Description

Biblo and Tannen 1964. Four Volumes plus index bound in seven volumes in blue cloth. A masterwork. "The Palace of Minos: A Comparative Account of the Successive Stages of the Early Cretan Civilization at Knossos". A very attractive set of this classic (and scarce) study. The bindings of all volumes are sturdy and tight. Each volume has the previous owners name and a price in marker, and a cartouche on the front end paper. A set of this condition would normally run upwards of $1500, but the previous owner did scattered yellow highlighting of place names through a number of the volumes, hence the reduced price. The highlighting is usually only a name, not an entire text line. Given that the set is several thousand pages in length, the highlighting affects only a small fraction of them. Details below, all highlights and notes have been tagged with an inserted slip of paper where they occur for easy tracking. (Needless to say, extra shipping charges apply for this set.)

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...

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