Meetings with Remarkable Men
NY, Dutton, (1963). The first American edition of the posthumously published memoir of his two decades spent traveling in Central Asia around the turn of the 20th century in a quest for spiritual understanding and knowledge. Gurdjieff illuminates his insights by means of his portraits of the extraordinary individuals he encountered and who were his companions. This is one of the books that helped shape the metaphysical orientation of the 1960s counterculture and the New Age movements that followed it. Slight spine slant; near fine in a very good, spine-sunned dust jacket with modest edge wear and internal tape mends. [#034446] $100
