About this Item

A very rare work by the great British Neoplatonist and neopagan, one of only 250 copies printed. Practicing what he preached, he was said to have sacrifices goats to the gods and poured libations to Zeus. Taylor's influence on the romantic and metaphysical poets of his day, as well as the American transcendentalists was immeasurable: Blake, Shelly, Wordsworth, and Emerson all hymned his praises, whereas Disraeli was one of many who condemned his paganism (most bitingly in his novel VAURIEN, and again in his CURIOSITIES OF LITERATURE). This, his penultimate book, is one of his rarest publications, and one of his most personal: he named his last-born son Thomas Proclus Taylor. Rebacked, with the original spine label preserved.
