Book Details + Condition: Porter & Coates (Philadelphia). Stated Second Edition, 1877. Hardcover with blue boards and gilt decoration and lettering to front and spine. By Joseph A. Seiss. 250 pages, with fold-out illustration / diagram of the Great Pyramid. The book thoroughly examines the Great Pyramid at Gizeh, the oldest and largest of the pyramids. According to Seiss, the information is contained in the measurements and proportions of the stone structure with its interior rooms and corridors, and in its orientation on the Earth and to the stars. The silent stones at Gizeh contain many mysteries, as do the stones of Stonehenge, Chartres Cathedral, and the Mayan temples of the Yucatan. Many of their secrets have been uncovered; more are waiting. "The Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone" is a classic which has influenced much of the subsequent work on the subject. Solid binding; light wear to boards, with minor discoloration; chipping to endpapers; clean interior, free of markings.
