Caduceus Books – Esoteric Magazines

      No Comments on Caduceus Books – Esoteric Magazines

The latest list from Caduceus Books includes the usual wide range of titles and enormous amount of bibliographic and historical information.

This time, though, the list is restricted – apart from an original Austin Osman Spare drawing – to esoteric journals, magazines and the like.

Judging by the eBay habits of several LAShTAL.COM members, this list is going to prove very popular! As usual, I reproduce the entire list below. I do this for the benefit of members of LAShTAL.COM – I have no financial or other interest in Caduceus Books. I have, however, purchased many items from them over the years and have always found them to be courteous and very reasonable.

I should mention once again that I am very happy to provide this same publicity service for other sellers of Thelemic items.

2) Austin Osman Spare drawing for sale
Drawing of a Satyr. Pencil on paper, 20ins x 13ins,. Paper is slightly discoloured around the edges from age. Small mark above Spare’s initials. There are two small pinholes in the paper, perhaps where Spare rather casually fixed it to his studio wall. It may have been there where it acquired some unobtrusive green pastel or crayon marks.The satyr is a fine example of a Spare nude, female torsos can be seen below him and a faintly drawn female figure can just be discerned in fron to him #1800

Various, The Occult Review, remarkable journal published by Rider and edited by Ralph Shirley, commenced in 1905 and continued into the Second World War. The premier occult journal reflects the prominent manifestations of occultism of the day. It is very interesting to see currents and groups and authors known today in a contempory context. The adverts too can be of interest. During the second two decades of the century there was a US edition (often in blue rather than the usual brick red wraps) which appeared a month after the UK edition which can lead to confusion as to when an article appears. The following copies are from the collection of Hereward Carrington.
