The Temple of the Rosy Cross The Soul. Its Powers, Migrations and Tra (Used)
by Dowd, F. B.
Book ID: 2660, 2660
167pp, "third edition" vg. This is an early title of Health Research, R. G. Wilborn's remarkable and pioneering reprint house (also publishing original editions) that specialized in all the most marginal, occult, and obscure books that had gone out of print and were frequently lost if not for Wilborn's industry. I remember dealing with him in the early 1980's, he would send me his "want lists" and I would report back, on little slips of paper, my typed descriptions of titles I might have. It was always assumed he would pay little and I was just happy to deal with such an important man. He was a chiropractor and always wrote his gruff and hasty notes to me in thick green ink, and he was not afraid to pick up the phone and bark "where are my books" a few days after he ordered them. I know he lived into his 90's at least and the press still continues somewhere in Oregon. In the case of this book he took the trouble to re-type the entire book, presumably because he could not legally photocopy it, and issue it in a mimeograph format.

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...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"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."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
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.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
