The Alchemical World of Edward Kelley

Theatrum Astronomiae Terrestris

£35.00

plus £4.5 uk postage

£6.80 Europe

£9.00 Rest of the world

 

In this, the latest of Robert Plimer's esoteric studies, he returns to alchemy (mineral) and puts forward a far more positive view of Sir Edward Kelley's theoretical and practical alchemical research than scholars and indeed practitioners of the Art have previously given him. In Part One of his book, Plimer deals with Kelley's much maligned and misunderstood place in the history and development of the alchemy. The book also investigates Kelley's connection with the Elizabethan Magus Dr. John Dee and their objectives in line with the infamous skrying episodes.

Part Two of the book, deals specifically with Kelley's text the 'Theatrum Astronomiae Terrestris' (The Theatre of 'Terrestrial Astronomy' - literally Alchemy), in which both Kelley's text and iconography are subjected to detailed alchemical deconstruction and analyses. The book makes a strong case for placing Kelley as a bridge between early 15th century (including Paracelsus) and the more developed 16th - 17th century alchemical practices (in particular those of Starkey and Newton).

 

Hardback limited edition (93 copies only).

480 pages of text and images taken from Kelley's 'Theatrum Astronomiae Terrestrial'

This second book in a series of four, deals with the teachings behind Hermetic texts from the 2nd to 3rd Century AD.

Specific attention is given to the methodology and practice behind the philosophical and 'spititual' development of the individual as detailed in the Hermetic Corpus. The other books in this series seek to engage the modern reader with an understanding of their position in relation to the Elements, Nature, Spirit, Kosmos, Soul, Mind and The One.
