Book Details + Condition: Very scarce first edition from 1916 of L.W. De Laurence's THE CAVE OF THE ORACLE: THE GREAT WHITE BROTHERHOOD; PERSIAN AND CHALDEAN MAGIC. Subtitle: "Talismanic Magic, Occultism, Seals and Talismans: Their Construction, Powers and Influence. Dreams, Visions, Omens and Oracles. Healing, Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Spiritism, and Bible Contradictions." Dating De Laurence's works and constant reprints is difficult, but we believe it likely to be the first printing of the de Laurence edition, due to the title page imprint "De Laurence, Scott & Co." The company ceased to exist in 1920, at which point “Scott” was dropped from the name. In very good condition: boards and binding are clean and tight, save a bit of light discoloration and small bump on back cover; slightly bumped corners; small bookstore stamp on endpaper; 2 small pieces of off-white tape on front and rear inside boards (unsure why they're present). Interior is clean and free of marking.
