Triadbooks, Sedona, AZ 2007. isbn 1424335760. 71 pp. Near Fine.

Eight selections on Gurdjieff compiled by Barbara Ann Russell.

  • The Man in Question by James Moore. A distinct cameo and confirmation that "the Gurdjieff enigma is here to stay."
  • Gurdjieff, the Unknown Man by Kenneth Walker, M.D. Dr. Walker's vivid account of his meetings with Ouspensky and first visits to Gurdjieff' Paris apartment in the late 1940's, is distinguished by his keenly trained powers of observation.
  • The Old Man and His Movements by Pierre Schaeffer. Pierre Schaeffer (1910-1995) was a man of varied and outstanding accomplishments -- an engineer, theorist, researcher, telecommunications pioneer, critic, essayist, musician and composer who developed Concrete Music. His impressions of Gurdjieff offer an exceptional convergence of heartfelt experience and literary merit.
  • The Struggle to "Fathom the Gist" of Beelzebub's Tales by Terry W. Owens. In the 1960's, Felix Morrow, the publisher of University Books asked T.W. Owens to write an essay on Gurdjieff's All and Everything for their Mystic Arts Book Club newsletter. Writing again, some thirty years later, Owensfocuses on her continuing struggle to fathom Gurdjieff's book.
  • Meetings with Remarkable Men: A Conversation about the Book with Lord John Pentland, Professor Roy Finch of Sarah Lawrence College, and Lawrence Morris.
  • The Disenchantment of the Dragon by Martha Heyneman. A penetrating essay that links the symbolic structures of the Arthurian legend cycle, mythic elements underlying Beelzebub's Tales and wisdom that transforms rather than slays the Dragon.
  • Writings about Gurdjieff: A Selective Booklist 1921-2006 by J. Walter Driscoll. An Introduction and English-Language Bibliography, with notes on his music and movements, and a selective reading list.
  • Essentials - Aphorisms and Observations by A.R. Orage. Drawn from a wide variety of sources, this selection of fragments introduces Orage's vision of the potential for conscious development of being. In places, Orage's formulation of ideas, cosmology, and teaching employs Gurdjieff's terminology and expressions.

70 pages, oversized.

Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
