Wellingborough UK: The Aquarian Press, 1983. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 318pp. Glossy printed wrappers. A volume in the "Roots of the Golden Dawn" series. From the publisher: "Amongst the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, William Wynn Westcott - physican, Freemason and scholar - was the one, true Rosicrucian who brought to the Order the body of occult theory that has proved to be its most significant legacy. For without the Hermetic and Kabalistic philosophy on which they are built, the Order's rituals are nothing. Much of Westcott's work, however, has remained unknown - hidden in obscure journals and among private Order papers. Now for the first time, the most important of these papers - on the Rosicrucians, Freemasonry, the Kabalah, Astrology and Hermetic Philosophy - are brought together in one volume to provide a true understanding of the living tradition that molded the Golden Dawn".
