Leopold Engel (1858-1931) was a Russian writer and occultist who moved to Germany, finally settling in Dresden where he wrote extensively on the Faust legend. He became a follower of occultist Jakob Lorber (1800-1864). In 1896 Engel and fellow occultists Theodor Reuss and Franz Hartmann co-founded the Theosophical Society of Germany. During the 1890s he was also involved with a new Order of the Illuminati, but the new Lodges were not recognized and Engel was expelled from the organization in 1903. Engel published several occult novels, including DAS THAL DER GLÜCKLICHEN (1905), a utopian lost race story set in Africa. Lexikon 1, pp. 75-6. Bloch (2002) 876. Spine lettering mostly perished, cloth worn at edges, some mild stains to the bottom edge of the text block, but a sound, good copy. The first printing is very scarce.
