SECRET SYMBOLS OF THE ROSICRUCIANS Of the 16th and 17th Centuries. An Exact Reproduction of the Orig (Used)
Book ID: 11843, 11843
London: Rider 1939, popular edition, folio, red boards gilt lettered, 57pp, 36 mostly full-page plates, text in vg condition, the bottom end of the spine is very lightly frayed and there is a tiny nick to one joint but a very good copy, the book shows only minimal signs of use. This is the second best edition in English, second only to the limited color edition, also published by Rider. Franz Hartmann edited a truncated and faulty edition that was published by the Occult Publishing Company in Boston in 1888, and later reprinted by Health Research. The only advantage of that edition is that the plates, some 25, were colored. The history of this keystone is complicated and required reading for any serious student before he approaches the text. The brief anonymous introduction here, (probably by George Engelke, the founder of Aries Press and a Golden Dawn member), does a good job of presenting the basics but better histories exist, most notably in the writings of A. E. Waite, Hanegraaff's Dictionary of Gnosis and the publications of the Ritman Library.

An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
