First edition, first impression; rare in the dust jacket. Gerald Heard (1889–1971) was a British author and philosopher whose innovative works examined history in the context of humankind’s evolving consciousness. This book is his attempt to write a “history of our own times” and to determine the underlying causes of modern events. His conclusion, that “we have reached a point of development upon which posterity may look as a crisis in the progress of civilization” was, in 1933, remarkably prescient.

Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine in white, green top-stain. With the dust jacket. A little rubbed and darkened at the edges of the boards, spine faded particularly at the head and tail, spine titles flaking, spotting to endpapers but otherwise contents clean and fresh. A very good copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with a closed tear to the fold of the tanned spine panel repaired with tape to the verso.
