Product Description

The Æsch Mezareph or Ash Metzareph is a Kabalistic and Alchemical text originally known to persons of Western Culture from the Latin Translation found in a fragmentary condition in the work entitled “Kabalala Denudata” by Knorr von Rosenroth, published at Sulzbach in 1677-84. However, The Æsch Metzareph is still extant as a separate treatise in what is called the Hebrew language, but which is more properly Aramaic Chaldee: it was a companion volume to the Chaldean Book of Numbers so often referred to by H. P. Blavatsky. The text was re-constructed from its scattered fragments, almost in its entirety, by “The Lover of Philalethes”, who published the English version of 1714. The present volume is a Reprint of that English version. || The Collectanea Hermetica is a 10 volume set of Occult Hermetic books edited by William Wynn Westcott. The volumes are as follows: 1) Hermetic Arcanum, 2) The Divine Pymander, 3) A Short Enquiry Concerning the Hermetic Art, 4) Æsch Mezareph, 5) Somnium Scipionis, 6) Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, 7) Euphrates, or the Waters of the East, 8) Egyptian Magic, 9) Numbers, 10) Sepher Yetzirah. || The volumes include several original translations, commentaries, and copious notes.
