King Over the Water, by Nick Farrell

Samuel Mathers and the Golden Dawn

Reviewed by Peregrin

[Snip] One of the selling points of this wonderful work is printed boldly on the back cover:

This is the first history of the [Golden Dawn] Order written by someone who uses the system and understands what this group was attempting.

And indeed, this is so. Mr Farrell has produced something unique here: a brilliant mixture of solid reporting of historical information combined with an experienced magician’s insights and publication of original documents.

The book is divided into two parts. Part one is a history of the Order and particularly Samuel Mathers. Part two focuses on selected Golden Dawn teachings, original documents and learned commentaries. The book is therefore a gold mine for any and all students of magic, the GD or anyone interested in the western mystery traditions. It has something for everyone, and everyone will be enriched for purchasing it.
