The Magick & Alchemy of Dr. John Dee & Edward Kelley

Friday 8th December 2017, 7pm to 9pm

A talk by Dr. Robert Anderson Plimer on the Magick & Alchemy of Dr. John Dee & Sir Edward Kelley, plus a signing of his new book: The Alchemical World of Edward Kelley Theatrum Astronomiae Terrestris.

Bob’s presentation will mainly focus on the background and relationship between Dee (the Magus) and Kelley (the Alchemist). Along with a decoding of the alchemical text, Bob will provide an overview of the iconography presented in Kelley’s Theatrum, he will also touch upon the skrying episodes (‘A True and Faithful Relation of what passed for many years between Dr. John Dee and some Spirits’) and the Hermetic background to the period in general.

Bob (a member of various esoteric societies) has written several books on Hermeticism and Alchemy, he teaches and lectures regularly on a wide range of esoteric themes. Bob will be glad to talk to practitioners of the Arts and those who have a general interest in the occult.

Otherworld Books is very keen to accommodate talks, workshops and discussion groups. In due course we aim to refurbish the downstairs area for just this purpose, so watch this space!

In the meantime (and even thereafter) the shop floor itself is beautifully situated to host any of these types of activities outside of normal business hours. If you would be interested in organising an event at Otherworld, please get in touch.
