Soft Cover

Appears UNREAD! Just hint of edgewear and faint age toning of pages, otherwise pristine! From the publisher:"Learn the innermost secrets of the holiest name of God and how you can use the secrets for magic, personal development, and spirituality, when you get Tetragrammaton by Donald Tyson. In Ceremonial Magic and Jewish tradition, the "Tetragrammaton" is composed of four Hebrew letters and is the occult key that unlocks the meaning behind astrology, the Tarot, the mysteries of the Jewish Bible, the Kabbalah, the Enochian magic of John Dee, and much more. In Tetragrammaton, Tyson shows that it is nothing less than the archetypal blueprint of creation, the basis for such fundamental forms as the DNA double helix and the binary language of modern computers. Never before has such explicit information about this name of God been revealed. Now you will learn: ·The complete history of the Tetragrammaton, including its meaning and use in the kabbalah ·The correct vibration of the name to evoke its power, and the use of the commanding voice ·The ancient lost methods of divination by Urim and Thummim ·The role of the Tetragrammaton in empowering the magical ring of King Solomon ·New English versions of the Enochian Keys ·The real meaning behind the collection of twelve stones from the River Jordan by representatives of the twelve tribes of Israel ·An entirely new order of Banner angels In the past, the use of the Tetragrammaton has been hinted at only in obscure religious and alchemical emblems. Now, for the first time, its true structure is laid bare in a clear and unambiguous manner, allowing this potent key to open astounding vistas of understanding. Tetragrammaton is a book for Kabbalists, ritual occultists, and anyone fascinated by the magic of the Bible. If you want to understand the deepest secrets of God, get Tetragrammaton. "

Soft Cover
Very Good





Minor edgewear otherwise a fine clean study copy. From the back cover:"Alchemy is thought to have originated over 2000 years ago in Hellenic Egypt, the result of three converging streams: Greek philosophy, Egyptian technology and the mysticism of Middle Eastern religions. Its heyday was from about 800 A.D. to the middle of the seventeenth century, and its practitioners ranged from kings, popes, and emperors to minor clergy, parish clerks, smiths, dyers, and tinkers. Even such accomplished men as Roger Bacon, Thomas Aquinas, Sir Thomas Browne and Isaac Newton took an interest in alchemical matters. In its search for the "Philosopher's Stone" that would transmute base metals into silver and gold, alchemy took on many philosophical, religious and mystical overtones. These and many other facets of alchemy are explored with enormous insight and erudition in this classic work. E. J. Holmyard, a noted scholar in the field, begins with the alchemists of ancient Greece and China and goes on to discuss alchemical apparatus, Islamic and early Western alchemy; signs, symbols, and secret terms; Paracelsus; English, Scottish and French alchemists; Helvetius, Price, and Semler, and much more. Ranging over two millennia of alchemical history, Mr. Holmyard shows how, like astrology and witchcraft, alchemy was an integral part of the pre-scientific moral order, arousing the cupidity of princes, the blind fear of mobs and the intellectual curiosity of learned men. Eventually, however, with the advent and ascension of the scientific method, the hopes and ideas of the alchemists faded to the status of "pseudo-science." That transformation, as well as alchemy's undeniable role as a precursor of modern chemistry, are brilliantly illuminated in this book. Students of alchemy, chemistry, the history of science, and the occult, plus anyone interested in the origin and evolution of one of mankind's most enduring and influential myths, will want to have a copy of this masterly study."
