About this Item: The Teitan Press, York Beach, Maine USA, 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. xiv + 82pp. Quality red cloth with gilt facsimile alchemical design and blind stamping to upper board, gilt titling to spine, b&w frontis, appendix "Laws of the Brotherhood" as published by Sincerus Renatus. Edition limited to 500 hand numbered copies. The first English language publication of this Alchemical / Rosicrucian work by Sigmund Richter that was originally published in Breslau in 1710. In appearance the work is very much that of an alchemical textbook, describing (in the symbolic / chemical terminology of the spagyrical adept) a series of operations which culminate in the creation of the Philosopher's Stone and "all that is necessary to the Work Ordinis Minoris and Majoris." As described by the editor, Dr. R. A. Gilbert, "The book has two distinct but related concerns. First, it sets out the stages by which the Brothers of the [Roscicrucian] Order can succeed in preparing, making and applying the Philosopher’s Stone, but at the same time it presents a sub-text that guides the brethren into a realisation that there is a more subtle purpose to the text. It is also a guide to a parallel, spiritual change that takes place within the practitioner as he progresses with his task: material transmutation is accompanied by spiritual regeneration." The translation was probably made between 1950 and 1960 for J.W. Hamilton-Jones (1887-1965), one of a small circle of Rosicrucian enthusiasts who had founded a very private "Order of Rose +", and editor of two alchemical works – "The Epistles of Ali Puli" (1951) and Bacstrom’s "Alchemical Anthology" (1960) and publisher of a translation of Dr. Dee’s "Hieroglyphic Monad" (1947). NEW book. Fine condition. (no dust jacket issued). Seller Inventory # 44492

About this Item: Charles Simms & Co., Manchester, England, 1859. First Edition. Hardcover, 8vo. 66pp. Contemporary maroon half leather with cloth boards, marbled end papers. The book was originally bound in wrappers, which have not been bound into this copy. Edmund Dudley (c.1462 -1510) was a minister of Henry VII of England, and for a time speaker of the House of Commons. Following the death of Henry VII, Dudley was imprisoned and charged with treason, and was subsequently executed in August 1510.Dudley wrote 'The Tree of Commonwealth,' an essay supporting absolute monarchy, whilst imprisoned, perhaps in the hope of currying favor (and a reprieve) from Henry VIII, although it seems unlikely that the King ever saw it. This is the first edition. Just what, if anything, it has to do with Rosicrucianism is beyond me - although a careful reading might reveal something. It is catalogued here simply because it was published by a group calling themselves 'The Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross,' and thus presumably had some connection . Boards a bit rubbed, leather well rubbed and worn at spine ends and corners with some loss and chipping, spine chafed at edges and darkened, front inner hinge reinforced with cloth tape. Outer page margins lightly browned, light foxing to early pages. Still, overall an unmarked near VG copy. Seller Inventory # 317

About this Item: London: William Rider and Son Limited, 1924, 1924. [Occult theory]. FIRST EDITION. Quarto (22 x 17cm), pp.xxii; 649; [1], blank; [2], advertisements. Title printed in two colours, sixteen full-page plates. Publisher's red cloth lettered and blocked in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Internally clean, trivial dustiness to uncut fore-edge, binding clean and bright. An exceptionally fine copy. A major study of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood from its beginings in the ealy 17th Century to the Occult Revival of the 19th Century. One of Waite's best books which finely demonstrates his contribution to the research and bibliographical study of occult history; something that is often overlooked. Seller Inventory # 50055
