Frederick Carter and D H Lawrence

Frederick Carter analyses the symbols and apocalyptic images of 'The Revelation of Saint John the Divine' from the point of view of the Astrologer.

'The Dragon of Revelation' was first published in 1931 and later released in 1934 under the new title 'Symbols of Revelation' -- the latter edition included several additional illustrations which are included in this new work.

This is the first publication of Lawrence's Introduction and Carter's book together as originally planned for publication in 1929.

Lawrence's stimulating introduction was one of the last things written by him before his death. He had long been interested in Carter's theory of symbols in Revelation, but was unable to complete a much longer version due to ill-health.

The present work includes Carter's letter to the London Mercury (September 1930) regarding Lawrence's Introduction and the complete text of Carter's book 'D H Lawrence and the Body Mystical'.

"The Dragon of Revelations deals with Carter's ideas concerning symbolism and the Book of Revelation. As one would expect from a close colleague of Austin Osman Spare, these are occult. They have certainly been seen as relevant to Thelemic ideas of the new Aeon. 93 Publishing republished similar material by Carter. Lawrence has been associated with a neo-pagan resurgence and a rejection of oppressive morality. He was associated with the Mandrake Press (1929) and some have assumed some connection with Crowley . . . but the relationship with Carter appears far more substantial, and this excellent publication provides the reader with the material to explore this. It is elegantly produced with wide margins, coloured inks and decorated capitals ." Caduceus Books

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...
