Weiser Antiquarian Books Catalogue #126

Written by LAShTAL. Posted in Occult.

Wow! Just wow...

Weiser Antiquarian Books Catalogue # 126

Israel Regardie and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
Used and Rare Books. (Part II)

Welcome to this, the one-hundred-and-twenty-sixth of our on-line catalogues. This catalogue is the second of two devoted to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as well as various of its offshoots including the Independent and Rectified Order R.R. et A.C., the Fellowship of the Rosy Cross, and the Stella Matutina. The catalogue also includes a good selection of works by one of the most famous initiates of the Stella Matutina, Israel Regardie, whose experience within that Order led to the publication of his landmark compilation, The Golden Dawn, An Account of the Teachings, Rites, and Ceremonies of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and was reflected in many of his own writings.

The majority of the books are from the library of a well-known English book-collector who is downsizing due to chronic lack of shelf (and floor) space. The collection includes many of the standard studies of the Golden Dawn, historical, theoretical and practical, by a variety of well-known authors including R. A. Gilbert, Ellic Howe, R. A. Torrens, Chic & Tabatha Cicero, Darcy Kuntz, Pat Zalewski, and others, as well as various works by members of the original Order. Aside from mostly being in pristine condition, the books are distinguished by the fact that many are signed or inscribed by their authors or editors.


Kenneth Anger, Aleister Crowley, and Egyptology at the Petrie Museum

Lecture on Kenneth Anger, Aleister Crowley, and Egyptology at the Petrie Museum

Thursday 6 November 2014

In October 2013 Ethan Doyle White attended the UCL conference on Monstrous Antiquities: Archaeology and the Uncanny in Popular Culture, and presented a paper on the subject of Archaeology and Occultism in the Work of Kenneth Anger. In this he examined how the renowned American experimental film-maker utilised past societies in proselytizing for the occult religion of Thelema, founded in 1904 by the (in)famous British esotericist Aleister Crowley. In doing so, Anger made repeated use of archaeological material, particularly that associated with Ancient Egypt, and thus much of his ouevre represents a fascination avant-garde example of what has usually been termed 'Egyptomania'.

Ethan has been invited to give a lecture on this subject for the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology in Bloomsbury, Central London, as part of their Petrie Film Club Presents series.

Scheduled for Thursday 6 November at 6pm, Ethan will be introducing a screening of Anger's seminal film Lucifer Rising (1980), an exposition of Thelemite theology that was filmed at such archaeological sites as Luxor, Karnak, Avebury, and Externsteine.

Written by Frater Puck. Posted in Thelema.


We refuse to believe there is just ONE Carl Abrahamsson!  With all he gets done, there must be at least three!  Feel shame as Carl explains how he gets more done in a week than you do in a year, seriously. Writing, publishing, a digital label... it's in a day's work. Enjoy!

Quote of the Moment

I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.
