Abstract

THE mind of the gnostic is ever with us; it delights in founding the most far-reaching statements upon a basis of facts and dogmas which may or may not be true, but the relevance of which to the conclusion escapes the ordinary intellect. In this volume of 217 pages we have some fresh theories based on older ones about the Great Pyramid, but with a wide departure in results from those of the earlier theorists. Whatever we may conclude aboul the theoretical results of the late Prof. Piazzi Smyth, we all know that he was able to handle his material in a scientific fashion. This is far from the case in the present volume.

The Great Pyramid of Gizeh; its Riddle Read, its Secret Metrology Fully Revealed as the Origin of British Measures.
