Originally published in 1887 in an edition of only 100 copies, this Limited Edition facsimile reprint was published in 1976. W. Wynn Westcott's study of the Isiac Tablet, a supposedly ancient Egyptian artefact that was sold to Cardinal Bembo by a soldier in 1527. The tablet is made of bronze, and is covered with representations of Egyptian deities and hieroglyphs, and was said to have been part of the temple of Isis (hence the verb "Isiac"). It attracted the attention of writers on esoteric subjects from Athanasius Kircher through to Eliphas Levi, all of whose opinions were recorded and examined by Westcott in his study. Westcott was of course one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the fraternity in which Aleister Crowley got his early magical training, and which had such a profound influence on his own occult career. Manly Palmer Hall (1901 - 1990) who brought out this new edition, was a Canadian-born occultist, mystic and author best known for his "The Secret Teaching of All Ages." He gathered together a world renowned collection of books and manuscripts on alchemy, mysticism, the occult, etc. which became part of the library of an organisation he founded in 1934, the Philosophical Research Society, and himself wrote over a hundred books and pamphlets on the esoteric subjects.
