A FINE COPY, bound in a deep Violet premium cloth, with embossed vignette on the front panel in gold as drawn by the author, custom gold end papers, head and tail bands, ribbon marker, and printed on a special text sheet in ivory. Sasha Chaitow's work opens a clear roadmap into Péladan’s initiatory teachings, and his philosophy on the esoteric power of art. Responding to multiple cultural shifts in fin-de-siècle French society, Péladan authored over a hundred novels and monographs in an attempt to bring about the spiritual regeneration of society through mytho-poetic art and esoteric thought. Illustrated by the author with nine original half-tone pen and ink drawings. With forewords by Dr. Christopher McIntosh, whose works are well known to many on this list, and Professor Per Faxneld of Södertörn University, Stockholm. 432 pages. Tall octavo.
