Description

Originally written in 1691, this is a truly remarkable text. It describes a parallel world of elves, faunes and fairies whose relationship with humanity is complicated. The writer of this text was Scottish minister Robert Kirk. In 1692 he set off in his nightshirt to Doon Hill, a nearby faery mound. He was found dead. After his funeral Kirk appeared in a dream to a relative to say the body was not his but but that of his Reflex-man, and that he was trapped in the world of Faery. Occult tradition has it that the Reverend Kirk now acts as a guide between our world, the "midle-earth" and that of "the Subterraneans". This edition reproduces the Comment by folklorist Andrew Lang from the 1893 edition, plus an Introduction by R.B. Cunninghame Graham. There is also a new Prolegomenon by Alan Richardson, author of the Magical Life of Dion Fortune and other works, which places the text in the context of modern occultism.

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...

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

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...
