Sexual Magic.

New York, NY: Magickal Childe, 1988. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Large Octavo. xxxii +142pp (ipp advert). Frontis, b&w illustrations, appendices. This copy INSCRIBED & SIGNED by the Editor, Robert North, under his name on the title page: "To .... Many thanks for your help w/ my books, Robert North". This work is attributed to Paschal Beverly Randolph (1825-1875) , one of the pioneers of Rosicrucianism in America. The text is based on a work, Magia Sexualis, published in Paris in 1931, that claimed to be a reprint of a clandestinely distributed work for Randolph's European students. In reality it seems to have been assembled from a number of his published writings, plus some additional material, the origin of which is disputed. Although some have called the book fraudulent, it clearly is comprised largely of Randolph's material and is an important collection. Robert North (1951 - 2010) is perhaps best known for this translation Randolph’s "Sexual Magic" and as a former O.T.O. member who founded his own magical order "The New Flesh Palladium" and as author of the book of the same title. Very light chafing to edges - otherwise a solid, bright Very Good copy. Now scarce. Item #52665
