Description

The Book of the Treasure of Alexander, attributed to Alexander the Great and his tutor, the philosopher Aristotle, is a medieval Hermetic text of alchemy, astrology and astrological magic. This is the first complete English translation of this key text, originally written in Arabic, which explains a wide variety of practical applications of occult virtue and the hidden powers of Nature.

The Book of the Treasure of Alexander contains a fascinating look at Arabic alchemy with instructions for preparing the Great Elixir or Philosopher's Stone. It contains a dozen poisons, including the "Royal Water", the "cold poison" and the "poison that kills through laughter" as well as the antidotes to these poisons many of which have their powers enhanced through their creation according to astrological timing.

The Book of the Treasure of Alexander contains 30 new astrological talismans, most provided with special images from the original Arabic manuscript and a new set of planetary invocations for Venus, Mars and Mercury accompanying its section on creating astrological statuettes.

Translated from the Portuguese critical edition by Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold and edited by Christopher Warnock, The Book of the Treasure of Alexander is an invaluable addition to the library of scholars and practitioners of authentic Hermetic astrology, alchemy and magic.

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.

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.

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.
