    More Information: A rare first edition of "The New Jerusalem," the foundation of Swedenborg's (1688-1722) attempt to revive the Christian Church from within.  As in "Heaven and Hell," published in the same year, he writes from direct experience of psychic worlds beyond space and time.  While his visions are expressed in the religious terminology of his century, there can be no doubt that Swedenborg was one of the most intrepid travelers into the far reaches of human consciousness.  As with several other works by Swedenborg, this was printed anonymously in London by John Lewis in an edition of 1,000 copies.  ESTC T135860. Hyde 1210. Lowndes 2553. Rosenthal, Magica, 2842.
