About this Item

Bound in dark green cloth. Title page states "Boston: / Christian Science Publishing Company. / 1875." However, four lines of type inserted above those lines read "Reproduced by / Rare Book Company / 99 Nassau Street / New York." Thus, while we have here the TEXT of the 1875 first edition, attributed on spine, on title page, and at bottom of Preface to Mary Baker Glover (not Mary Baker Eddy, as in later editions), this is NOT the true first edition. (Early text remains historically important, since "Science and Health" was subject to ongoing author rewrites and revisions in later editions.) Following 456 pp. of text and two pp. of Errata (bound in), we find a two-page catalogue of the offerings of The Rare Book Company, "Publishers and Reproducers of Offset Prints in early / Christian Science Literature." The latest dated title in this catalogue is "The Story of the Christian Science Church Manual," 1934, which gives us our approximate date of publication for this copy. Book will close its own text block but not its boards. Moderately rubbed to front board and corners. Gilt almost entirely gone from spine title and author name ("Glover"), leaving those titles legible only as blindstampings when turned to the light. Internally unmarked, easily legible, very nice. Pages are only slightly age-toned. Reduced from $195. Bookseller Inventory # 002262
