APOCALYPSE IN ENGLAND: A Critical Study of Frederick Carter. Forthcoming in May; Reservations Being Accepted.

London: Jesusalem Press, 2024. Limited to 400 Copies Only, each copy hand-numbred. A FINE COPY, sewn, splendid color plate section, with illustrated endpapers, tailbands, foil-blocked boards and an illustrated dust jacket. Over 300 black & white images. Inserts include a facsimile of Carter’s ex-libris, and signed by the author. An exploration of the life and art of a neglected and fascinating artist, who mixed with key figures of the British Occult and Decadent milieu, most notably, Austin Osman Spare and Arthur Machen, who he often worked with. The volume features unprecedented access to the artist/writer’s rich personal archive of diaries, memoirs, sketchbooks, and artworks, and provides first-hand encounters with many figures from the esoteric London circles of Bohemian artists, writers, publishers and intellectuals, including a dinner party with Aleister Crowley, which ends in a venomous spat between the Beast and his jilted lover; a visit to Austin Spare to meet W.H. Davies, the Welsh poet, and a drug experiment with George Raffalovich, Crowley’s friend and disciple, who provided the chart entitled "Traditions and Books Commonly Called the Qabalah", in our Holmes monograph, "The Essence of the Practical Qabalah" by Frater Achad. Richly-illustrated throughout with unpublished examples of Carter’s exquisite line-drawings, etchings of London, and mystical woodcuts. 380 pages. Tall octavo. Item #J-AE

Price: $85.00
