Title: Puss in 'Pye' Corner.
Publisher: Thought Values, New York
Publication Date: 1920
10" x 8.5". 410pp. Original red cloth boards stamped with occult figures, pink cloth spine. External wear and scratches, hinges weak, several ink marks inside, else VG condition. The is the only edition of this bizarre and incomprehensible (to us) volume of occult proclamations and explorations. Among the strange ramblings are criticisms of Oxford's Clarendon Press for printing books misrepresenting divine history, but the focus of the volume is quite exclusively linguistic and artistic. The author reveals all sorts of secrets encoded in various words and even in the movements of the mouth required to pronounce the words. He also elicits odd historical testimony from obscure artwork. Masons, Rosicrucians, and "Asmoleans" are all attacked as well. The publisher also published a volume Craft of They Cadeceus, of which one copy is found in NUC. Bookseller Inventory # 13535
