The dust jacket has minimal shelfwear, and remains uncut. Published in Surrey, England by The Shrine of Wisdom, 1979. 88pp. Blue cloth decorated and titled in gilt. From the
publisher: "A collection of known fragments, translated, systematized and
with commentary, and presented as a cosmological system." The poetic
fragments are commonly attributed to 'Zoroaster,' but assigned by recent
scholarship to Julianus the theurgist, who lived during the third century CE.
The verses were considered of some importance within the Hermetic Order of the
Golden Dawn, and Crowley clearly made use of them when constructing his Liber
XXV (Ritual of the Star Ruby).
