APOLLONIUS OF TYANA And THE INDIAN EMBASSIES
TO ROME by Osmond De Beauvoir Priaulx 1873
London: Quaritch, Piccadilly.
Self Published?. RARE Limited Edition. Two volumes in one edition.
Priaulx's The Indian Travels of
Apollonius of Tyana was originally published in Paris around 1850.
The author translated and recounted the original story written by
Philostratus in 215 A.D., who in turn relied on earlier sources.
During the time of Christ, Apollonius came to be the best known
healer, prophet and religious authority in the known world. Apollonius
was devoted to discovering and understanding all of the secret
doctrines of all of the world's religions. he was known as one of the
greatest travelers of antiquity. He was the first of his countrymen to
visit India. The Indian Travels of Apollonius of Tyana make up the
first 62 pages of this book. The remainder of the book is The Indian
Embassies to Rome from the reign of Augustus, to the Death of
Justinian. The book may have been rebound, as the spine does not look
Osmond de Beauvoir Priaulx (1805-1891) is also known for his
writing of; "Quaestiones Mosaicae, The book of Genesis compared with
the remains of ancient religions." No doubt he had a mystical bent and
a great interest in ancient religions. Both his books deal with
questions on the origins of Religions. For It is said that Apollonius
of Tyana brought back to Greece the teachings of Krishna from India.
Krishna, to the Greeks, was known as "Christos". It was Apollonius'
writings about Krishna, that Bishop Marcian discovered in Asia Minor a
century later and translated from Samaritan into Greek and Latin, to
produce the first compiled "Christian" Bible. Again, there is quite a
bit of goings on in The Indian Embassies To Rome, that raise many
questions. I can not locate any other edition of either title, alone,
or separate. It is not an overstatement to say this book is Rare.
According to the authors preface, he printed a small number for his
own satisfaction. There is a note (facsimile?) in the very beginning
of book, for which I have no clue (see photo). Covers are paper board,
possibly rebound. Top edges gilt. Tight binding, solid hinges and
clean bright pages. 5½" x 7½" tall, 260 pages, including index.

is a fascinating book, published in 1736 in Paris. The book gives in list
form descriptions of the groups of people that the author included as
having been in some way antithetical to the structure and message of the
Christian Church in history. Included in the volume are the Jews, ‘Anti-Papes’,

Heretics and Fanatics that have caused trouble for the Church.
