A STELLAR KEY TO THE SUMMER LAND. Part I. Illustrated with Diagrams and Engravings ... (Used)
by Davis, Andrew Jackson
Book ID: 20160, 20160
Colby & Rich 1867 [but circa 1893], Boston, 1867. "A STELLAR KEY TO THE SUMMER LAND. Part I. Illustrated with Diagrams and Engravings of Celestial Scenery." publ's black cloth. 190+8pp, b & w plates, including frontispiece, six pages of Colby ads at back, no other parts published Davis' books are frequently found in bad condition and all of them have become scarce in the last 10 years. Occultists seem to have mostly forgotten him but he's been "discovered" in a big way by academia. Thirty years ago his books were mostly unsalable, I passed up hundreds of copies before a few scholars and librarians started to ask me about him. Now I can't find them anywhere. Librarians and dealers don't seem to understand that there were a number of late 19th century reprints by houses like Colby's where they never took the original copyright date off the colophon so they look like originals especially to those who can't tell late 19th century bindings to those of the civil war era. "Acres of Books" (of Long Beach), stamp to front paste-down, a very good to fine copy "fifth revised edition" [but in fact a reprint of the first edition].
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

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...
