[ The Revelation in the Wilderness - an Exposition of Traditional Psychology ] The Book of Signs, The Book of Battles, The Book of Stars ( 3 Volume Set with Supplements ).

Deventer, The Netherlands: N. Kluwer, 1951, 1953, 1954. First Editions. Hardcover. Large Octavos. Three hardcover volumes complete with three Supplements in wrappers. "The Book of Signs": xx + 408pp (12pp Supplement with four diagrams loosely inserted); "The Book of Battles" (xvi) + 348pp + (Supplement with 9 loose diagrams) & "The Book of Stars," (xviii) + 356pp ( 4pp Supplement with 4 diagrams numbered 11-14 loosely inserted). Cream cloth with green spine labels printed in gilt, green publisher's logo to upper boards and green top edges, indexes, b&w diagrams (as far as we can determine all called for are present although there is some eccentric numbering). Supplements in matching printed wrappers. Dr. G. H. Mees (1903 - 1955) was a Dutch student of comparative religion, who had studied at Cambridge, before gaining a doctorate at Leiden. He spent much time studying Indic religions on the sub-continent, eventually accepted Ramana Maharshi as his guru. He was apparently also acquainted with Dr. Carl G. Jung, and it was apparently partially Jung's influence - coupled with a blinding flash of personal insight - that caused him to start work on the massive study of comparative symbolism, that would become 'The Revelation in the Wilderness,' series. The set was originally in the (now-dispersed) library of the "Institute for the Comparative Study of History, Philosophy and the Sciences" founded by Fourth Way initiate John Godolphin Bennett (1897 - 1974) with the Institute's rectangular stamp on the front free endpapers and title-pages of all three volumes. Several of the boards have bumped corners, the cloth generally has a few light marks and a little discoloration, but the rear cover of "The Book of Stars" is heavily damp-marked - though fortunately this does not affect the books internals (and is hidden by the dust jacket). The "wrappers" of the three accompanying folders are a little darkened in places, but overall they are in VG+ condition as are the contents. Thus with the exception of the aforementioned damp-marked cover the books are overall tight, internally clean and in VG or better condition, in about VG dust jackets (the jackets have only a few small chips and tears, but are a little darkened / grubby in spots. Now protected by removable mylar sleeves.) A large heavy set which will require increased shipping to that automatically quoted, price dependent upon the destination. Item #70313
