AUCTION - DRUGS - LSD 1968 Essay on Psychochemicals Booklet - Condition - Near Mint

Very interesting original, unread booklet on "A Western Approach to the Religious Use of Psychochemicals" that was published in 1968. The Author is Lisa Bieberman. " Dr. Humphry Osmond sought a name for the effect that LSD has on the mind, consulting the novelist Aldous Huxley who was interested in these drugs. Osmond and Huxley had become friends and Osmond gave him mescaline in 1953. Huxley suggested "Phanerothyme", from the Greek words for "to show" and "spirit" and sent Osmond a rhyme: "To make this mundane world sublime, Take half a gram of phanerothyme." Instead, Osmond chose "psychedelic," from the Greek words psyche (for
mind and soul) and deloun (for show), and wrote back, "To fathom Hell or soar angelic/Just take a pinch of psychedelic." Amazing. 32 pages. Measures 5 1/8" X 7 1/2". In Near Mint Condition.
