Description

Daito-cho, Japan: Lapis Publications, 2013 [ 2014 ]. First Edition Hardcover. Octavo. 160pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering to spine and upper board, well illustrated in color. Sewn, 128 gram gloss art paper. Signed by the editor on the half title page. From the publisher: "In the 1960s, a French Rosicrucian order known as the Frères Aînés de la Rose+Croix, published four books on their practice of alchemy. One of these was a relatively small work, nothing more than a booklet; yet the impact it would have on the alchemical community of the 20th century and beyond was significant. This particular publication, consisting of not even 100 pages, and these together containing less than 4500 words, carried the intriguing title of Tout le Grand OEuvre Photographié-The Entire Great Work Photographed. For the first time in the history of alchemy, one of the methods for achieving the Magnum Opus-the confection of the famed Philosopher's Stone-was illustrated from the beginning stages to the very completion of the work, including the actual attainment of the Stone itself, via color photographs. With 43 four-color images depicting the Great Work in its various phases, as well as the end result along with products of its application, the history of alchemical literature had experienced a true milestone. Now, for the first time ever, this significant work has been officially translated into English and is here presented with all 43 photographs, cleaned and enhanced for maximum clarity, as well as with an accompanying appendix containing the original, unaltered pictures for the benefit of readers wishing to see the images as they were found in the original publication of 1968. The present work is additionally accompanied by a foreword from the translator who himself is a dedicated student of the ancient and noble Art & Science of alchemy, and has been for nearly two decades."

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...

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...

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.
