EARLY MAGNETISM IN ITS HIGHER RELATIONS TO HUMANITY AS VEILED IN THE POETS AND THE PROPHETS. Mary Anne Atwood Presentation Copy.
London: H. Bailliere, 1846. FIRST EDITION. Volume shows wear at head and tail; front panel gilt figure very bright on blind stamped frame. VERY GOOD copy, and a rarity. This book by Mary Anne Atwood’s father, Thomas South, preceded her work on Hermetica by four years though some would have it that this was as much a collaborative effort between father and daughter than just his alone. This copy was presented to: I. de S. [Isabel DeSteinger] from M.A.A. [Mary Anne Atwood], April, 1903 as inscribed on the front free end paper. Octavo. (Item ID: 13441)
