The Perfect Way by Anna Kingsford and Edward Maitland
Publication:1924 Macoy Publishing Company
This is an early edition of collection of lectures delivered by Kingsford in London before a private audience in May, June and July of 1881. This edition contains some revisions and an additional preface. Anna Bonus Kingsford (1846 - 1888), was one of the first women to work as a physician in England, and a passionate feminist, vegetarian, and anti-vivisectionist. She espoused her own form of Christian mysticism and esotericism, drawn from insights that she claimed to have received both in trance and through dreams. "The Perfect Way" was written with her collaborator and biographer, Edward Maitland.
