Description

1,291 items, all paperbound, 99% on archaeology, most in Swedish, many in other Scandinavian languages, some in German, an occasional few in Finnish, Italian, French, Spanish. About 35% have WH's autographed signature in pen or pencil on, or inside the cover. About 65% are offprints of one type or another, the majority of the rest are periodicals, serials, or scholarly pamphlets. Most date from 1940-1970 but some as early as 1900 and a few as late as 1980. There are one or two copies of dozens of WH's journal articles, book reviews, and essays, (NB: we are only charging for one of each title). A complete bibliography of his writings, published upon his death is included.

Periodicals and serials like Mannus, Oldtiden, Fynd, Praehistorische Zeitschrift, Acta Archaeologica, Kuml, are well represented, but the vast majority of the titles here are offprints that fellow archaeologists sent WH when published, often with kind notes on the covers. Many are only 5-10pp each but most are 20-30pp each with some over 100pp. About 20% are autographed presentation copies from other archaeologists. About 90% are in fine condition, 10% may be loose, chipped, worn and/or browned from age. Some have pencil marginalia by previous owners. Many come from the libraries of Jan Petersen and Andreas Oldberg, with their signatures on the front covers. Other archaeologists names appear in other volumes (not as presentations). It would appear that WH inherited or acquired a number of libraries.

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways. Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Hamilton-Giles, Peter
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...

"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."

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Churton, Tobias
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
