THE ALL-SEEING EYE reached an all-time high subscription of only 1500 subscribers, and was discontinued in 1931, making it very rare to find any surviving single original issues.

The boards and binding are solid and tight save for very light shelf-wear. In overall excellent condition; it honestly looks brand new.

Articles ranging from "Tolstoy's Prophecy of the Great War," to Shakespeare, to Chakras, Astrology, and Character Analysis, to Mystery Schools and the Ancients, to Reincarnation, to Freemasonry, the Rosie Cross, and the Christian Mysteries, to "Murder in the Name of the Law" (Capital Punishment) — many of these pieces were written or edited by Manly P. Hall himself. A truly rare find. Please see below for more information on Hall's THE ALL-SEEING EYE publication.
Manly P. Hall and The All-Seeing Eye Publication
In November of 1926, Hall re-created the All-Seeing eye as a 10 cent weekly newspaper devoted to philosophy, science and religion. It was rumored to be a clever platform in which to trumpet progress being made on Hall's elaborate compendium of occult philosophy and symbols.
Hall's weekly newspaper drew heavily from his growing home library and laid out the basic themes and principles and literary form that he would rely on throughout his long occult career.
He included news items clipped from mainstream publications, question-and-answer sections, notices of upcoming events and feature articles on interpretations of biblical stories, Egyptian initiation rites, chakras and glands, alchemy, astrology, Buddhism and reincarnation. He wrote about the mysterious magician Count de St. Germain, Madame Blavatsky and the theory and Sir Francis Bacon was the truth author of Shakespeare's plays.
Other articles spoke of the healing powers of arts and crafts, the grinding mindlessness of modern city life, the relationship between stress and disease and the false promises of most of the metaphysical pursuits that were suddenly all the rage in Los Angeles.
"Nearly all who spend a few years in modern metaphysics ," he warned in the March 23, 1927 edition of the All-Seeing eye, "come out broken in mind and body, self-centered egotists who do not know where they are mentally, have lost all desire to work, and wander from one teacher to another searching for knowledge until at last the instance asylum or the state grave year claims them."
