FRABATO THE MAGICIAN - Franz Bardon, 1982 OCCULT MAGIC HERMETIC NAZIS REICH
FRABATO THE MAGICIAN
Book Details + Condition: Dieter Ruggeberg (Wuppertal, W. Germany), 1979. Softcover, 206 pages. Though cast in the form of a novel, "Frabato the Magician" is in fact the spiritual autobiography of Franz Bardon, one of the greatest Hermetic adepts of the 20th century. Frabato was the author's stage name during his career as a performing magician, and it is Frabato who takes center stage in the novel as well. Set in Dresden, Germany, in the early 1930s, the story chronicles Frabato's magical battles with the members of a powerful and dangerous black lodge, his escape from the Weimar Republic, and the beginning of the spiritual mission which was to culminate in Franz Bardon's classic books on Hermetic magic. More than an occult novel, Frabato the Magician is itself a work of magic which illuminates Bardon's other books as well as providing a revealing look into the dark occult forces behind the rise of the Third Reich. Softcover is in very good condition, with tight binding; rubbed edges; light shelf wear; interior is clean and free of markings.
