Item Description: Samuel Weiser Inc., York Beach, ME, 2001. First edition. Hardcover. Large octavo. xii + 242pp. Original blue cloth gilt-lettered on spine and front cover. Fold out chart. “Mazzaroth” by Frances Rolleston (1781 – 1864) sets out the author’s theories that about the nature of the constellations, drawn both from her own astronomical observation, Biblical research, and a deep investigation of ancient myth, language and symbolism. It was her contention that the designations of the constellations as we know them are not derived from pre-Christian mythology, but rather were a visual record of Divine prophecy, and that the signs of the Zodiac also typified the twelve truths of Divine revelation. In seeking to argue this point she amassed a huge amount of material on the comparative beliefs of different ancient cultures – some of which she presented in tabular form to highlight the correspondences. Her work was well received by occultists and fringe theologians. This edition comprises all four parts (each was originally issued separately) with a new foreword by scholar R. A. Gilbert. A clean Fine copy in lightly rubbed near Fine dust jacket. Was $75.00. Bookseller Inventory # 53710
