The Light of Egypt, 1889: Christmas present

front cover, The Light of Egypt, Chicago: Religio-Philosophical Publications, 1889

Every version of The Light of Egypt that is available in print or online, until now, is of the two volume 1900 edition or twentieth century revisions thereof. For Elbert Benjamine, as expressed in his Brotherhood of Light lessons, the 1889 one volume edition was authoritative.

Christmas presents going through email today involve an Oregon publisher laboring on this text scanned by a Virginia editor for the benefit of a church and website in New Mexico and a coeditor in Colorado. Stay tuned for a link to the complete text when it is available online. The hard copy of the first edition will become property of The Church of Light in Albuquerque once the online publication is complete.
