ARTHUR EDWARD WAITE.


AZOTH; OR, THE STAR IN THE EAST. EMBRACING THE FIRST MATTER OF THE MAGNUM OPUS, THE EVOLUTION OF APHRODITE-URANIA, THE SUPERNATURAL GENERATION OF THE SON OF THE SUN, AND THE ALCHEMICAL TRANSFIGURATION OF HUMANITY.


London: The Theosophical Publishing Society. FIRST EDITION, 2nd state binding. 1893.


xvi + 239 pages with Index. Quarto (11 by 7 inch) hardcover in full olive green cloth, bevelled boards, titling in black to front & spine, black endpapers.


Some wear and bumping to corners, some light wear base of spine, some chipping & tearing to head of spine repaired as far as possible with glue & archival tape, a successfully removed label bottom front, a successfully removed label near base of spine, partially removed library label to front pastedown (no other library markings present), small old bookseller’s label to front pastedown, o/w hinges firm & solid & NEAR VERY GOOD CONDITION.


An early book on the mystical Opus of Alchemy by one of the pre-eminent scholars and authors in all occult subjects. He himself hailed it as a new guide to spiritual alchemy - i.e., his attempt to expand on the work already advanced previous to his time by Mrs. Atwood and General Hitchcock, in which alchemy was interpreted not really as a physical attempt to convert base metals into gold, but as a legitimate attempt at attaining mystical advancement.


The olive green bevelled cloth with black lettering was the second state of the book, issued in November 1894. The first state binding was also olive green bevelled cloth but was stamped with gilt titling and issued in February 1893.
