Thomas Bird Mosher, the Pirate Prince of Publishers (Used)
by Bishop, Philip R
Publisher: Oak Knoll Press
Book ID: 9781884718496, 1884718493
Mosher was one of America's most original and controversial publishers, denounced as "literary pirate" by some, yet praised as "Prince of Publishers" by others. This revealing work unravels the unique publishing story behind the piracy slanders and more.
This study not only provides abundant new primary research, including new evidence on royalties paid, but also presents its contents in a novel way. An overview with tables and graphs and a set of appendices cross-referenced with the primary bibliography, now augmented with two checklists of publications by Mosher's "successors".
The opening section is particularly useful in clearly presenting the various series, privately printed books, and books printed on vellum. The full color illustrated section on binding adds yet another dimension showing the respect Mosher's imprints command. Acclaims and criticisms of Mosher's publishing balance the record. A descriptive index, and an annotated and cross-referenced bibliography on Mosher himself, round out this work's strengths.
Bishop's work is recommended for literary scholars, students of literature, libraries, special collections departments, bibliographers, graphic arts historians, collectors, rare book dealers, and to all book lovers interested in the history of the book.

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...
The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
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. 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.
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
