Description

The book of natural and talismanic magic known as the Kyranides or Cyranides, is one of the most important works of technical Hermetica, the practical magical, astrological and alchemical works attributed to the sage Hermes Trismegistus.

The Kyranides is a compilation of several earlier works, notably the treatise of Harpocration, that deal with the occult and magical properties of birds, animals, plants and stones. The Kyranides is truly an ancient text, dating to between the 2nd and 4th centuries A.D. The eminent scholar of Hermeticism, Garth Fowden, describes the Kyranides as the most important source for the Hermetic doctrine of the occult virtues and powers.

Kyranides is divided into four books, loosely organized by the letters of the Greek alphabet. Each chapter contains the magical and occult properties of animals, birds, plants and stones beginning with that letter, plus the first book includes instructions for talismans using the appropriate plants, animals and stones. This translation of the Cyranides was made in 1685 and is the only complete translation available in English of this key Hermetic text.

A invaluable source for Hermetic and talismanic magic and the occult virtues of plants, animals, birds and stones. 196 pages of original material in a facsimile version of the 1685 original. very clean copy, 8.5 x 11 inch format.

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

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.

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...
