ALEISTER CROWLEY

SIR PALAMEDES 

 THE HIGH HISTORY OF THE GOOD SIR PALAMEDES

AND OF HIS FOLLOWING OF THE QUESTING BEAST

 

 

     The latest book in our series is a new edition of Aleister Crowley’s The High History of the Good Sir Palamedes and of His Following of the Questing Beast.  Available in a very limited hand-bound edition of only 150 copies.     
  

 

 

   

 

     “Sir Palamedes was the most ambitious attempt to describe the Path of the Wise as I knew it.  It is in its way almost complete, but there is no attempt to show the necessary sequence of the ordeals described in each section.  The last section, in which Sir Palamedes, after achieving every possible task and finding that all his attainments did not bring him to the end of his Quest, abandons the following of the Questing Beast; he returns, discomfited, to the Round Table, only to find that, having surrendered, the Questing Beast comes to him of its own accord.

                            — ALEISTER CROWLEY

                                          The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

 

 


 

     Aleister Crowley’s Sir Palamedes is a poetic account of the Great Work and was first published in September 1910 as a Special Supplement to The Equinox, Volume I, No. 4.  Crowley considered Sir Palamedes to be his most ambitious attempt to describe the Path of the Wise.  At the suggestion of his friend and mentor, Allan Bennett, he decided to compose the work using the form of the classic literature describing the quest.
 
 


 

     Each book is bound by hand and measures 9” x 8".  144 pages.  Printed in blue and black on a high quality 70 pound text weight, acid-free Mohawk Via felt paper specifically chosen for this edition.  The cover consists of a glued-up composition of embossed fabric and 65 pound Neenah Astrobrights paper.  The spine incorporates rough-sawn cedar strips with the book itself being bound with two copper rivets.  The text is set in a combination of Argos A Nouveau and Nyala fonts.  Decorative graphics are featured throughout the book.

 

     As an added bonus, each book comes with a hand-bound copy of Crowley's The Chymical Jousting of Brother Perardua.”
