by Crowley, Aleister
Publisher: Book Tree
Book ID: 9781585093519, 1585093513
Usually available in 3-5 days
This book contains early works written by Crowley between 1902-1905 and is Volume Two of a three-volume set. He concentrates mostly on mystical poetry and eastern religion in this volume, along with his first important works in the area of magick. The Sword of Song, aka Book of the Beast, is where Crowley makes his first appearance as "The Beast." Science and Buddhism includes Crowley's complete views on Buddhism and reveals its strong connection to modern science. Both of these writings include useful information for those involved in Crowley's secret magickal order, the A. .A. .. Ambrosii Magi Hortus Rosarum is an important mystical book referencing Quabalistic and Hermetic knowledge, in addition to magick and alchemy. The Three Characteristics is a jakata - a Buddhist incarnation story, with himself and Allan Bennett injected as characters with different names. It covers deep philosophical issues on the nature of reality, the workings of the cosmos, and our place within it. Essays in Ontology tries to reconcile the three major religions of Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism through the use of mathematics rather than spiritual or theological concepts. The Excluded Middle and TIME are philosophical satires that close out the book. There are also a number of poems. The more one understands Crowley's magickal terms, the more will be gained from the poetry found here.

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
