About This Item

New York: E.P. Dutton & Co, 1936. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Octavo. Contemporary neat gift inscription, tiny spot on front board, near fine in likely age-toned near fine dustwrapper. "Paul Brunton, impelled by hunger for spiritual perfection and power, examined at great length the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid (within the King's chamber of which he slept a night alone), the Temple of Hathor at Denderah, the Karnac Temple, and the Initiation Temple a Abydos. In his acquaintship with seers, mystics, fakirs, dervishes, snake charmers, adepts, etc, he entered into the mysteries of ancient Egyptian Ritual and the power of modern 'charms' and magic."- from the jacket text. Despite the hype Brunton wrote several books and was a serious seeker traveling the world in search of spiritual truth. He is well respected in esoteric circles, bringing his own personal insights to any
discussion. One of his better books offering insights and reports (of which you may not always agree) into different cultures, in much better than usual condition.
