Description

THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA An International Work of Reference on the Constitution, Doctrine, Discipline, and History of the Catholic Church. NY: Encyclopedia Press 1913 reprint of 1907-1914 [first] edition. First reprint edition, (sometimes called the 'second edition'). 16 large heavy octavo's, green publ's cloth, text double column printed on good paper which is clean and bright, woodcuts throughout, last volume is index, with hundreds of full page plates (some in color) and many hundreds of woodcuts and engravings in the text. Two volumes are from another set and in slightly different bindings (a bit darker cloth), most covers have the traces of very old bug trails. While this may be unpleasant to some it has never bothered me a bit and I've used this for over 20 years. It is a monument to the study of the Catholic Church, as it was seen in the days of Pious X. 11,600 entries. Hundreds of contributors. Available in a CDROM now for mere $40.00, (and erroneously referred to as the "second edition" by the publisher--there is only one edition, with two separate printings.). A second edition, entries modernized, was published in 1967 and 2002 (revised), is also in 15 volumes with 12,000 entries and is in print at $1600.00. You will see some volumes "issued under the auspices of ....", but these are just reprints by the publisher in with cheaper materials. I have done a page-by-page comparison of the 1909 1st Ed and this edition and they are identical except for a few plate changes. Scarce. Complete in 16 volumes (eventually there were an additional five supplementary volumes published).

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
