Obsession and possession by spirits both good and evil in Oriental and occidental spiritualism and occultism among primitive races  In antiquity, the middle ages, and modern times, Oesterreich, Traugott Konstantin
25 Oesterreich, Traugott Konstantin Obsession and possession by spirits both good and evil in Oriental and occidental spiritualism and occultism among primitive races In antiquity, the middle ages, and modern times
Chicago, IL de Laurence Co 1935 American Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Blue cover with gold print. Cover shows some wear and inside has some yellowing. Contents clean. A rare and sought after reference on Obsession and Possession. This American edition was prepared for publication by L.W. de Laurence. A recent historical view of Obsession from the web is: This belief may be found in the earliest records of human history—in the ancient magic rites and in the pronouncements often used as charms against and for the exorcism of these invading influences. The oldest literary remains from India, Greece, and Rome are filled with references to possession. While there are passing references to demons and demon obsession or possession in sacred Jewish writings—such as the case of Saul, who was "troubled with an evil spirit from God" only to be relieved by the music of David's harp (1 Sam. 16:14-16)—it is with the Christian movement that a major emphasis on spirit possession emerges. Jesus regularly healed by casting possessing spirits out of the mentally ill. Crucial to later understanding of possessing spirits in the Western tradition are incidents such as Jesus' driving the legion of demons into the swine (thus demonstrating their existence apart from the psychology of the possessed individual) and Paul's driving out of the divining spirit who possessed a young woman of Thyatira (thus associating spirit possession with fortune-telling) Scarce if not Rare. . ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 400 pages

The Choral Revival in the Anglican Church, 1839-1872, Rainbow, Bernard
28 Rainbow, Bernard The Choral Revival in the Anglican Church, 1839-1872
New York Oxford Univ Press 1970 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Green cloth cover with gilt print. Dus has minor tears and now in Mylar protective cover. Former owners name in front. This classic is unique in being the only book specifically on the musical history of the Catholic Movement in the CofE. NEW DIRECTIONS. When Bernarr Rainbow was director of music at the College of St Mark and St John, Chelsea, he came across the 1849 diary of service music of Thomas Helmore. Astonished at its breadth of repertoire, he was inspired to investigate the circumstances of the document. His findings are recorded in this book, which sets Thomas Helmore's contribution in perspective against the background of the Choral Revival as a whole.In tracing the history of the remarkable revival of care for the music of the liturgy, the author produced a socio-musical history of a period vital in the evolution of the Anglican Church, and made clear, probably for the first time, how music in the Anglican Church came to follow lines which are unique in Christendom. His book was originally published at a time of important changes in ecclesiastical thinking; his presentation of the decisions taken in the past which led to the existing relationship between choirs and congregations, interesting in itself, is also valuable in the continuing debate.; Studies in Church Music; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches; 368 pages

29 Reid, Bertha Westbrook Wallace Reid His life story
New York Sorg Pub. Co 1923 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Blue cover with gold print shows spotting Very rare account of Wallace Reid by his mother. William Wallace Reid was named the silent "screens most perfect lover" by Motion Picture Magazine. Born William Wallace Reid in St. Louis, Missouri into a show business family, his mother Bertha Westbrook was an actress and his father, Hal Reid(1860-1920), worked successfully in a variety of theatrical jobs, travelling the country. As a boy, Wallace Reid was performing on stage at an early age but acting was put on hold while he obtained an education at Freehold Military School in Freehold, New Jersey. A gifted all-around athlete, Reid participated in a number of sports while also following an interest in music, learning to play the piano, banjo, drums, and the violin. As a teenager, he spent time in Wyoming where he learned to be an outdoorsman.Reid was drawn to the burgeoning motion picture industry by his father who would shift from the theatre to acting, writing, and directing films. In 1910, a 19-year-old Wallace Reid appeared in his first motion picture called The Phoenix. while working on location in Oregon making The Valley of the Giants (1919), Reid was injured in a train wreck and in order to keep on filming he was prescribed morphine for his pain. The powerful drug almost immediately led to a deadly addiction but Reid kept on working at a frantic pace in films that were growing more physically demanding and changing from 15-20 minutes in duration to as much as an hour. Reid's morphine dependency deepened at a time when proper help for any form of addiction was non-existent. By late 1922, his health had deteriorated badly and after contracting the flu, he fell into a coma from which he never recovered.Dead at age thirty-one, Wallace Reid was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.Unlike the self-destructive behavior of other stars of that era such as Barbara La Marr, Jack Pickford, and Jeanne Eagels whose death resulted from drugs and/or alcohol abuse, historical records point to Wallace Reid being a victim of medical ignorance.
