Secret Teachings of All Ages500
The Wisdom of the Ancients
The classic encyclopedia of the arcane in an updated edition
The initial concept for what became known as Hall’s “Great Book”, first began in 1923 when the young Los Angeles-based orator began a months-long trip around the globe. Circumnavigating by ship, Hall visited Egypt, China and India, immersing himself in the philosophical and religious history of each country. Upon his return he spent the next seven years penning his massive compendium of philosophy and myth.
Nearly a century after its release, this iconic masterwork has been reproduced for the first time from the rare and extravagant original edition. This meticulously-restored version of Hall’s “Great Book” is also accompanied by an expansive companion book, featuring condensed summaries of each chapter of The Secret Teachings, alongside newly-discovered artworks, rare photography from Hall’s archives as well as essays from journalists Mitch Horowitz and Jessica Hundley.
Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) was a Canadian-born scholar and philosopher. He authored dozens of books and hundreds of essays and gave thousands of lectures in Los Angeles and throughout the world. He is perhaps most famous for his epic 1928 encyclopedia, The Secret Teachings of All Ages. Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society in 1934 and was its first president, remaining so until his death in 1990. The Philosophical Research Society continues to carry on his mission to provide resources for those who seek practical and profound wisdom for the 21st century.
