Occult Chemistry by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater
Publication: 1951 Theosophical Publishing Company Third Edition
This is the best and preferred edition, the size of this book was significantly larger than the first two editions (measuring 13" in height and 10" lenght). The illustrations were also revised and completely redrawn by Elizabeth W. Preston, in close association with Mr. Jinarajadasa who also wrote the new introduction to the work. Occult Chemistry is an unusual work by Besant and Leadbeater in which they describe and co-relate the structure of chemical elements based on their own clairvoyant investigations. From the publisher: "This work contains a record of clairvoyant investigations into the structure of matter...The two investigators, Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbeater, were trained clairvoyants and well equipped to check and supplement each other's work." The book is quite large and perhaps the reason most collectors prefer this edition.Numerous black and white diagrams with illustrations and plates throughout.
