UK: First Impressions, 1992. A FINE COPY. Introduction by Professor Roger Cardinal, the renowned Surrealist scholar. For the first time, Spare's art is analyzed for its hidden symbolism, a symbolism so rich in the traditions of esoteric knowledge. This knowledge was used to veil and declare a subtle, vibrant magic-a glimpse into another realm. Dr. Wallace and Mr. Naylor have spent the better part of three years in the preparation of this work and their discoveries will be the cornerstone of Spare studies for a long time. One finds a continuity in Austin Osman Spare's work that would indicate magickal links joining paintings from one period with those of a later time. These are important reference points in his intense, unknown life, yet they are also the keys to his personal magic and philosophical concepts thus far only surmised. 488 pages, folio. Cloth edition with marbled end papers. Numerous scarce Spare drawings and illustrations. (Item ID: INF2)
