☯ Full Synopsis : ""A deluxe book produced at the point that Harroun and Bierstadt dissolved their business...The Artotypes in this book are some of the finest produced by Bierstadt. The pictorial record of this engineering feat is remarkable in itself; casing and tilting the obelisk, loading it into the side of the ship by removing part of the hull, pulling it out on a special dock in the Hudson and then moving it by custom made rail from the river to the site next to the Metropolitan Museum. The illustrations show the hieroglyphics, now mostly lost due to New York's polluted air, bright and clear."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 82."Article| Henry Honeychurch Gorringe| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Obelisk: A History of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press details the history of one of the most extraordinary—and controversial—publishing enterprises of the twentieth century. Publisher simultaneously of the infamous novels of the literary elite as well as low-budget erotica and “dirty books,” Jack Kahane’s Obelisk Press published the likes of Henry Miller, James Joyce, Anaïs Nin, and D.H. Lawrence, alongside a lengthy list of censor-baiting eccentrics like N. Reynolds Packard, the New York Daily News’ Rome correspondent and the self-styled “Marco Polo of Sex.” Here, for the first time, is the story of this remarkable venture, which captures some of the twentieth century’s most outrageous literary personalities and their often scandalous exploits, including the failed golf club society magazine run by Nin, Miller, and Lawrence Durrell and the tortured relationship between Obelisk author Marjorie Firminger and Wyndham Lewis. A richly illustrated cultural history of 1920s Paris, a fully-narrated bibliography of works published by an unforgettable literary institution, and a glimpse into the remarkable life of the Press’s creator, Jack Kahane, The Obelisk Press is a publishing event not to be missed by anyone with an interest in twentieth-century literary lives and letters."Article| Neil Pearson| 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 ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Why does an ancient Egyptian obelisk celebrating the god of the sun stand in the centre of St Peter’s Square in Vatican City, the home of the Pope and the heartland of Catholicism? Taking this mysterious fact as his starting point, Tony Sunderland examines the history of religious belief in an attempt to understand how what has happened in the past continues to exert a ghostly influence in the present. Going right back to the voluptuous mother goddess figures of our ancestors, the pantheons of the Greeks and Romans, the wisdom of the Hebrew Bible, the birth of Christ, the radical heresies of the Gnostics and the Esoterics, the consolidation of a Catholic orthodoxy and the Protestant revolution, Sunderland traces a history of ideas that shines a light on how and why belief systems are constructed and the role they play in providing meaning and order in a dangerous, volatile world. Where did we come from? Why are we here? What happens when we die? Many alternative explanations of how ‘things came to be’ in the Western world have either been ignored or suppressed by dominant and overpowering narratives of what can be termed as consensus history. This book blends the orthodox view of Western history with alternative interpretations and propositions of historical events. The metaphors of the obelisk and the cross have been used to illustrate the interdependent relationship between the ‘other’ and the ‘orthodox’ respectively. One cannot dominate the other; rather they can only be defined through an understanding of what they are not. Only then, can bridges be made to create a vision of ‘what could be’. “Early Christianity did not compromise. The new faith had two non-negotiable principles: it was exclusive – it did not tolerate other gods or religious faiths; and it was evangelical – it wanted to expand its flock to all who would listen.”"Article| Tony Sunderland| Statement ..."
