Description

During the course of his creative life Spare produced more than two thousand drawings, watercolors and pastels. His exhibitions ranged from the fashionable West End of Edwardian London, to the earthy taverns of post-War Southwark. This volume gathers together his very rare exhibition catalogues: from his first show at the Bruton Galleries in 1907, to his last at the Archer Gallery in 1955. These facsimiles present a wealth of scarce information, including: I. Commentaries by Austin Spare. II. Essays from Kenneth Grant, Dennis Bardens, Grace E. Rogers, John Smith, Oswell Blakeston, G.S. Sandilands and others. III. Lists of pictures exhibited, each with a catalogue number, often with prices. IV. The dates and locations for his shows. These exhibition catalogues are illustrated with 64 pages of color plates, carefully selected to represent the evolution of Spare's work between 1902-1956, and the various styles he moved through during this period. The original catalogues are also augmented with an introduction by Robert Ansell and several useful appendices, including: 1. Signatures and Monograms of the artist, 1902-1956. 2. Notes on Framing by Austin O. Spare (1947). 3. Inventory of Pictures remaining at 5 Wynne Road, 1956. 4. Decorated Objects. There is also a comprehensive index, which lists alphabetically more than 2000 picture titles for Spare's output 1907-1955, denoting exhibition, date and catalogue number for each. This substantial volume represents an invaluable and essential resource for collectors of his AOS's work.

Bound in a rich gray cloth, with custom end papers, with dust jacket. 320+ pages with eighty color plates. Royal Octavo. Limited Edition of 700 copies only, and not to be reprinted.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
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...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) 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...
