A Collection of all the Most Important Documents on the Subject of Speculative Free Masonry. This is the single most important exposť of Freemasonry ever published on American soil. Long out of print and difficult to obtain, this book was a product of the "Morgan episode" and has since become one of the most sought after items by all students of Masonic ritual. Once dubbed "the Bible of the anti-Masons," it includes hundreds of pages of verbatim degree work copied from rare manuscripts which are unobtainable elsewhere. Henry W. Coil wrote in his Masonic Encyclopedia that this book gives the Scottish Rite rituals as they were worked before Albert Pike revised them, and indeed, some of its rituals are extremely similiar to those in the 1783 Francken Manuscript. Having studied both Pike's rituals and those included in this book, we believe that Pike used Light on Masonry to help in writing his "Magnum Opus" because the secret work in both books is too close to be mere coincidence.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
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...

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...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

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.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
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...
