The word egout is the French word for sewer or drain and refers to the honorary title conferred upon Rina Hands by Mr. Gurdjieff during her stay with him in Paris. This was during the last few months of his life from August, 1948 to October, 1949. It was one of several such titles which Mr. Gurdjieff used during those extraordinary meals. With these titles and the help of a liberal supply of alcohol, he was able to get beyond the facade of those present, expose what was behind the mask, or illustrate some particular aspect of his ideas. Rina wrote this diary primarily for herself, for she was certain even then of the importance of those days. It is only now, over fifty years later, that we have the privilege of looking in on a short chapter of one person's life. ~ From the foreword by Norman Richards. Hardbound and Handbound

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
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
