The Original I Ching: An Authentic Translation of the Book of Changes

By Margaret J. Pearson Ph.D.

Rutland Vt: Tuttle Publishing, 2011. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/near fine. Lightest shelf wear to the book and jacket. Clean and unmarked. First printing, full number line. From the back cover:";; The I Ching or Book of Changes is one of the World's most influential books-comparable to the Bible, the Koran, and the Upanishads. Since its origin 3,000 years ago, it has become a compendium of wisdom used by people of many cultures and eras, analyzed by scholars and seekers alike. This groundbreaking new translation is based on core text created during the first centuries of the Zhou Dynasty (1045?-256BCE). Freed from the distorting effects of commentaries written a thousand years later and after, the essential meaning of the original text comes through here with unusual directness. For those wishing to use the text to clarify their thinking about decisions, Pearson also provides a step-by-step guide." Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours.

"Bob" Dobbs, purportedly a salesman from the 1950s, who is revered as a prophet by the Church. SubGenius leaders have developed detailed narratives about Dobbs and his relationship to various gods and conspiracies. Their central deity, Jehovah 1, is accompanied by other gods drawn from ancient myth and popular fiction. SubGenius literature describes a grand conspiracy that seeks to brainwash the world and oppress Dobbs' followers. In its narratives, the Church presents a blend of cultural references in an elaborate remix of the sources." Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours.

The Book of Common Prayer, 1559: The Elizabethan Prayer Book, ([Folger documents of Tudor and Stuart civilization)

By John E. Booty, editor

Washington DC: Folger Shakespeare Library, 1978. Hardcover. Good/good. Third printing. Shelf wear to the book; more to tips, corners, and edges of the jacket; page edges spotted; jacket has several closed tears, stained / spotted. One of the most important works in the development of the Church of England. Elizabeth I made reform of the English Catholic church an early effort of her reign. The forms and practices of her newly reformed church applying to clergy and the lay people as well were established in law and by the 1559 Prayer Book. " ...the Act of Uniformity 1559, giving statutory force to the Prayer Book, passed through the House of Lords by only three votes. It made constitutional history in being imposed by the laity alone, as all the bishops, except those imprisoned by the Queen and unable to attend, voted against it. Convocation had made its position clear by affirming the traditional doctrine of the Eucharist, the authority of the Pope, and the reservation by divine law to clergy "of handling and defining concerning the things belonging to faith, sacraments, and discipline ecclesiastical." After the several innovations and reversals, the new forms of worship took several decades to settle in as acceptable with 70-75% of the population by the end of the reign in 1603.

Light shelf wear to tips, corners, and edges of the book and jacket. First printing, no others noted. From Wikipedia: "The Pilgrim's Regress is a book of allegorical fiction by C. S. Lewis. This 1933 novel was Lewis's first published work of prose fiction, and his third piece of work to be published. It charts the progress of a fictional character named John through a philosophical landscape in search of the Island of his desire. Lewis described the novel to his publisher as "a kind of Bunyan up to date," in reference to John Bunyan's 17th century novel The Pilgrim's Progress, recast with the politics, ideologies, philosophy, and aesthetic principles of the early 20th century. As such, the character struggles with the modern phoniness, hypocrisy, and intellectual vacancy of the Christian church, Communism, Fascism, and various philosophical and artistic movements...Christian Reflections (1967; essays and papers; all essays found in Essay Collection [2000])...God in the Dock is a collection of previously unpublished essays and speeches from C. S. Lewis, collected from many sources after his death. Its title implies "God on Trial"and the title is based on an analogy made by Lewis suggesting that modern human beings, rather than seeing themselves as standing before God in judgement, prefer to place God on trial while acting as his judge.This book was originally published in the United Kingdom as Undeceptions: Essays on Theology and Ethics, while a shorter book, published by Fontana in 1979 and entitled God in the Dock: Essays on Theology, does not include many of the essays in this larger collection.

The existence of the amateur was recognised by the publication of this Library, and to a great extent made respectable. ... The difficulty of Greek is not sufficiently dwelt upon, chiefly perhaps because the sirens who lure us to these perilous waters are generally scholars [who] have forgotten ... what those difficulties are. But for the ordinary amateur they are very real and very great; and we shall do well to recognise the fact and to make up our minds that we shall never be independent of our Loeb."

There is an article by Charles Dickens arguing against capital punishment. The Ballou's were a notable Rhode Island family well into the 20th century. Eli Ballou (1808-1883) was descendant of the Huguenot immigrant Maturin Ballou by his son James. Eli, (a great-grandson of James, grandson of Nathaniel) was born in Leroy, New York. His father, Chester, died when he was eight and Eli was bought up by his mother, Rachel Hayworth, a Quaker. He later lived with a Universalist family and was converted by listening to their preacher and reading their religious literature. Inspired to become a preacher, he studied theology and in 1831 was given Universalist fellowship by the St. Lawrence Association. Like the Restorationists, he believed in a period of discipline in the afterlife. He preached in northern New York State and nearby Canada, 1832-33, then settled in Swanton, Vermont, 1833-37, and in Stowe and Morristown, Vermont, 1837-40. After recovering from a severe illness, he bought the Christian Repository, which he published and edited, 1840-70. In this editorial post he was widely influential amongst Universalists. He preached in Kansas and Iowa, 1870-72. Returning to Vermont, he settled in South Woodstock, 1872-79; Barnard and Bethel, 1879-1882; and East Montpelier, 1882-83. He received an honorary D.D from a college in Kentucky around 1860. Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible.
