Man and Mind—Mind and Man
1910—1912 Monthly
New York, NY. Publisher: Mystic Light Library Association. Editor: W.J. Colville.
1/1, September 1910-2/10, June 1912. Five cents a copy, 60 pp.

The journal was put out by the Mystic Light Library Association on John Street in Manhattan, with lists of books available at the Association's reading rooms that were rentable at 10 percent of price for 30 days, with an additional 5 percent for 30 days more. It reflects the transformation of Colville (1858/1862-1917) from a spiritualist medium into a New Thought occultist. It is related in some way to Mystic Light, a more Masonic journal, which also carried articles by Colville. The journal featured regular announcements of Colville's lectures, as well as articles by him and Max Heindel, reprints of articles by Anita Silvani on "The Strange Story of Ahrinziman" and others, lists of New Thought and Theosophical meetings around New York City, and advertisements by the likes of Mrs. J.H.R. Matteson of Buffalo ("One of the Most Conspicuous Clairvoyant Doctors for the Past Thirty Years") and Henry Clay Hodge's Science and Key of Life. ATLA microfilm; LOC; Yale University; Skidmore Library, Lily Dale (1 issue).
