Synopsis: This is a thorough presentatio of the Rosicrucian system of Initiation by Dr. Paul Foster Case. He explains that Rosicrucianism is based upon earthly organizations, but on personal unflodment, and clearly describes the distinctive marks of a Rosicrucian. The treatise is divided into two main parts by Dr. Case. The first is a careful examination and interpretation of the principle Rosicrucian maneifestos, the Fama Fraternitatis and the Confessio Fraternitatis. The second part is an explanation of the Rosicrucian Grade system, as applied to the diagram of the Tree of Life and Tarot attributions. By participating in the outlined procedures, aspirants are put on the right track of preparing themselves for union with the Higher Self, which may or may not include group work with an outer order or fraternity. The first editions of 1927, 1928 and 1933 were of limited publication. THe fourth and most complete expansion of the text by Paul Case ws finished in 1937, revised by him in 1953 just before his death , and published in hardcover by Weiser in 1985. It represents the full maturity of his thought on this subject.

Appendix. Afterwards.Index: General. Paul Foster Case was a musician and master of esoteric subjects. His knowledge of the symbolism of the Tarot deck is unsurpassed. Having published several books of the Tarot, he founded the esoteric order called the "Builders of the Adytum," which is still functioning today. Much tarot and quabalistic knowledge was passed down to students. I, myself was a member during the early 1960's when Ann Davies was head of the order. Case was a major player and influence of the esoteric scene and his career spanned over 30 years.
