Francis King – Ritual Magic In England: 1887 To The Present Day (NEL, Dec. 1972)
From medieval times to modern day, the practices of magic and alchemy have been in the hands of some of the greatest occultists of our times.
The secret rites and conflicts have remained the sole knowledge of each cult, never to be seen by the outside world.
Now Francis King relates those secrets and conflicts, including the struggles of Aleister Crowley and W.B. Yeats within the infamous Order of The Golden Dawn; the goat-sacrificing mediums of Keighley, the left-handed Bengali Tantricists and the sexual magic of an American Mulatto.
