Book Description: Jonglez Publishing, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 188 x 107 mm. Brand New Book. Por que el escudo de Portugal tiene una inclinacion de 17 sobre la fachada de la estacion de Rossio? Donde se toco por primera vez La Flauta Magica y por que Mozart se la dedico a su maestro Cagliostro? Que es la teoria del quinto imperio portugues cuyos rastros percibimos por toda la ciudad? Donde encontrar los mas hermosos y reconditos azuleijos de la ciudad? Como y por que Lusitania se transformo en Portugal (Porto Grial), lugar de acogida del mitico Grial de Cristo? Por que el portico sur de los Jeronimos ha sido construido siguiendo unos principios cabalisticos hebraicos? Cuales son los simbolos escondidos del poliptico de san Vicente del Museo de Arte Antiguo? Quienes son en realidad esos sebastianistas que, cual musulmanes chiitas, esperan el regreso del escondido rey Dom Sebastian?Desde la Edad Media, Lisboa ha sido un lugar de especial predileccion para el desarrollo y aplicacion de las teorias de los reyes alquimistas, de ministros francmasones, de poetas ocultistas, de adeptos de lo hermetico y de los ocultos secretos de los Templarios que, en el siglo XIV, se refugiaron en Portugal tras su prohibicion en el resto de Europa. Vitor Manuel Adriao, famoso historiador y filosofo, es el heredero portugues de todos estos conocimientos esotericos. En esta verdadera guia iniciatica nos desvela por primera vez su saber inaudito y descifra de manera sorprendente los arcanos de una ciudad destinada, para algunos, a convertirse en la capital espiritual de Europa. Una guia excepcional.Why is the Portuguese coat of arms set at an angle of 17 on the facade of Rossio station? Where in Portugal was The Magic Flute played for the first time and why did Mozart dedicate it to his master Cagliostro? What is the theory concerning the fifth dynasty of Portugal, traces of which are found in the street layout? Where can you find the most beautiful azulejos secreted around the city? Why and how did Lusitania become Portugal (Porto Graal), the place harbouring the legendary Holy Grail? Where can you find the Lisboan serial killer s head preserved in formalin? Why was the south doorway of the Jeronimos Monastery designed according to Hebrew Kabbalistic principles? What symbols are concealed within the Saint Vincent polytych at the Museum of Antique Arts? Who in fact are the Sebastianists, messianic in the style of Shiite Muslims, awaiting the return of the lost King Sebastian?Since the Middle Ages Lisbon has been a favourite site for the development and application of the theories of alchemist kings, masonic ministers, occult poets, followers of hermeticism and the secret knowledge of the Knights Templar, who found refuge in Portugal after they were banned from the rest of Europe in the 14th century. Vitor Manuel Adriao, acclaimed historian and philosopher, is heir to all this esoteric knowledge in Portugal. Here for the first time he reveals his incredible knowledge in this truly initiatory guide, with a mind-boggling interpretation of the arcana of a city which some consider is on the way to becoming the spiritual capital of Europe.

Book Description: State University of New York Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book. This new edition of Christopher McIntosh s classic book on the Golden and Rosy Cross order is eagerly awaited. The order stands out as one of the most fascinating and influential of the high-degree masonic and illuminist groups that mushroomed in Europe from the 18th century onward. Active mainly in the German-speaking lands, it recast the original Rosicrucian vision and gave it renewed vitality. At one point it became politically influential when the Prussian King, Frederick William II, was a member of the order. Historians have often perceived the Golden and Rosy Cross as having had a conservative, anti-Enlightenment agenda, but this study drawing on rare German sources shows that the matter was more complex. The members of the order practiced alchemy and operated a degree system that was later imitated by later orders such as the Golden Dawn. Like the latter, the Golden and Rosy Cross exerted a wide and enduring cultural influence. Both the alchemy of the order and its powerful ritual system are insightfully described in Christopher McIntosh s clear and compelling style. Bookseller Inventory # AAW9781438435602

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 235 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. Jim Dent, author of the New York Times bestselling The Junction Boys, returns with his most powerful story of human courage and determination. More than a century ago, a school was constructed in Fort Worth, Texas, for the purpose of housing and educating the orphans of Texas Freemasons. It was a humble project that for years existed quietly on a hillside east of town. Life at the Masonic Home was about to change, though, with the arrival of a lean, bespectacled coach by the name of Rusty Russell. Here was a man who could bring rain in the midst of a drought. Here was a man who, in virtually no time at all, brought the orphans story into the homes of millions of Americans. In the 1930s and 1940s, there was nothing bigger in Texas high school football than the Masonic Home Mighty Mites--a group of orphans bound together by hardship and death. These youngsters, in spite of being outweighed by at least thirty pounds per man, were the toughest football team around. They began with nothing--not even a football--yet in a few years were playing for the state championship on the highest level of Texas football. This is a winning tribute to a courageous band of underdogs from a time when America desperately needed fresh hope and big dreams. The Mighty Mites remain a notable moment in the long history of American sports. Just as significant is the depth of the inspirational message. This is a profound lesson in fighting back and clinging to faith. The real winners in Texas high school football were not the kids from the biggest schools, or the ones wearing the most expensive uniforms. They were the scrawny kids from a tiny orphanage who wore scarred helmets and faded jerseys that did not match, kids coached by a devoted man who lived on peanuts and drove them around in a smoke-belching old truck. In writing a story of unforgettable characters and great football, Jim Dent has come forward to reclaim his place as one of the top sports authors in America today. A remarkable and inspirational story of an orphanage and the man who created one of the greatest football teams Texas has ever known . . . this is their story--the original Friday Night Lights. This just might be the best sports book ever written. Jim Dent has crafted a story that will go down as one of the most artistic, one of the most unforgettable, and one of the most inspirational ever. Twelve Mighty Orphans will challenge Hoosiers as the feel-good sports story of our lifetime. Naturally, being from Texas, I am biased. Hooray for the Mighty Mites. --Verne Lundquist, CBS Sports Coach Rusty Russell and the Mighty Mites will steal your heart as they overcome every obstacle imaginable to become a respected football team. Take an orphanage, the Depression, and mix it with Texas high school football, and Jim Dent has authored another winner, this one about the ultimate underdog. --Brent Musburger, ABC Sports/ESPN No state has a roll call of legendary high school football stories like we do in Texas, and, admittedly, some of those stories have been expanded over the years when it comes to the truth. But let Jim Dent tell you about the Mighty Mites of Masonic Home, the pride of Fort Worth in the dark days of the Depression. Read this book. You will think it s fiction. You will think it s a Hollywood script. But Twelve Mighty Orphans is the truth, and nothing but. It is powerful stuff. Some eighty years later, the Mighty Mites story remains so sacred, not even a Texan would dare tamper with these facts. And Jim Dent tells it like it was. -- Randy Galloway, columnist, Fort-Worth Star Telegram. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780312384876

Book Description: Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by William Bradford, Oct. 31, 1765., 1765. 4pp., bifolium. Text in three columns within mourning borders. Woodcut vignettes of skulls and crossbones, ships, and a coffin. Small hole in the first leaf, short edge tears, minor browning, but in near fine condition overall. In a folding cloth case. Provenance: Laird U. Park, Jr. (Sotheby's New York, Nov. 29, 2000, lot 269). The famous "tombstone edition" of THE PENNSYLVANIA JOURNAL issued in protest of the Stamp Act. The text is bordered in black, as in mourning, while the masthead is topped with a skull and crossbones and Masonic symbols. The text of this graphic issue of THE PENNSYLVANIA JOURNAL begins with a letter from Bradford announcing the suspension of publication due to the Stamp Act taking effect the following day: ".the publisher of this paper unable to bear the Burthen, has thought it expedient to stop a while, in order to deliberate, whether any Methods can be found to elude the Chains forged for us, and escape the unsupportable Slavery." Besides the tombstone front page and mourning borders, this issue includes text running vertically in the right margin of the front page reading: "Adieu, Adieu to the Liberty of the Press." In addition, a woodcut image of a coffin on the final page includes the epitaph: "The last Remains of The Pennsylvania Journal, Which departed this Life, the 31st of October, 1765, Of a Stamp in her Vitals." The Stamp Act of 1765 was the first British Parliamentary attempt to impose a direct tax on the American colonies, calling for all legal documents, permits, pamphlets, newspapers, and other publications to carry a tax stamp. Although the amount of the tax was relatively small, the Act raised the ire of the colonists who united in its opposition and raised the cry of "No taxation without representation." Intimidation and violence against the collectors made enforcement near impossible and the Act was repealed in March 1766. "The passage of the Stamp Act transformed American opposition to British policies.It was of enormous importance in that it produced at least a surface unity among the colonies, for almost every political leader, whatever his political principles, was opposed" - Jensen, THE FOUNDING OF A NATION. This issue of THE PENNSYLVANIA JOURNAL is quite scarce, with only this copy appearing in the auction records for the last quarter century. It realized $30,650 at the Laird Park sale in 2000.
