The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & UnNatural History Lecture Series: Lachman’s ‘Madame Blavatsky’




We are very pleased to be the bookselling partner for our old chum Viktor Wynd’s series of Zoom lectures at his Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & UnNatural History. The books will be delivered with signed bookplates, so please be patient – we will process the orders as soon as they come in, but getting the bookplates sent out, signed, posted back to us, placed in the books, and then the books posted out… well, it all means delivery is not immediate! It could take up to 6 weeks for delivery.

To accompany Gary’s lecture, we’re offering signed copies of his book Madame Blavatsky : The Mother of Modern Spirituality.

Kurt Vonnegut called her “The Founding Mother of Occult in America.” Pioneer, visionary or charlatan? Madame Helena Petrova Blavatsky has been hailed as an icon and scorned as a fraud. At last, there is a full, comprehensive biography on the woman who founded the Theosophical Society, wrote the most influential occult book ever (The Secret Doctrine) and helped introduce Eastern and esoteric spiritual ideas to the modern West.

Acclaimed spiritual biographer Gary Lachman (who was also a founding member of the rock band Blondie and is an inductee in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) follows up his book “Jung the Mystic” with this concise new biography that examines the controversial life and legacy of the influential thinker and one of the most polarizing pioneers of modern alternative spirituality — Madame Blavatsky — the Mother of Modern Spirituality.

Please remember: delivery is not immediate! It could take up to 6 weeks for delivery.
