London: Privately Printed, 1923.
Second Edition. This expanded and revised edition limited to 500 copies, signed by the author, of which this is #301 with a rather flamboyant Gardner signature. A number of the 500 copies seem to have not actually made it to being signed. 8vo. 101pp. Publisher’s blue cloth titled in gilt to front board. Clean and sharp, minor edgewear, a very good copy. Internally clean, edges untrimmed, and indeed the volume is largely uncut, giving every evidence of being unread. Some minor spotting. A rather delightful copy of a noted piece of esoteric scholarship, compiled by an actual antiquarian bookseller, with over 760 entries that could in the main rather be described as generally hermetic rather than specifically Rosicrucian.
