Description

De Virtutibus Lapidum. The Virtues of Stones, Attributed to Damigeron Translated by Patricia Tahil, Edited by Joel Radcliffe.

This first time in English translation, a veritable grimoire of gemstones, is a must for those into primary source materials!

Dating from the Second Century B.C. in Arabia, this classic has been translated from the Old Latin and Classical Greek. An emphasis on completeness is exhibited in the publishing of this work; in this translation the original Latin and Greek are printed in the latter half of the book. Also included are the complete Latin footnotes. The luster from the blend of historical curiosity and the power of stones create a unique tone and brilliant insight into the diverse magickal/ritual and healing uses of gemstones. Fifty gemstones are mentioned. In the history of lapidaries, De Virtutibus Lapidum, by the Mage Damigeron represents one of our deepest roots of an ancient source of the base for our contemporary literature and knowledge on the magickal lore of gemstones. This is possibly the oldest in the West and Near East.

16 pp.,94 pgs., 4.25 x 7 inches. Type has been set in Jenson.

Clemens, Raymond
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...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

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.

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.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
