by Forster, Charles.
Book ID: 11079, 11079
London: Richard Bentley, 1852-4. Three volumes. Volume one is the second edition, others are first editions. Uniformly bound in publ's green cloth, large gilt illustration on each cover, 190+300+354pp, volume one in very good condition with slightly chipped spine, volume two is a fine copy, tight & bright, volume three is internally vg but the joints are fairly chipped, all plates and text in very good to fine condition. Volume one is subtitled: The Voice of Israel From the Rocks of Sinai, or, The Sinaitic Inscriptions Contemporary Records of the Miracles and Wanderings of the Exode. It is illustrated with seven plates, one of which is a sepia-tinted lithograph and the others are folding and extending, and with two additional plates not called for in the binder's instruction one of which is a handsome engraving of a cairn. At the end is a folding colored map (also not called for) of Arabia. Volume two is subtitled: The Monuments of Egypt and Their Vestiges of Patriarchal Traditions, it is illustrated with 15 plates most of which are folding and extending. The third volume is subtitled: The Monuments of Assyria, Babylonia, and Persia with A New Key for the Recovery of the Lost Ten Tribes. Of the 11 plates and engravings here four are colored lithographs. Later there was a chart that was issued, rare now, not present here. The work is elaboratly illustrated. One interesting aspect of Forster's work is that besides his extensive study of hieroglyphics and other ancient glyphs he also paid close attention to the rock art he found during his travels in the Middle East. Some years ago there was an Indian reprint of this work but it was truncated and lacked most of the plates.

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
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...
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Voynich Manuscript
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...More
