This 1st Edition of “Mental Alchemy” is a rare occult book authored by the former Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order, Ralph Maxwell Lewis. This was the son of Harvey Spencer Lewis, who followed in his father’s path as the Imperator of Rosicrucian organization - the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC) from 1939 to 1987. He was the author of a number of books regarding mysticism, philosophy, and occultism.

As stated this is a first edition, 1978 printing of Cosmic Alchemy. The book is hard bound in thick faux leather, grey cover boards with an inset design on the front cover. The gold text embossed on the cover and spine is full and vibrant. The binding is tight, with a square spine, and both hinges fully intact. There are no loose or missing pages, and the inner pages are clean and supple, with no internal markings or damage to report.

The book discusses a variety of occult / esoteric / mystical teachings to aid in improving one’s life. Here is an excerpt of the contents taken from the inner dust jacket’s blurb: “The Alchemist of old sought to change base metals into gold, but it is Mental Alchemy that can bring about greater lasting treasure of happiness and peace of mind.” Please see my photograph of the table of contents for a better understanding of the book’s contents.

The original dust jacket is present and in great vintage condition. There is only minimal surface wear on the jacket, and there are a few chips / small tears along the edges. The exterior is clean with very minimal shelf wear. The book measures 8 ¾” tall x 5 ¾” wide, and spans well over 250 pages, with advertisements for other Rosicrucian books in the back, and several blank pages for notes.
