London: William Rider, 1920. First US Edition. Softcover. Large octavo. (viii adverts) 66pp. (xii adverts) Printed Blue paper wrappers. B/w illustrations. A single issue of "The Occult Review", which for the best part of 40 years, starting in 1905, was the most significant occult journal in the English-speaking world, attracting contributions by almost every significant author in the field. This US edition of "The Occult Review" has blue wrappers, and the price on the front cover is given in cents as well as shillings. The US edition appeared exactly one month after the British, so the contents of this issue as the same as the December, 1919 British issue. Contents: Notes of the Month - on Dean Inge, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Alan Leo - His Life & Work by The Editor; The Night Rain (poetry) by Jessie E. P. Foreland; The Serpent Symbol in Genesis - A Suggested Meaning by James S Forrester-Brown; Serbian Christmas Customs by F. Foster; Ella Wheeler Wilcox: Poetess & Spiritualist by Isabel Ramsay; Some Ghost & Demon Stories by Philip Redmond; The World Mother by Harry J Strutton; Reviews, including some written by Meredith Starr and one by Arthur Edward Waite; Correspondence, etc. Paper spine chipped away, rear cover detached and heavily chipped, final leaf heavily chipped, cheap paper toned, significant chips to margins of last couple of leaves (not affecting text). A typically rather shabby copy of this fragile publication. As is. Item #66279
