The Way of Initiation by Rudolf Steiner with Forward by Annie Besant some biographical notes by Edouard Schure
Publishing: 1911 The Occult Publishing Company Impression not stated - believed to be a second impression.
"The Way of Initiation" remains one of Steiner's foundational works. The essays were originally published in Blavatsky's "Lucifer Magazine" during Steiner early esoteric associations. This American edition was released just prior to Steiner's split from the Theosophical Society, and these essays were pivotal in introducing Steiner to an American audience along his newly found Anthroposophical Society. The society grew rapidly by the end of the first world war, as did Steiner popularity and lecturing activity.
