Invisible Helpers.

Invisible Helpers.

Madras, India: Theosophical Publishing House, 1928. First Indian Edition (Revised and Enlarged). Hardcover Octavo. (viii) + 188pp. Blue grey cloth titled on spine & front board. Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854-1934) was a prominent, if controversial, member of the Theosophical Society, co-founder of the Liberal Catholic Church, and author of many books on Theosophy and various aspects of occultism. In this work Leadbeater discusses "invisible helpers" - mysterious beings who have miraculously come to the aid of those in distress or disaster - accounts of which seem to crop up in all ages and circumstances. Whilst often regarded as "angels" Leadbeater suggest that these are in fact the astral forms of living individuals of great spiritual attainmnet, committed to the lending aid to others when possible. Cloth a little faded and patchy, bottom corners bumped, a chemical reaction with the binder's glue has caused the innermost margin between the title-page and adjacent page to turn brown, and some splits to form in the gutter of that page. A little brown flecking. Otherwise a tight and solid example of an unusual edition (no dust jacket - possibly none issued?). Item #70317
