This First Night of the Prophet and his Bride Poster is helpful propaganda from the Hermetic Library Office of the Ministry of Information … for this Thelemic Holy Day in Anno V0. This is the anniversary of the first night Aleister Crowley and Rose Edith Kelly spent together when they were married on August 12, 1903 EV.
“Ray Sherwin performs The Spinning Mantra from the funerary stele of Ankh af na Khonsu. Recorded at The Hermitage in 1990. The stele was exhibit number 666 at The Bulaq (French, Beautiful Lake) Museum in Cairo when Rose Edith Kelly pointed it out to Aleister Crowley in 1904.”
“Aleister Crowley inscribed an Equinox for his lawyer, E.S.P.Haynes. Haynes handled Crowley’s divorce from his first wife, Rose Kelly in 1909.”
This particular image shows a volume of The Equinox is Vol I No III. I’ve added stubs for both Rose Edith Kelly and Edmund Sidney Pollock Haynes to the Hermeneuticon Wiki each with links to this image.
The Hermetic Library visual pool is a visual scavenger hunt for images of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.
Images of your ritual or ritual space, images of sigils or tools, showing off your own library or special volume from the restricted stacks, sacred spaces and places, esoteric artefacts and installations, inspired paintings and people – these and much more are part of the culture and practice of magick.
