Garnstone Press, 1972. First Edition. Hardcover. Missing dust jacket. Stain on flyleaf. Some notes in pen on back flyleaf, perhaps in Italian. Some light underlining in pencil. Michel was an English author and esotericist and a prominent figure in the Earth Mysteries movement, a spiritualist sect focused on sacred geometry, particularly Stonehenge, ley lines, and "alternative archaeology." Michel was a countercultural icon, especially among the British pagan community, described as "the most articulate and influential writer on the subject of leys and alternative studies of the past" (Danny Sullivan), and "quite unacceptable to orthodox scholarship" (Ronald Hutton).
City of Revelation was a more complex and in-depth sequel to The View Over Atlantis, written in, according to Michel, "almost two years of near total solitude and intense study." This, his third book, solidified his reputation as an influential thinker in the pseudosciences. Very good. Item #213
