Seven: The Number of Creation - Desmond Varley

G. Bell & Sons, 1976, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ heavily sunned at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy.

Why, out of all the possible numbers, should special significance be attached to the number seven? Why are there seven days in a week, seven wonders of the ancient world, seven seas, seven virtues and seven sins? The number seven is shown to be implicit in all the folklore descriptions of the world catastrophe of fire and flood which are grouped together as 'creation legends', and the number is explicitly used in the Bible in the form of the seven days of Creation.
