The Ouroboros Press edition of the Hermetica brings together all the important books in the Hermetic Corpus as known by the students of esotericism in the Modern Era. The translations by esoteric scholars; John Everard, Anna Bonus Kingsford and Edward Maitland, put this edition in the context of practicing magicians at the turn and close of the 20th century.
The Hermetica represent a significant part of the esoteric tradition in the West and influenced many important alchemical and magical texts as well as participants in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Theosophical Society and Gnostic circles. The Hermetic texts gathered together in this volume open up many of the mysteries expressed in the books of the adepts.
Texts include but are not limited to:
Virgin of the World
