About the Author

The Marquis Alexandre Saint-Yves d'Alveydre (1842-1909) is a key figure of French esoteric tradition who had a great influence on the magus Papus (who described Saint-Yves as his "intellectual teacher") as well as Helena Blavatsky, Rudolf Steiner, and René Guénon. Saint-Yves also was the creator of the Archeometer, a measuring instrument, which he claimed was a "key" to understanding the Mysteries of the Word.


"There is a grandeur to this book. Its vivid and elegant prose lifts it far above the logorrheic authors of visionary and channeled literature. It rivals the fantasy fiction of H. P. Lovecraft or Jorge Luis Borges and reminds us that the earth is a place with many unexplored corners, enigmas, and surprises in store for us surface-dwellers."--Joscelyn Godwin, from the introduction
"This edition's lengthy introduction by mystical musicologist Joscelyn Godwin provides rich historical context."--Nexus New Times Magazine, Vol. 15, Number 6
"Nowhere in the pages of The Kingdom of Agarttha will you find references to fantastic beasts or extraterrestrials haunting the bowels of the hollow earth. This is a serious study of how humanity can improve itself, with special reference to religious and political harmony, if we follow the Agartthian example."--Kathleen McErlain, New Dawn, No. 113, Mar/Apr 2009
". . . this is indeed a grand book about ancient civilizations, cosmic destiny, lost continents, great wisdom, and vast spans of time."--Bob Rickard, Fortean Times 264, June 2010
