THE PARADOXICAL EMBLEMS OF DIONYSIUS ANDREAS FREHER.
Glasgow: 1983. D. A. Freher was one of the most important of those who worked and followed in the stream of mysticism initiated by Jacob Boehme. He had a gift for illustrating mystical ideas in pictorial form, and he applied this to Boehme's work in creating a series of 'Paradoxical Emblems', consisting of 153 emblematic diagrams each bearing a short line of text. Though prepared in the early 18th century for publication, regrettably they never appeared in print. These emblems are a coherent integrated system of interior exercises. Each of these focusses on a simple fundamental spiritual statement, of which Freher gives us the essence in a picture for us to meditate upon. The sequence of 153 emblems begins with Emblem 1 the point everywhere in empty space and the maxim of Hermes Trismegistus "The Center of Centres is everywhere, the Circumference is nowhere", and ends with emblem 152-3 "All things were, are and will Be, out of the One, through One and to One" Limited edition of 250 copies signed, dated and numbered by Adam McLean; Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks No. 16; Hand-Bound in simulated brown leather with gilt spine title; Edited from Ms. Add. 5789 in British Library with an Introduction by Adam McLean; 170 pages. Cloth bound in near very good condition except for spine being slightly skewed.
