ALCHEMY. Comprehensive Bibliography of the Manly P. Hall Collection Of Books And Manuscripts. Including Related Material On Rosicrucianism And The Writings Of Jacob Boehme. Introduction by Manly P. Hall, cataloging, tetc, and editing by R. C. Hogart. Philosophical Research Society, 1986, quarto, 16+314pp, eight full page color plates, hundres of B & W plates, very lightly used, cloth a bit marked, else vg+. This large handsome volume, bound in fine red and manila cloth with gilt title and gilt cross on front cover, contains detailed information on the oldest portion of the collection housed at the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles, the finest occult library open to the public in America, but whose rarest books, mostly the copies in this catalogue, were sold to the Getty Library. 164 books and 245 manuscripts are described at length with very full collations, history, provenance, etc., most with long annotations regarding their importance and place in the lineage of alchemic philosophy and investigations. These annotations are anonymously written by Bennett Gilbert, a Los Angeles rare book dealer. They reflect the interests of bibliographers, dealers and collectors and are unusually detailed, with Gilbert often going to considerable pains to extract an interesting episode in publishing history or track down an elusive citation. 1,000 copies printed. Highly recommended. Belongs next to the works of Mellon, Gilly, Ferguson, Gardner, and Duveen.
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
