About this Item: Robert H. Fryer, Bath, England, 1897. First Edition. Softcover. Small quarto (8 1/8 x 6 1/2 inches). 102pp. (+iipp. - eratta) Original buff colored printed wrappers. Edition limited to 100 numbered copies. The first part of this work (actually an independent text) attributed to the famous Comte was translated by P. A. Gent as "Sub-mundanes; or, The Elementaries of the Cabala: being the History of Spirits, Reprinted from the text of the Abbe de Villars, Physio-Astro-Mystic ." with the alternate title "The Count of Gabalis, or, The Extravagant Mysteries of the Cabalists Exposed, in Five Pleasant Discourses on the Secret Sciences." It was privately published by Robert H. Fryer in 1886. On the strength of a glowing recommendation of the text by the Rosicrucian scholar Hargrave Jennings, Yarker decided to translate the second part into English. According to Yarker this second part "is metaphysical . and covers some witty satire upon the more extravagant doctrines of the Sectaries of the 17th century. It turns almost entirely upon the physics of Giordano Bruno and René Descartes ." Yarker (1833-1913), was an active Freemason, with an interest in the esoteric, who attracted controversy by promoting degrees which he said predated those of regular Freemasonry, and in particular devoted himself to the revitalization of the Rites of Memphis and Mizraim. His work drew the attention of, and arguably had influence upon, some members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Both Theodur Reuss and Aleister Crowley were personally acquainted with Yarker, and the former reviewed his works with uncharacteristic fervor in "The Equinox" series. The paper spine of this volume - and others in the series - typically flakes away, which probably accounts for their rarity. In this case someone has reinforced the spine with clear tape (now browned) which extends about 3/8th of an inch onto the front and back wrappers. A few chips to the tape, the wrappers are intact save for a sliver missing from the bottom point of the front wrapper, and just a little browned. Tiny "dog-ears" to bottom points of first few leaves. Overall a VG copy of a very fragile and scarce work. Seller Inventory # 60025

About this Item: N.P.,, The Hague:, 1718. First Edition.. Collation: ?1,A-L8. Pagination: [2],176p. Contemp. sheep, banded spine, gilt, gilt title on red morocco label, rubbed. Illustrations: Engraved printer?s mark on t.p. Androl is only known from this sequel to the Gablais. ?There was a 1718 continuation entitled Les genies assistans. This 1718 text mostly seems to take issue with the Cathlicism of Villar?s La suite and also has little relation to the original Gabalis. Authorship of this 1718 text is disputed, but it may have been by Antoine Androl.? [Bonnie Latimer ?Alchemies of satire: A history of sylphs in The Rape of the Lock. In Review of Eng. Studies, 2006.]Villars, Nicholas Pierre Henri, Abbé de Mountfaucon's (1635-73) work is on demonology and the occult sciences of the Rosicrucians written in the style of a dialogue. It was an attack against such sciences and appealed to common sense. But Villars revealed the secrets of the Rosicrucians. "In spite of its satirical character The Count of Gabalis awoke an interest in the occult, so much so that it is believed by some that Villars intended to promote Paracelsian magic than to destroy it. Only a few years after the appearance of the book, however, its author was murdered by the Rosicrucians, it is said, to avenge his indiscretion and mockery. Citations: STCN 171808. Coumont M84.15.

About this Item: Chez Claude Barbin, 1670. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Condition: Muy bien. 1ª Edición. Paris. 1670. 16X10. Piel, nervios y dorados. 3h+327Pág+2h. Clasico Rosacruces. Raríssima obra del Comte de Gabalis, La obra contiene cinco conversaciones entre un narrador, escépticos de la magia y las artes relacionadas, y un misterioso conde de Gabalis, un maestro de "las ciencias secretas". El ejemplar habla en particular sobre las cuatro clases de seres espirituales-sílfides, ninfas, gnomos y salamandras que habitaron los cuatro elementos de aire, agua, tierra y fuego, respectivamente, e instó a su anfitrión, no sólo para ponerse en contacto con estos seres, sino hasta instar a uno de ellos en el matrimonio. El autor anónimo de este texto fue Nicolas Pierre Henri de Montfaucon de Villars, natural de el sur de Francia que fue asesinado cuando se dirigía a Lyon en 1673. El mismissimo Rembrant pinto en una de sus grandes obras al Comte de Gabalis, Le Cavalier Polonais. Obra muy apreciada de ocultismo por su gran controversia. Magnifico ejemplar. Ref 9.7 Biblioteca A.
