A Buddhist Catechism (Out of Print)
by Subhadra Bhikshu
Book ID: A8335, A8335
Publisher and date unknown, circa 1890-1895. Brown cloth with gilt title on front board. 92 pages. VG+, previous owner's name stamped and inked on free endpaper.
"Subhadra Bhikshu was the pen-name of a German lay Buddhist, Friedrich Zimmermann (1851–1917). Since 1892 he represented the Maha Bodhi Society in Germany and was the President of its German Branch in 1911–1912. Protracted illness prevented him from doing other literary work after his Buddhist Catechism.
The original German version, first published in 1888, had 14 editions up to 1921, when a revised edition was prepared by Dr. Karl Seidenstücker. An English translation appeared first in 1890, followed by separate editions for the U.S.A. in 1895 and for Ceylon in 1908; the latter was reprinted in 1949 by the Maha Bodhi Society, Colombo. There had been three French editions (for France and Switzerland), three in Hungarian, while each of the two Russian editions was soon after publication suppressed by the Czarist censorship."

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
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...
