Symbolic Colours by Frederic de Portal. One of the finest collections of traditional symbolism of colour ever put into writing – of inestimable value to mystics, magicians, artists and students of comparative religion alike.

First written in French, 1837 Symbolic Colours is a rare treatise concerning the religious symbolism of colour. It was published in English as a limited edition of 100 copies in 1845. There has been no edition published since.

Within Symbolic Colours the author has gathered together many historical references concerning such symbolism and in doing so has preserved a unique insight and understanding of another time, a time more concerned with spiritual verities than with the rewards of a life dedicated to materialism. Portal reminds us that we are not merely sons or daughters of monkeys but spiritual beings with a higher purpose and destiny than we currently realise, and if his objective in writing this book is, as I believe it to be, to remind us of that fact, then he has been eminently successful, and his foresight and effort deserves our gratitude.
