De Alchemia (Used)
by Geber [Jabir]
Book ID: 10659, 10659
Nurnberg 1541, Photocopy, very good clear production with all the famous plates present, bound in thick brown buckram. From the library of Fred Scharna. One of the most important of all medieval alchemical books, Here is what Ritman says in his memoires: "On 3 January 1983, the day when Frans Janssen took office as director of the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica, he entered a new acquisition in the register of purchases, De alchemia by the medieval alchemist Geber. Published in Nuremberg in 1541, it contains some of the most influential alchemical treatises to have come out of the Middle Ages. Among these is the first printed Latin text of what can be termed the Constitution of alchemy, the Tabula Smaragdina of Hermes Trismegistus, with a commentary by Hortulanus" There has been no reprint of this book in any form that I have been able to trace and there are no online editions or scans. Auctions used to turn up copies fairly regularly up to a few years ago but the original has now become fairly rare recently.

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...More
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...
