Some years ago the Dutch artist and publisher Peter Glandorff, while visiting a specialized esoteric library in Amsterdam, came across a copy of Carlo Suarès’ The Song of Songs. He immediately recognized the rare depth and beauty of its content, but learned that the book had been out of print for years. With the permission of Shambala Publications Inc. Glandorff and Essener Publishers have now produced this hard cover reprint in a limited edition.


The Song of Songs was first published in French as Le Cantique des Cantiques by Les Editions du Mont Blanc, Geneva, in 1969. An English translation was published in 1972 by Shambala Publications Inc., Berkeley, U.S.A.
