Books - The Tree of Life by Israel Regardie


 This book is a first edition Tree of Life, published in 1932 by Reider and Co.

Signed by Israel Regardie to John Thomas Head, who was Regardie's friend and magical collaborator.

In very good condition without dust jacket. Binding is very tight.The book is well preserved for its age.This is a fantastic book for anyone into Ceremonial Magick, Qabalah, Aleister Crowley, or The Golden Dawn. I believe this one of the best books Israel Regardie ever wrote, and one of the best books ever written on Magick. Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an occultist, author and one time secretary to the legendary Aleister Crowley. As an adept of the now defunct secret order known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, he became infamous among the occultists of his day for breaking his oath of secrecy and publishing the order's complete rituals in his book "The Golden Dawn". Regardie continued with his occult studies and already established as a co-author, published the first of his own books A Garden of Pomegranates and The Tree of Life in 1932. The first contained his Qabalistic studies and was based on research and knowledge gleaned from various sources. The Tree of Life however was based on the teachings of the Golden Dawn, which had ceased to exist in 1903. When published it caused a lot of excitement among the occult elite and was considered one of the most complete and understandable texts on practical magic ever written.
