8vo - 22.5 x 15 cm.; xxiii - 413 pp. Light blue cloth (linen) over boards with gilt lettering on a red spine panel. A nice thought from the editor's introduction: "This collection is not intended to be a school of mysticism, nor does it surreptitiously suggest some scale of perfection . . . No one is likely to bcome a mystic merely by reading this collection, but by contrast and affinity, by similitude and witness, we hope our readers will come to an awareness of the beauty and loftiness of the narrow and steep path, and feel stimulated to make some of these texts their favorite contemplative reading." Mild wear to the fore corners of the boards and more moderate wear to the spine tips. The spine itself is darkened (sunned) a tad. The library markings, none of which are external, are a stamp on the title page and attachments on the back end papers. Previous owners' names (3 of them) crossed out on the front free end paper. The interior is otherwise clean and the binding is sound. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
