TRAVELS OF JOHN DEE & EDWARD KELLEY
A Slide Lecture by Robin Cousins
27 April (Tuesday)
Treadwell’s Bookshop, London
7.15 pm for 7.30 start
John Dee, Elizabeth I’s astrologer and leading mathematician, was deeply involved with alchemy and angelic magic. The latter practices involved his scryer and best friend Edward Kelley. Dee and Kelley’s lives were filled with travel. Everywhere they went they got involved with princes, gold-making, angelic visitations, and hair-raising adventures.
Robin Cousins, a longterm student of Elizabethan magical philosophy, has visited a great many of these sites across Britain and Europe. His slide lecture takes us on their journeys, outlines their adventures, and explains their magical practices. The slides show original buildings, towns, manuscripts, and magical paraphernalia. Places illustrated include Mortlake-on-Thames, Manchester, Upton-on-Severn, Leadenham, Prague, Cracow, Trebon, Ceskykrumlov, Gilova, Most, and Krivoklat.
Robin Cousins has published variously on Dee and Kelley over the past fifteen years. He has an exceptionally intimate knowledge of their angelic system and its working methods, which he has been studying in depth for the past two decades.
After the slide lecture Robin will take questions and the group can discuss some of the themes raised. Wine and refreshments will then be served and at a soiree on the main shop floor.
Treadwell’s Bookshop is in Covent Garden district of Central London, five minutes’ walk from Covent Garden Tube. A map and directions are on our website. Admission is £5, and advance booking is advisable (by phone or email to Treadwell’s). Please arrive at 7.15 pm for a 7.30 start.
