Bound in a sturdy burgundy cloth which has held up well, stamped with a black geometric pattern and with titles in a gilt which remains strong. The black endpapers and hinges are lovely. Previous owner has rubber-stamped her name to title page and FFE, and there are some additional marginal notes and scattered underlining in pencil. 122 pp. followed by 8 pp. of advertisements, most notably for the author's "Boston College of Metaphysical Science" at 130 Chandler St., Boston, "Incorporated November 1886 . . . Classes Formed Monthly. . . . Students Thoroughly and Practically taught the Science of Spiritual and Christian Healing." Luther M. Marston in August of 1883 was listed as the 46th student since she began in May of 1882 to take the primary course in Christian Science Healing from Mary Baker Eddy at her own Massachusetts Metaphysical College at 571 Columbus Ave., Boston. Whether Dr. Marston had Mrs. Eddy's blessing to set up his own school and to begin publishing his "Mental Healing Monthly" magazine ("Not confined to any one school of thought . . . its columns are open to all") -- also advertised here -- or whether his efforts were parallel to or even in competition with hers, we do not know.
