This edition of The Mystery of the Cathedrals offers an English translation of the original 1926 edition of Le Mystère des Cathédrales, retaining the original drawings from that edition.

The first edition of Le Mystère des Cathédrales fills an important place in the history of Alchemy. Newer editions added more material, but they couldn't replace the first one. Eugène Canseliet, said, in the preface for the 1926 edition: "the key to the major arcane is given, without any fiction, by one of the figures that adorn this work". It is up to the reader to extract the symbolic meanings of the original drawings, aided by the masterful exposition of Fulcanelli, which is shown in this translation as originally presented in its first edition, including the dedication to the brothers of Heliopolis and the strange coat of arms at the end of the text.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
