Description

Cambridge: Cambridge University 1995 (1992), green boards, 320pp, vf condition. When this foundational work was first published in 1992 it was issued in a sewn binding with dust jacket but quickly Cambridge began shipping copies without jackets, then they published a paperback edition, (glued as here) and then later still they bound up some paperback volumes into the same green hardcovers of the first edition, thus the statement here on the colophon "first paperback edition." A monumental work that will remain the definitive edition of the Hermetica for many years to come, or at least until new texts are discovered. Chapters include: Introduction: Hor and Manetho; The World of the Hermetica; Technical and Theoretical Hermetica; Hermetic Collections; Hermes and His Readers; Bibliography and Abbreviations; Corpus Hermeticum I-XVIII; Asclepius. Three indexes: Greek words, Latin words and general index. Extensive and detailed notes to each page of text.

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.
