M167C. Ralston Skinner, J, Key to the Egyptian Mystery in the Source of Measures Originating the British Inch and the Ancient Cubit, By Which Was Built the Great Pyramid of Egypt and the Temple of Solomon; and Through the Possession and Use of Which, Man, Assuming to Realise the Creative Law of the Deity, Set it Forth in a Mystery, Among the Hebrews Called Kabbalah, 1875-6, David McKay, no date, (c.1931), 8vo, blue cloth with gilt titles to spine, 2 parts in one, 16 + 324 + 63pp, with diagrams in the text and a folding plan, with two ownership inscriptions to the front end paper, one of which is in the distinctive hand and green ink of occult author Leo Vinci, although (presumably) under his real name. A complex esoteric study of ancient sacred number and proportion, Ralston Skinner’s work is an excellent adjunct to Stirling’s Canon which did not appear until 1897. Corners and spine ends and little worn, rear hinge slightly strained, edges of text block rather soiled, trivial spots to end papers, otherwise internally clean and tight. An 1894 second edition of the book did appear, but very few copies survived due to destruction by a warehouse fire, this first exact reprint of the original two parts in one volume issued by David McKay is believed to have only consisted of 500 copies and is now a very scarce book. A good + overall copy £150
