This is the original ground-breaking edition that for the first time elucidated the divine Science of metaphysical Mind healing. 456pp plus the original rare Errata sheet. 5"x7-3/4" with gilt stamping on the spine. Bound in brown linen cloth hardcover. This volume has had about half a dozen previous owners all noted in original handwriting in the front part of the book. This particular example is in very good condition. The pages are in very fine condition with light pencil marks to less than 10 pages. About eight pages have had some minor professional repair to them (serious inquirers can ask for additioinal photos via email). This volume has very recently undergone a professional strengthening of the binding and is in excellent tight condition otherwise.
