Anna Kingsford: Her Life, Letters, Diary and Work ( Two Volume Set ).

London: John M. Watkins, 1913. Third Edition, Revised. Hardcovers. Octavos. Two volumes. Volume I: xxiv + 442pp & Volume II: x + 466pp. Navy cloth gilt-lettered on spines, blind rules to upper board, b&w frontisportraits w/ tissue guards, b&w plates, fold-out plate, top edge gilt, index. The biography of Anna Bonus Kingsford (1846 - 1888) by her colleague Edward Maitland. Kingsford was one of the first women to work as a physician in England, and a passionate feminist, vegetarian, and anti-vivisectionist. She founded the Hermetic Society, and for a time was President of the Theosophical Society, although she espoused her own form of Christian mysticism and esotericism, drawn from insights that she claimed to have received both in trance and through dreams. This biography of her life by Edward Maitland was published following her death and this is the third edition with a new preface by Samuel Hopgood Hart and index. Some light ordinary shelf wear, spine ends and corners lightly bruised rubbed, page edges browned, page edges a bit darkened and foxed, pages lightly toned but still a tight, bright and unmarked VG+ set - probably about as close as fine as it would be possible to get for books of this vintage (no dust jackets). Scarce. Item #66231
