The Hymns of Hermes by G.R.S. Mead
Publication: 1907 The Theosophical Publishing Company First Edition
The second volume in the Echoes from the Gnosis series. Perhaps one of the scarcest of the eleven volumes edited by Mead and published by the Theosophical Publishing Co. The series of small volumes "was drawn from, or based upon, the mystic, theosophic and gnostic writings of the ancients" so as to make available to a wider audience "some echoes of the mystic experiences and initiatory lore of their spiritual ancestry."
The present edition, with the triangular design on the cover, are desired among collectors.
Condition: publishers green cloth boards, title to spine, triangular design to front cover, some minor spotting to prelim and rear page (84), association copy with small bookplate of notable book publisher John M. Watkins, overall in Very Good condition
