Book Details + Condition: Scarce first edition from 1942 of "The Master Book of Candle Burning or, How to Burn Candles for Every Purpose". Softcover is in very good condition: minor shelfwear; small corner chip from front cover & p. 7 (does not affect text); some age toning and discoloration to covers; pages are clean and free of interior writing. Some smudges within book pages, however, this seems an issue with the original printing. The book outlines the practices used and taught by mediums, spiritual advisors, evangelists, and others who use candles and psalms to help in money drawing rituals, love spells, and other incantations. Includes a history of candles, their usage, and symbolism.
