THE SCIENCE OF MIND was written in 1926 by American author Ernest Shurtleff Holmes, well known as founder of the Religious Science movement.
Well, the holidays are over, which means it’s time to reward yourself for making it through another season; get that present for yourself. Some specific posts on individual works (with better picture) are forthcoming, including those two dark, imposing tomes on the top left of the above picture. One of the great, forgotten American road novels, The Gay-Cat: The Story of a Road-Kid and his Dog, is a wonderful example of how a somewhat heavy handed use of vernacular can make a book seem quite different when that vernacular falls into disuse. You can come down to the store and check out this and other wonderful titles, or you can find it online, through Abe Books, here.
This amusing little survey presents a variety of books that one English bookseller named Michael Bell collected during his years in the business.  The titles range from how-to manuals to kids’ books.
But there are also tiles which are simply, unaccountably odd, like How to Recognise Leprosy, A Popular Guide. Since these are the type of books better seen than described, I’ll let you come by and explore for yourself.  Stop by and ferret out some amusing curios of your own in our antiquarian sections.
Curios is a periodic series about an interesting used book; rare or common, expensive or cheap, we hope it’s a book you didn’t know you were looking for. Tomorrow morning you’re going to trip and fall into a wormhole that drops you into the evening gala for the New Orleans Opera Association at the New Orleans Municipal Auditorium. Luckily you spent tonight perusing the 1964 Social Register of New Orleans at Bibliohead Bookstore, all the way across the country in San Francisco, so you’re well-prepared to face this crowd on such a pleasant—uh…morning?
This is the psychic's chart and should be carefully considered, as it shows that the Spirit, or Conscious Mind, operates through a mental field, or law, which is a world of reflections.
This is the Mystic's chart and shows how the Universal becomes the Particularization of Itself through man.
Leadbeater (long-time associate of the Theosophical Society and founding bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church) collects and updates a series of earlier articles elaborating and synthesizing various eastern doctrines associated with the nadis and chakras. Bailey is an expansive exploration of speculative physics, psychology and cosmology in a theosophical key (no less than 13 hundred pages!). We will be featuring some of them over the next few weeks, or until some lucky seeker comes in and buys them up. The present volume, heavily influenced by the writings of Thomas Troward (whose titles may also be found at Bibliohead) is a foundational text of the movement, a didactic work of practical spiritual instruction, indicating “the technique by which the seeker after truth may obtain freedom from the oppression of a mechanistic civilization.” Seekers-after-truth, BE WARY!


This prolific and consistently brilliant writer couldn’t have been a better recipient of the prestigious award. So, after taking a photo of yourself wearing that hideous sweater grandma got for you so you can prove what grateful person you are, and after returning it, take that sweater cash down to Bibliohead and check out some of our beautiful books. It feels at times a little stilted but then, I am no expert on hobo slang of the early twentieth century, so who knows. But what you’re thinking is why Scouts in Bondage is the cover image and borrowed title of this particular book.
All of his specimens were published before World War II, and that’s the source of much of the mirth to be found here: most of these books suffer from the drift of slang, unintended double entendres, and the more prurient eye with which we read such once-innocent titles. The introduction to Bell’s selection explains that he put these titles in the window of his shop to attract amused attention, and thus, I would imagine, foot traffic. It contains “a course divided into 14 lessons for the scientific study of character and emotional habits represented by each separate facial feature.” It seems to be a guide to a sort of phrenology of the face. Since you’re a dot-com billionaire hipster who wears nothing but vintage tuxes all day, every day—and aren’t you glad of it now!—no one’s giving you funny looks when you, looking very, very confused, stumble out from behind a large fern beside the punch table. The author claims that his work is among the first published in the English language on the topic. We are calling this series, Meetings with Remarkable Books, in homage to that mustachioed mystic, G.I. Ours is a beautifully maintained copy from 1928 is from the third printing by McBride, New York. Despite some brisk business over the holidays we still have many great titles, collectible and plain enjoyable.
I think maybe a dog that the “Road-kid” meets early on is later named Gay-cat, though that seems a little mean given the definition. The full title might help make a little more sense of things: Scouts in Bondage, and Other Violations of Literary Propriety. We use our windows for more thematic displays, but since Bell’s shop window isn’t too far off from our Curios selection, I thought I would make a contribution of our own. The back page’s quick-reference diagram of the whole face explains that the upper lip is expressive of “sexual vitality,” for instance.
Bibliohead Bookstore is proud to offer for sale a choice first edition of this pioneering work on yoga, replete with several color plates depicting the various energy centers.


Do yourself a favor and pick up any of her many collections and introduce yourself to one of the finest writers in the English language. You even read the entire index of women listed by their maiden names, so you can pretend to ask how your old classmate from the University of Baltimore, Emily Feth is, and then correct yourself, “I mean Emily Hibler, of course!
He will “peach” on his mates.” It goes on in similar fashion, though “peach” could perhaps use a definition. A previous owner has written, in pencil, on the front free end-paper a sort of reference page that gives a glimpse of both an unfortunate use of racial epithets among all the other slang, and a concern with labor issues. Manwell and published by the Religious Tract Society, or The Danger of Cruising, a book of poems by Charles Sutton published in 1937. From the standpoint of man's thoughts it may be false or true, according to the way in which he thinks. The mystic has the ability to consciously talk to God and to consciously receive a direct answer from the Spirit. We often have used copies of her work, and we are now carrying a new copy of her last work, Dear Life, but if you know you’re a fan already, we have a beautiful and very affordable first edition of her fantastic, The Progress of Love. The first reference labor issues is on page 70 and concerns the importation of cheap labor for work as laborers on a farm, and a fairly astute criticism of the practice.
In this chart it is shown that the Absolute contains the relative, within Itself, but is not limited by the relative.
The illusion of matter means that the false mental pictures will produce a false form in the world of objectivity. The road-kid is from Grass Valley, a small mining town here in California, not far from San Francisco, and the book takes place largely in California. Mind is not an illusion, but might contain false pictures which would be illusions; matter is not an illusion but may take on false conditions. All conditions obtain within that which is Limitless; and Creation is eternally going on within that which is Uncreated.
