Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0893144150, Hardcover)

Translated by Thomas Taylor.

Introductory Preface by Manly P. Hall.

A photographic facsimile of the 1792 edition, published in London, this includes a preliminary dissertation on "The Life and Theology of Orpheus," "The Initiations of Orpheus" which were the invocations used in the Eleusinian Mysteries, and "Concerning the Beautiful" by Plotinus. These comprise a compendium of the teachings of Orpheus, a missionary of civilization and one whose teachings are nearly indistinguishable from the foundation of the Pythagorean philosophy.
