A rare, signed first printing of Szekely's treatise on cosmotherapy, his own theoretical practice of new-age medicine as related to the effects of cosmic energies on human health, compiled and translated by Purcell Weaver from a series of lectures given by the author at The Summer School of Natural Health and Healing at Leatherhead, Surrey, England, Summer 1937. A significant figure in the area of holistic medicine, Szekely, who held a PhD from The Sorbonne, rose to prominence after publishing in 1936, what he claimed were translations of unpublished Essene manuscripts discovered while studying in the Vatican library in 1923. He published several, partial translations of the texts between 1936 and 1974. His claims, among others, were that the manuscripts served as early drafts to the Dead Sea Scrolls and Old Testament and that Jesus prescribed vegetarianism to his followers. While provocative when issued, his claims are considered dubious by modern scholars as the source texts have never been produced and the Vatican denies their existence. Nevertheless, throughout his lifetime, Szekely acquired a massive following, publishing over 80 books, promoting his theories and strategies of natural healing through cosmotherapy and biogenic living from Rancho La Puerta, a World-renowned Baja California resort located just miles South of San Diego, founded by he and his wife in 1940. The exclusive, 3,000 acre, holistic health spa continues to be operated by the family, to this day, serving 1000's of guests each year. This, a scarce and warmly inscribed book by its founder.
