Ernest Yates Loomis (1863 - 1929), an American occultist, author, and publisher (as Ernest Loomis & Co.), was a somewhat mysterious and enigmatic character. He taught and wrote extensively on the occult, though many of his books — like this one — are now extremely hard to find, most notably his "Should Women Obey?". According to the Publisher's Preface of this book, "The methods and suggestions as herein presented have proved their efficacy to the satisfaction of thousands who have already read them..." Chapters are: I) Occultism in a Nutshell, II) Marriage, (III) How to Create Opportunities, (IV) Your Talents, (V) Health, (VI) Health Recipes, (VII) Methods of Using Occult Powers. No jacket issued.
