Show synopsis At her coming the lotus flowers begin their journey upward towards the light that she has risen to adore, and whose reflection is already present with her presence. The souls of men rise slowly from their bed of material darkness. -from "Isis at the First Hour" First published in 1928, this is a delightful document of the Egyptology craze Howard Carter had set off six years earlier with his discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. A meditation on the magic and mystery of the Egyptian goddess Isis, this beautiful book, illustrated with charming ink drawings, it eschews the hard facts of Egyptian history to present a free-flowing reflection on the legend of Isis, its interpretation, and it connection to the human soul. EVELYN EATON (1902-1983) was born in Switzerland to a Canadian army officer and his wife, and educated in Canada and England. She wrote numerous book, including The Interpreter and The Circling Mist.
