I can honestly say that these books changed my life. First, drawing me into Occult research, then into further research, once I realized they were bogus.
This book was originally published in 1889, by the Religio-Philosophical Publishing House of San Fransisco, CA.--written by T.H. Burgoyne, first as a series of lessons for those of The Hermetic Path. This book is a MUST-HAVE for all students of "Occultism," Astrology, Freemasonry, The Tarot, The Kabala, Religion & related areas of interest. The Light of Egypt is a link in the convoluted History of "Occultism."
Note : I Srongly suggest reading "The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor : Initiatic and Historical Documents of an Order of Practical Occultism," by Joscelyn Godwin, et al ( # ISBN: 0877288259 / ASIN: 0877288380 ) along-with these Volumes.
It seems, Burgoyne may have been a Pirate of other people's works, yet he at-least collected once hard-to-access information. These books have an important historical "collectable" value.
