Author: MICHELL, JOHN; RHONE, CHRISTINE. Title: Twelve - Tribe Nations and the Science of Enchanting the Landscape.
Description: London, Thames and Hudson Ltd. 1991, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 0 500 01488 4) Hardcover. Book, With 84 illustrations. 192 p. Cloth with jacket. Throughout the world there survive traditions of a former ideal social order in which nations were divided into twelve tribes, each corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. Examples of such societies are to be found in all times and places, from remote antiquity to the nineteenth century, from Iceland to Madagascar, from Europe through the ancient East to America. Wherever they occur they are associated with a golden age, in which the comforts and culture of civilization combined with the spiritual values of primal human nature. In the "Laws" Plato gives the blueprint for an ideal twelve-tribe constitution. Best known of such organizations are the twelve tribes of Israel under King Solomon, but there have been many others. They are described here for the first time, together with the musical, mythological and astronomical enchantments which kept these societies in harmony with the cosmos. This is a book of revelations. Very Good.
