The Riddle of the Sphinx. A Key to the Mysteries and a Synthesis of Philosophy.

Philadelphia, PA: David McKay, 1915. First edition. Hardcover. Small octavo. iv + 88pp. Original red cloth with gilt titling, b&w illustrations and diagrams. The first edition of this unusual work which synthesizes Cabala, Buddhism, Rosicrucianism, Science, Theology and Eastern philosophies with the aim of bridging "the apparent chasm between the physical science and occult philosophy ..." Very light bruising to spine ends and slight darkening to cloth, a bit of light browning to page edges and endpapers - otherwise a lovely unmarked VG+ copy in a fair example of the scarce dust jacket. (Dust jacket is darkenened and chafed at all edges, about a third of the spine is missing, and it is heavily reinforced on the reverse. Now protected in mylar cover). Item #66504
