First edition of the central occult work by Rogers, an associate of Eugene Debs and one-time member of the American Railway Union, in which capacity he was jailed by the US Government after the Pullman Strike of 1894. The book contains sections on The dreamer, The Materialistic Hypothesis is Inadequate, Dreams of Discovery, Varieties of dreams, Premonitory dreams, Memories of Astral Experiences, How to Remember Dreams, and, most interestingly, a section entitled Dreams of the Dead.
Rubberstamp to first blank for the Metaphysical Library in Vancouver, B. C., some occasional ink notations throughout and a paper label to spine. The front hinge is lightly cracked and was repaired with tape at an early date. Despite faults, a solid copy, much scarcer in the first edition than in the expanded edition published a few years later. Item #28816
