From the Facsimile Edition:

In the last decade of the nineteenth Century, three little paperbound pamphlets were published, each bearing this cover design. The Pamphlets represented the first appearance in "book form" of a series of twelve lessons that had been printed serially in Unity Magazine. They were the forerunners of literally millions of copies of the book Lessons in Truth, which became (and still is) Unity's basic text-book.

The present edition is printed from photographic plates made from the original 1895 printing. Occasionally you will find some broken type; there are some typographical errors, too. We have not changed these, nor anything else. Except for the study guide at the end of this book, what you hold in your hand is the authentic, original Lessons in Truth, exactly as it came from Dr. Cady's pen almost ninety years ago. It is a book that fits Helen Keller's description of "a ship that bears us away from the fixity of our limitations into the movement and splendor of life's infinite ocean."
