Anacalypsis: An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil of Saitic Isis (2 volumes) (Out of Print)

by Higgins, Godfrey

Publisher:

Binding: Hardcover

Book ID: A7077, A7077

Description

New York: Macy-Masius, 1927. Second Edition. Hardcover. Large 4to. Two volumes (complete). xxxiii + 867 & xi + 519, [V] pp. Decorated grey cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board, top edge gilt, b&w plates, index at rear of each volume.

A reprint of Godfrey Higgins' massive two volume work on the history of religions in which he put forth an argument broadly similiar to that presented by Charles-François Dupuis in his "Origine de tous les cultes ou Religion Universelle," (see item 10498) that all religions were derived from a single common ancestor. The book was first printed in two volumes - issued in 1833 & 1836 respectively - in an edition of 200 copies (see above), and was then reprinted in an abridged form in 1878. This 1927 edition was limited to 350 numbered sets, and was the first complete edition to be published since the First.

Cloth generally a bit rubbed, spine a little darkened. Spine ends and corners bumped and chafed with some light fraying, 1/2 inch closed tear at upper front gutter of volume I, a few light scratches to spine and boards, paper very lightly browned. Still, overall a sound and clean near VG set. Lacking slipcase that was issued with this set.

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...

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.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) 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...
