Germany: Theion Publishing, 2019. Limited Hand-numbered Edition of 54 copies only, and the exclusive David Beth piece written to accompany the volume and bound in wrappers, signed, and laid in the rear of the volume. A FINE COPY, hand-bound in full antique-Bordeaux leather, with raised bands, embossed front and rear panels, ribbon marker, custom end papers, in a fine slipcase. The Special Auric Edition only includes a special essay by David Beth entitled “Katabasis and Eroto-Gnosis: A Short Consideration.” This piece was composed exclusively for this publication and is signed by the author. Klages' work is a milestone in the revival of a global pagan Gnosis, and has deeply influenced thinkers such as Walter Benjamin and Hermann Hesse who said that “in the pages of this book, "On the Cosmogonic Eros", the nearly unspeakable has been forged into words’. This first English edition, translated from the German by Mav Kuhn, also features a contextualized introduction by Professor Paul Bishop [University of Glasgow], and the first-ever English translation of parts of Alfred Schuler’s esoteric talks on the nature and essence of the spiritual light directly relevant to this volume. Schuler, who formed the core of the Kosmiker-Kreis with Klages, was a magician and mystagogue whose oracular language and visions provided much of the esoteric symbolism in Klages’ work. Black & white illustrations and photo reproduction. Splendid and informative annotations. 269 pages. Royal octavo. (Item ID: T-EROd)
