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