The Garden of the Heart
From the Writings of BAHA'U'LLAH and ABDUL'L BAHA'

by Frances Esty, 1930

This book measures 8 3/4" x 5 7/8" and has 153 pages. The binding is cloth over boards with a pink ribbon book mark.
The book deals with the Baha'i Faith. Atypical quote from the book is, "To one who visited in Haifa, 'Abdu'l-Baha said substantially, in likening the Cause of God to a Garden: 'At the gate of the garden some stand and look within, but do not care to enter. Others step inside, behold its beauty, but do not penetrate far. Still others encircle this garden inhaling the fragrance of the flowers, having enjoyed its full beauty, pass out again by the same gate. But there are always some who enter and, becoming intoxicated with the splendor of what they behold, remain for life to tend the garden'."
Francis Esty wrote much like Mary Rumsey Movius did in her her 1937 book by The Roycroft Press, Life Eternal.
