xxvi, 365 pp + (2) pp publisher's advertising, 9 1/8" H. Dark blue cloth with paper label on spine (black lettering/brick red border). Bookplate of Seaton Blanshard Pemberton on front pastedown, previous owner's red stamp at top of front free endpaper. "It appears to me that there are two descriptions of persons by whom the present work must be considered to be of inestimable worth, the lovers of antiquity and the lovers of ancient philosophy and religion. To the former of these it must be invaluable, because it is replete with information derived from the wise men of the Chaldeans, the prophets of the Egyptians, the dogmas of the Assyrians, and the ancient pillars of Hermes; and to the latter, because of the doctrines contained in it, some of which originated from the Hermaic pillars, were known by Pythagoras and Plato, and were the sources of their philosopy; and others are profoundly theological, and unfold the mysteries of ancient religion with an admirable conciseness of diction, and an inimitable vigour and elegance of conception." From the Introduction. Toning to edges of text block - darker on top, light edge wear - a little more at corners, wear and wrinkling at top/bottom of spine - tiny tears at bottom, very small water stain and some very light scuffing on spine label, faint water mark at bottom corners of boards and at bottom of hinges, small split in paper at bottom of inside front hinge, faint rubbing on boards. Book is protected in a stiff mylar sleeve.
