A newspaper for spiritualists and occultists...
Item # 651581
October 23, 1875
RELIGIO PHILOSOPHICAL JOURNAL, Chicago, October 23, 1875 A quite uncommon title which, as noted in the decorative masthead, is "Devoted To Spiritual Philosophy". This interesting newspaper was begun in 1865 by an association of dozens of the leading spiritualists of the day. Its masthead is a graphic depiction of the progressive, free-religious views of the association showing "Harmonial Philosophy" shedding its light on the Bible, Koran, Zend-Avesta and Shaster, surrounded by scenes of nineteenth-century progress (steamships, balloons, telescopes, factories, etc.). Files of this newspaper are held by the "International Assoc. for the Preservation of Spirtualists and Occult Periodicals".
Eight pages, archival strengthening at the margins.
