"The Hieroglyphics was written in the fifth century AD, just as the living tradition of ancient Egyptian esoteric lore and learning was about to fade into obscurity forever. As the sole surviving work on Egyptian hieroglyphics and symbolism, the Hieroglyphics holds a position of unrivaled importance. Rediscovered in the Renaissance, it was enthusiastically seized upon in the Hermetic resurgence and became the chief inspiration for the Hermetic/Alchemical Emblem tradition. In more resent times, the Hieroglyphics has served as a primary source work for Jungian psychologists and others exploring the deeper dimensions of symbolical thinking. This edition contains an appendix with a fresh translation, into English of the passages dealing with sexual symbolism. In the original 1840 edition these appeared in Greek and Latin only."-from DJ.

Store Description

Most of our stock is from a major western esotericism and History of Science collection. It was collected over a lifetime. We do not simply amass books from remainders, libraries or garage sales. Many rare volumes line our shelves. Much thought and care were used in collecting the books. Rare or not, each book captures a moment in history and has its own magic story to tell. Our goal is to eventually have photos of all our books-with photos-on Abebooks.Check back often.
