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 rules herein formulated for the use of man's Occult forces in all business and art, and for the development of his Occult powers, have been demonstrated successfully in the previous sale of these essays...." Chapters are: I) Power of Co-Operative Thought to Produce Results in All Business and Art, II) Love Is Power, (III) Woman's Occult Forces, (IV) How to Rule Your Kingdom, (V) Useful Occult Practices, (VI) Esoteric Laws of Happiness, (VII) Occult Helps.
