The Book Of Pleasure Or Self Love

The Book Of Pleasure Or Self Love Cover

Book: The Book Of Pleasure Or Self Love by Austin Osman Spare

The Book of pleasure (Self-Love), Psychology of Ecstasy is a book written by Austin Osman Spare during 1909-1913. The book could be regarded the central text among his writings. It covers both mystical and magical aspects of Spare's ideas; as the modern ideas on Sigils (as now have become popular among Chaos Magic) and Spare's special theory on incarnation are for the first time introduced in this book.
There are some chapters in The Book of pleasure that Spare has referred to them within the text, but are omitted. It seems that they were destroyed during World War II. The book had originally been planned as a mutus liber of illustrations only -"the Wisdom without words", but expanded later.
