M21AAB. Bothwell Gosse, A, A Short Sketch of the Ancient and Accepted Rite, 1st and only edition, J.M Watkins, no date (1926), Cr8vo, stapled printed paper wraps, 16pp; inscribed “from the Author” and dated 1926, possibly in her hand. The author, one of the most prominent and influential female freemasons of the early 20th century, left co-masonry to form her own Order of Ancient Free and Accepted Masonry for Men and Women in 1925, heavily based around her reinstitution of the Ancient and Accepted Rite. During her early Masonic career, it was not known she was a woman, that when revealed, did not go down well in some circles! It is perhaps, tempting to ascribe this as the reason details of her lodge on the inside of the lower wrapper have been crossed out in pencil by a former (male?) owner! Wrappers a little discoloured around the edges and with some creasing at extremities, previous owner’s signature to upper wrapper, small chips to spine fold, staple rusting, last couple of upper corners dog-eared, text clean and tight, still a good and perfectly sound copy of a rare item, approaching good + overall and that unlike most of her publications, has not been subsequently reprinted £35

M23. Bowen, P.G, The Sayings of the Ancient One, 1st edition, Rider, no date (1935),  Cr8vo, salmon pink cloth with black lettering to spine and front board, 160pp; apparently an ancient text translated by Bowen from Insinzu, an archaic Bantu dialect, together with his introductory notes and commentary. The text contains great spiritual insight, which the author connected to the mysterious builders of Southern Africa’s great ancient cities, about whom little is known. He also predictably showed parallels with Madame Blavatsky’s Theosophical teachings. Spine and near edges of boards faded, upper corners rubbed, end papers browned, some occasional minor foxing to margins, text clean and tight. Later printings were heavily abridged, the full text not reprinted until 1985 and then only in soft cover. That issue is long out of print, as currently are all editions. This first edition is now very scarce, overall a good + copy £50

A few minor marks to cloth, the merest hint of fading to spine panel, off-setting to end papers, some very occasional minor foxing, text tight and still very clean, overall with a previous owner’s signature to the front end paper and discreet publisher’s compliments stamp to title page. Less common than the first American issue published in the same year, this first British printing is now very scarce in the pictorial dust wrapper, a near very good copy in at least good + (a little soiled, edges lightly worn with slight chipping to ends of spine panel, outer folds rubbed with small surface scuff to near edge of front panel) d/w £30
