RAVALETTE, THE ROSICRUCIAN'S STORY. (Used)
by Randolph, Pashal Beverly.
Book ID: 443, 443
Philosophical Publishing Company 1939, cloth, color plates on coated stock, heraldic emblems, this is the deluxe edition, in beautiful gilt cloth, top gilt, nice, a very fine copy, still in the publ's plain wrapper. Copies of this have become very scarce in recent years as interest in Randolph climbed after the biography of Deveney. Randolph (1825-1875) is an unbelievably interesting man, no work of fiction would be believable if it told his story. Born with the blood of a Madagascan queen in him, he was a sailor and barber who traveled all over the world researching the true origins of mankind. He married an Indian woman, studied spiritualism and magnetism (which he later partly recanted), practiced medicine without a license, was crowned 'supreme hierarchy' of the Rosicrucians, wrote and published many curious books, championed hashish (which he discovered in Paris), and the rights of women, who it seems had a particular attraction to Randolph. But for all this he committed suicide in 1875. His first son died of neglect and poverty, but a second son, Osiris Budh Randolph became a successful doctor. ("There is little doubt that this tormented man was a great lover, an unreliable husband, and a wretched father" -Joscelyn Godwin). Randolph is now best known for his sexual philosophy, that is his sex magic. He believed he had discovered the secret to sexual fluids and lectured publicly on this topic, for which he was arrested but later acquitted. But because of his death, his ethnicity and his sex magic, he has been nearly forgotten by the moderns, and the new agers, who in their supreme ignorance of all things deep, don't even know of him. Randolph was and is one of the most important of all 19th century occultists, his books were widely read and had influence on such groups as the HB of L, and on the likes of Hargraves Jennings and Blavatsky. The volume we offer here is his fictional account of travels in Europe, lecturing before Emperor Napoleon III, being initiated, and his early spiritual experiences among other things. See the chapter devoted to Randolph in Godwin's The Theosophical Enlightenment for a vivid portrait.
