Chicago: The Progress Company, 1909. First edition. 8vo, original green cloth, gilt lettering, 206 pages. A trifle bumped and rubbed; a very good copy. Item #18290
From the industrious author on occult topics (the extensive writings of Atkinson, Theron Q. Dumont, Yogi Ramacharaka, Swami Panchadasi, Swami Bhakta Vishita, Theodore Sheldon and Magus Incognito indeed all flowed from Atkinson’s fluent pen) comes one of his earlier works, a practical guide to memory training (and, on comparison to the text, a separate work from his 1903 Memory Culture). Young, Bibliography of Memory, page 14 (also noting a 1909 edition with a joint Fenno-L. N. Fowler imprint, not found on OCLC; the copyright here is to the Progress Company). This title later published by the Holyoke, Mass. New Thought publisher Elizabeth Towne. Unusually for a book by the entrepreneurial Atkinson, this title evidently published without ads. Small violet ink stamp for an early Spokane bookseller on the front free endpaper and at the foot of the title page.
