Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks Series
This series of limited edition hand-bound books by Adam McLean were initially produced between 1979 and 1986. They were never sold through book dealers, but only by direct mail order. Consequently, these books became collectors items, often fetching high prices on the second-hand market. Only a few copies remain of some of the older titles in this series and a number are now entirely sold out. Since 1997 thirty new titles have been issued with more in preparation.
No. 36. On the Music of the Spheres by Robert Fludd.
Translated by Paul Ferguson
With an Introduction by Adam McLean
In this important work Fludd explores the geometrical proportions found in the cosmos and their relationship to the ratios between musical intervals. To Fludd and others exploring these matters in the 17th century, the harmonies of musical intervals reflected the greater harmonies found in the Cosmos, truly the music of the spheres.
Limited edition of 200 signed and numbered hardbound copies. Black and white illustrations. A5. 59 pages.
Includes a CD-Rom with performances of Fludd's original compositions.
