☯ Full Synopsis : "This remarkable book details the work of one of the most extraordinary publishing enterprises in history. Censor-baiting, provocative, simultaneous publisher of the literary elite and of 'dirty books', Jack Kahane's Obelisk Press published Henry Miller, Anaïs Nin, Lawrence Durrell, D. H. Lawrence, and James Joyce among others. At the same time Kahane subsidised his literary endeavours with cheap erotica and trash fiction from long-forgotten eccentrics such as New York Daily News' Rome correspondent and self-styled 'Marco Polo of Sex' N. Reynolds Packard. Kahane's business model was simple: if a book was banned in the UK and US it could be profitably published in Paris. Here, for the first time, Neil Pearson has pulled together the incendiary story of Obelisk, including biographies of Kahane and his major and minor authors, and a bibliography of Obelisk books. This beautifully written volume - part cultural history, part reference book - will be required reading for anyone interested in controversial writing, censorship, 1920s Paris, publishing history and authors such as Miller, Joyce and Nin."Article| Neil Pearson| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Dating from the beginning of historical memory, the obelisks of ancient Egypt—those tall, tapering shafts typically weighing from 200 to 500 tons—were carved from a single block of solid stone to commemorate the ruler of the moment. Many of these ancient monoliths, taken from Egypt as trophies of conquest and symbols of power through the efforts of extraordinary human labor and engineering ingenuity, were re-established in the capitals and seats of empire that also inherited Egypt’s burden of civilization. While near the climax of their historical potency, obelisks were erected by Alexandria, Nineveh, Constantinople, Rome, Paris, London, New York, etc. Fascinating as obelisks are as tracers of world history, the methods by which they have been moved and raised from ca. B.C. 1500 to A.D. 1880 (when the New York obelisk was raised) are more interesting still, and this epic history and associated engineering feats are encapsulated in this volume. The book records information, as far as we have it, on the building of the pyramids and the moving of the obelisks, together with various conjectures. What is certain is that the obelisks were moved great distances by man power alone. We do have a full record of the moving of the Vatican obelisk in 1586 from several contemporary accounts, most especially that of the project’s deviser and chief engineer, Domenico Fontana, and this move is the central concern of the book: it details how Fontana, with the enthusiastic backing of Pope Sixtus V, solved the problem by utilizing 48 capstans spread over what is now St. Peter’s Square, turned by the combined muscle power of men and horses. Full accounts are also given of the Paris, London, and New York obelisks. Of particular interest here are the various methods—including a pontoon built around a prone obelisk—by which the monoliths were transported on the high seas. Contemporary engravings are reproduced throughout."Article| Bern Dibner| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Is the ultimate evil just part of our mind or does it actually exist? The Obelisk explores the mythical coming of the Antichrist. It begins with the discovery of a special chamber by the Essene Brotherhoods, and follows their efforts to stop Beast's attempts to bring over the Antichrist. But after losing the first battle at the Jericho Dunnes, the Essenes must now form a special group when they discover that Beast has taken on physical form. This group introduces our heroes, a criminal psychologist and a homicide police lieutenant who begin plotting Beast's movements through the efforts of a noted archaeologist and unknowing fiction writer. The group follows Beast's progress through a maze of book chapters that represent alchemical rituals and deaths, all the while knowing they cannot interfere until the final ritual is completed. It is only during this last ritual on a remote Caribbean island that the final confrontation between good and evil occurs."Article| Michael Henretty| Statement ..."
