First Printing, signed and inscribed. Very Good, plus some; see scans and description. Albany, NY: Manchurch, 1985. Stated First Printing of ‘The Art of the Mystic: The Master Course in Spiritual and Psychic Development’. Original copyright by author Thomas F. Kearns (The Centaur) was in 1984. Signed on the title page with both names – after a warm inscription to an apparently aspiring member of the movement. Octavo, illustrated perfect-bound wraps, 159 pp. Well illustrated with graphics and photographs of the members and inspirational predecessors of The Centaur’s direction. Very Good – technically; in fact, closer to Near Fine, with the only flaw being the inevitable small places of soiling on the covers when those are made of white-background absorbent paper. See all scans. Otherwise – immaculate. A what-it-is and a how-to on spiritualism, astral projection, karma, physical phenomena, psychometry, dowsing, spirit contact, Musical Spheres, Star Wars – Zen Master, Psychic Centers, Parade of Spirits, The Magic Ball of Satisfaction, and more – all being a part of Kearns’ concept of what we are. See all scans. Scarce – and, with inscription and signature, probably not replaceable at all. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box – not a bag. L22
