The Unity of Religious Ideals.

London: The Sufi Movement [ The Camelot Press, Ltd ], ND [ 1926 ? ]. First Edition. Hardcover. Small octavo. xiv + 325pp, ipp advert. Brown textured cloth, gilt titling to spine and upper board. Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882 –1927) founder of The Sufi Order in the West in 1914 (London) and a teacher of Universal Sufism who wrote extensively on the subject of Sufism for Western readers. In this work Khan includes subject headings: Religion; The God-Ideal; The Spiritual Hierarchy,The Spirit of Guidance, Prophets and Religions (Rama, Krishna, Buddha, Abraham, Moses, Zarathustra, Sufi, Jesus, Mohammed, etc..), The Message and the Sufi Movement. Unfortunately the publishers did not specify early printings of this work. It was first published in 1915, and this is without doubt an early printing, probably from no later than 1926, but we cannot say with certainty. Spine slightly canted, a little light shelfwear, gilt titling somewhat dulled. Top edge, endpapers and first & last leaves darkened and foxed. Small ink line on bottom of fore-edge. Some scattered random pencil notes and underlining. Overall a tight VG copy. No dust jacket. Item #69604
