Megatherion: The Magickal World of Aleister Crowley (Revised) (New)
by King, Francis
Book ID: 9781840681802, 1840681802
Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) has been seen variously as a man of notorious sexual habits, a satanic occultist, and latterly an icon of the 1960s love generation.
But Crowley was neither a mere sexual predator nor a vulgar black magician. He was the synthesizer of what he termed "Magick," a complex system of occult philosophy and technique outlined in such classic texts as The Book Of The Law and Magick In Theory And Practice. Crowley's vision combined clarity, intellectual power and a strange, sometimes frightening, beauty.In this cogent and intensely readable account of Crowley's life and occult progress, Francis King examines each of the three main sources of Magick - thus throwing much new light on Crowley himself, and doing much to explain the continuing admiration for his writings which has been displayed by individuals as diverse as occultists, film directors from Kenneth Anger to Donald Cammell, and rock musicians such as Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page.
Includes 12 pages of photographs, and a new appendix with two rare Crowley essays on narcotics: "The Great Drug Delusion" and "The Drug Panic."

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
