Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Swastika, De.
Driemaandelijksch Tijdschrift voor de Studie van Symboliek, Vrijmetselarij en aanverwante Onderwerpen.
1911--1917? Quarterly
Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Language: Dutch.
Publisher: Hermes.
Editor: H.J. van Ginkel and A. Kerdijk.
Corporate author: Officiell Orgaan van de Vertegen-Woordiging van den Supreme Couseil Universel Mixte in Nederland en Kolonien
1/1, January 1911. 32-80 pp.

This was primarily a Masonic journal of a slightly irregular sort (it was the organ of the Supreme Couseil Universel Mixte in the Netherlands) but contained a great deal of material on general occult subjects. Van Ginkel, the editor, wrote on the Rosicrucians (as "Fr. Syntheticus") for Licht en Waarheid and later edited the Theosophical journal Ster in het Oosten. The first issue proclaimed the journal's goal to make known to the Dutch public the first steps in the Royal Art, independently of the constraints of Church and Lodge, and to cover the Tarot, Co-Masonry, the Book of the Dead, the Kabalah, etc. It published material from W. Wynn Westcott, John Yarker, William James, et al. Delpher (28 issues).
