Series of twelve hardbound volumes of the scarce monthly occult journal The Word Magazine. The journal was originally published in wrappers; hardbound copies rarely appear on the market. Each publication contains contributions from numerous eminent writers and an editorial by Harold Percival, founder of The Word Foundation.
"From 1904 to 1917, Percival published a monthly magazine, The Word, that had a worldwide circulation. Many eminent writers of the day contributed to it, and all the issues contained an article by Percival as well. These editorials were featured in each of 156 issues and earned him a place in Who’s Who in America."
