Commentary on the Chymical Wedding - Knight & McLean


In the early 1980s British occultists Gareth Knight and Adam McLean collaborated to make and publish an edition of the Rosicrucian classic in English translation. This absolutely charming  -- and extremely rare -- limited edition is the result. McLean made his name as a specialist in alchemy, and Knight was long involved in the Society of the Inner Light, the magical order founded by Dion Fortune. This copy is from the library of the late London occultists Jean Williams and Zachary Cox. Full title: Commentary of the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz.
