New York, NY: Stein and Day, (1964). First US Edition, Second printing. Hardcover. Octavo. 300pp. Red cloth spine with gilt title, etc., black papered boards with blind publisher's device. An American edition of this work first published in English in 1963 as "The Dawn of Magic." It was "... the first book to explore in depth the Nazi fascination with the occult, Pauwels and Bergier also broke new ground with their study of pyramidology, alchemy and its close kinship with atomic energy, and the possibility of a widespread mutation of humanity that would herald the dawn of a new age for the earth. Their study of secret societies, starting with the Rosicrucians, suggests that such changes are actively being pursued in the present day by a “conspiracy” of the most spiritually and intellectually advanced members of the human race. 'The Morning of the Magicians' also explores the anomalous events collected by Charles Fort, the work of Gurdjieff, and the history of the mysterious Fulcanelli, who was widely believed to have manufactured the philosopher’s stone - which provided the Nazis the motive for mounting an intensive search for him during their occupation of Paris."
