Journal of the British Society of Dowsers (6 issues 1979-1883)
1 Journal of the British Society of Dowsers (6 issues 1979-1883)
Ashford Kent, England British Society of Dowsers 198 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo - over 7 
These little magazines are great fun to read whether you believe in dowsing, or you don't. They're all clean and tightly bound and there are no labels. Issues are random from 1979 to 1983. One issue shows foxing to the first two pages (see last photo) caused by a catalog of books available in the Dowser Society Bookshop. The catalog almost makes it worth the defect -- no, I think it actually does! :-) The magazines measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and have around 47 pages each. Here's a sample of topics: the use of numbers in magic and healing, dowsing and the healing art, dowsing in everyday life, reflexology, what makes a good dowser, intuition and dowsing, wells and well drilling, proxy dowsing, dowsing for Roman roads, weather prediction by dowsing, practice for water dowsing, the Lost Cross of Waltham Abbey, Orthomolecular Nutrition, cradle charms, change of body weight during water divining, the use of the pendulum and more.

Astrology Moray Series No. 1 A Primer of Sidereal Astrology, Cyril Fagan and Brigadier R.C. Firebrac
2 Cyril Fagan and Brigadier R.C. Firebrac Astrology Moray Series No. 1 A Primer of Sidereal Astrology
No Place Stated No Publisher Indicated Spiral Binding, Soft Cover Good 
This book is clean and tightly bound, though a couple plastic spirals pulled away at the top and bottom of the spine. The previous owner repaired it with what looks like archival tape -- see photo -- but it does seem to be holding and doesn't look like a new repair.I think the book was published in the 1970's -when astrology was popular. I havehad many astrology items, but never heard of sidereal. According to Wikipedia, "classical tropical astrology is based on the orientation of the Earth relative to the Sun and planets of the solar system. Sidereal astrology works with the position of the Earth relative to both of these as well as the stars of the celestial sphere." The book measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/2" and has 94 pages.

6 Ellsworth, Paul Direct Healing (New Thought, 1916)
Holyoke, Massachusetts The Elizabeth Towne Company 1916 Later Printing Hard Cover Good No DJ 
Book was copyrighted in 1914 and published here in 1916. It's a hard one to find in the early green cloth binding. Book does have some faults -- a few light spots to the back, wear to top and bottom of spine, and spotting on a few pages. There is a blank bookplate on the front pastedown with no name (very fitting for the type of book), a stamp (faded) that shows a name from a former owner and a penciled note at top of front free endpaper from another previous owner which includes his name and this message, "Purchased October 3, 1970 at "Acres of Books" Long Beach, California." Having said all that, the book is tightly bound with no wobbling to spine and is overall clean. The author has written many books about New Thought philosophy, which is based in Christianity. The publisher, Elizabeth Towne, also published a New Thought magazine called Nautilus which ran continuously until 1953 when at age 88 she deemed herself too old to continue. Book measure 5-1/4"x7-1/2" and has 173 pages. Concerns healing in all aspects of life.

Good Manners and Success, Marden, Orison Swett
10 Marden, Orison Swett Good Manners and Success
New York Thomas Y. Crowell 1900 Circa 1900-1905 Hard Cover Good-plus No DJ 
Collectors of early New Thought will recognize this author, the founder of Success Magazine (1897). Marden also was closely allied with Elizabeth Towne's magazine Nautilus, for which he was a regular contributor. At first glance this topic seems off the beaten track until you turn the content page to the last section titled The Law of Kindness. The book is pretty and shows only minor exterior wear and a small stain to back corner near the spine, The book is tightly bound with 64 clean pages.It was given as a gift originally to "Helen Heffner From Papa." But later it came to belong to an attorney who wrote on the bottom of three pages and dated one of them 1905. One entry is a story, the other how good he feels when he follows the advice in the book. Here's an example of one page with his handwriting, "A few older members of the bar told me that in 1860 Douglass gave an address in Clyde. He spoke from an improvised platform in the street. There he mentioned the name of Lincoln who was his first contestant for the Presidency. A little boy cried out, 'Hurrah for Lincoln!' Douglass stopped in his speech and addressed the lad with, "that is right my boy if you are for Lincoln. He is a most excellent man."
