1) Research Project. I wonder if anyone living in Edinburgh, Scotland
would be willing to assist in some research for an occult publishing
project. It would require visiting an archive in that town, viewing a
manuscript and taking some notes

2) Three New Books by and about Austin Osman Spare

Austin Osman Spare, Book of Satyrs, IHO 2005 Paperback (10ins x 7.5ins)
30pp Facsimile of the 1907 First Edition, also reproducing the extra
plate and the variant preliminary pages of the 1909 edition. Some of
Spares very striking early work including at least three self portraits.
Aside from the Introduction by James Guthrie there is no text but Spares
youthful fire and venom seethes through as he protrays such as the
Church, Fashion, Officialism etc. However, the images are complex and have
multifaceted symbolism which is often enigmatic and intruiging details.
The title is very apt, the pictures being far more than just satires
New Order No. 110132 £4.99

Austin Osman Spare, Earth Inferno, IHO 2005 Paperback (10ins x 7.5ins)
30pp Facsimile of Spares first book. Remarkable work published when
Spare was only 19 and is effectively a mandala of words and images which
is a remarkable statement of his philosophy. It describes the circuit of
birth to death exploring the themes of the Despair, the Chaos of the
Normal, the Dweller on the Threshold, Life’s Nightmare, Knowledge and
Illusion. Whilst being enigmatic rather than clumsy and explicit, he does
imply that these dramas revolve around around Zod Kia’s dominion (the
Unconscious?) within which lies Kia, or One (Enlightenment?). However,
any attempt to describe the work is an injustice! New Order No. 110131
£4.99

Dr. William Wallace, Austin Osman Spare, The Artist’s Books, IHO 2005
Paperback (10ins x 7.5ins) xiii + 442pp + 16pp glossary & Bibliography
Illustrated. A Substantial investigation of the cultural & occult
background of the books, and then a detailed examination of the symbolism &
references in the pictures. He argues that the Alphabet of Desire
relates to Enochian. He discusses such influences as Blake, Dante, Nietsche,
Crowley of course, Kabbala, Alchemy, Ancient Egypt etc. As he examines
each picture in turn even those who disagree with some of his
conclusions will admire the window openes upon the wealth of symbolism in
Spare’s work. New Order No. 110133 £29.95

Austin Osman Spare, Stealing The Fire From Heaven, Edited and compiled
by A.R.Naylor, IHO 2002 10ins x 7ins 237pp Hansomely printed in four
colours, many illustrations. A remakable piece of detective work by the
editor throws a remarkable light upon the work of Spare. He was a thief!
Many of the decorations he claimed to have designed were in fact copied
from the work of others! There is speculation that a reaslisation of
this may have been the true reason for Spare’s withdrawal from the
artistic establishment. However the Editor also recovers some work which
Spare published under a pseudonymn, and restores it to the corpus of known
Spare work. Twelve Poems, by W.B. Yeats, is reprinted wit h the
illustartions know known to be by Spare. The Grotesque, by Edmund Sullivan is
also reprinted with the Spare illustrations. Also presented is Twelve
Poems by J.C. Squire supposedly illustrated and decorated by Spare but
now seen in a very different light. These discoveries do not affect the
occult significane of Spare’s work, however they may throw interesting
light upon it! As if to reaffirm Spare’s importance in this field the

Osman Spare supplied the designs for the illuminated letters which were cut

Illuminated letters may have contributed to his development of the
Alphabet of Desire. Some of the designs Spare supplied for the illuminated
letters are of his own design (the ‘A’ and ‘O’ being striking imaged of
naked writhing mermaids), a satyr design is influenced by a Rennaisance
design whilst some are wholly copied from Rennaisance designs. Curiously
