, a few light bumps to edges. Page edges darkened, pages evenly toned, but unmarked. Bookshop sticker and small blue mark to front pastedown. Still, a tight, clean VG copy. (no dust jacket if called for). Item #64273
