This volume contains the English translation by Dr. Everard, 1650, of seventeen tracts (of which the Pymamder is one) attributed to Hermes Trismegistos, otherwise Mercurius Termaximus, or in the Egyptian language, Thoth, or Taautes or Tat. In this tract the Pymander is giving instruction to Hermes the sage, in the capacity of Divine teacher to human pupil. A parallel conception is seen in the Bhagavad Gita, where Krishna teaches Arjuna. || The Collectanea Hermetica is a 10 volume set of Occult Hermetic books edited by William Wynn Westcott.
