A very uncommon and decidedly unusual blend of philosophy and theology, explained as "the new conception of Christianity and of world religions (acceptable to this New Age) to be applied in practical form to every-day life as from this Year of Grace 1938." This "dynamic philosophy of life" was begun in 1934, but its publication delayed until a number of "eventualities--which are of major importance to the public mind on this New Year's Day 1938--were generally recognisable." Apparently an advertisement appeared "in all the National Dailies on New Year's Day, 1938," said advertisement reading "ESSENTIALISM/This is THE DAWN of the/GREAT CREATIVE ERA/UPON THE EARTH/and the beginning of/HUMANITY'S/UNPRECEDENTED/MANUMISSION/UPON THE EARTH/under the aegis of a/British-American Alliance/*/1938/will witness a tremendous/organisation of/MUTUAL SELF=HELP/in Gt. Britain in which all/will be asked to co-operate/*/Watch for Announcements--Remember/the name--ESSENTIALISM/it will become a household word/ESSENTIALISM." Yellow boards w/blue cloth backstrip, silver lettering/decoration to both covers, silver lettering to spine, 479 pages. Complete with Erratum slip tipped on at page 36, and three-part application bound between pages 466 and 467 (Form One for those interested, but who require more information before investing time and money in "the Organisation," Form Two for those already sure of Essentialism, who wish to apply for a prospectus and who plan to be financial contributors from the outset, and Form Three for those wishing to order additional copies of this specific tome). Some edgewear, moderately worn corners/spine ends, tanned/dusty/lightly soiled edges, gentle slightly horizontal bend to top of front cover (about 1/2" from top), moderate general wear, in edgeworn dust jacket w/chipping, several edge tears, dampstaining to rear panel. Jacket now in protective sleeve.
