A Magus Among the Adepts is a wholly new collection of thirty fugitive and unpublished papers by William Wynn Westcott. In the public mind Westcott is primarily associated with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and while the twelve papers in the first section of this collection includes three unpublished addresses to members of the Golden Dawn, as well as gathering Westcott's correspondence concerning Mathers and Crowley for the first time, they also include writings on alchemy, rosicrucianism, and magic. Other aspects of Western Esotericism - symbolism, divination, Kabbalah, the Mysteries and Freemasonry - are taken up in the thirteen papers that make up the following three sections. In all of them Westcott's facility with his varied subject matter - from Gnostic doctrines; Zodiacal signs; Egyptian Mysteries; Kabalistic Cosmogony; and the Number 666, to the lore of the Basilisk, the Mandrake and "Mystical Animals of Antiquity," among much else - and his mastery over its content, is clear. The final section of this collection contains two entertaining essays in which Westcott reflects on his professional career as a coroner. His life as a whole is encapsulated in a new biographical introduction by R. A. Gilbert, who has drawn upon a wealth of contemporary and personal archives to provide a rounded and detailed portrait of every facet of this complex and enigmatic man.
8vo. xxii + 242pp. Quality black cloth with gilt facsimile signature on upper board, gilt titling to spine, frontis, index. Edition limited to 650 hand numbered copies, this copy signed by the editor by way of a bookplate on the front endpaper.
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

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...
