This is an original FIRST edition of Science and Health, by Mary Baker Glover, published in 1875. Originally 1,000 copies were printed of this first edition. A total of 432 editions were issued during the authors lifetime, resulting in this book and its subsequent editions becoming the most popular book in print next to the Bible, at one time. This is the original ground-breaking edition that for the first time elucidated the divine Science of metaphysical Mind healing. 456pp plus a copy of the original rare Errata sheet. 5"x7-3/4" with gilt stamping on the spine. Bound in brown linen cloth hardcover. This volume has seen extensive use with copious notations throughout with markings in mostly pencil but some pen as well; some pages had extensive repair (additional photos upon request to serious inquirers). This particular example is in overall fair to good condition on the pages themselves. It has very recently undergone a complete professional strengthening of the binding, repair of pages, and is in excellent condition otherwise.
