Advance, uncorrected proofs for: Journey to Ixtlan: the lessons of Don Juan; Tales of power; and, The second ring of power

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1972-77. Tall, narrow octavos (12" x 4¾"; 10" x 4¾"; and, 11½" x 5¼"), original printed yellow wrappers; the first with a stapled label from the publisher inside the upper cover; and the third with a label from the publishers laid in; front wrapper on the first is loose; all else very good or better. Many of my age will remember how transformational these books were when we were young adults. Written while he was an anthropology student at UCLA, Castaneda wrote that these books were ethnographic accounts describing his apprenticeship with a traditional "Man of Knowledge" identified as don Juan Matus, a Yaqui Indian from northern Mexico. The veracity of these books was doubted from their original publication, and they are now widely considered to be fictional. Item #59333
