The Hermetic Research Series

During 1983 and 1988 Adam McLean published this series of 6 paperback books. These early titles are no longer in print. This series was revived in 2001 and a further eleven titles were prepared up to 2004. This series was intended to produce lower priced books to complement the hardcover Magnum Opus series. They were not available through bookshops but were purchased only by mail order directly through these web pages.
These were issued in paperback format. They were specialist items produced in very small batches, and provided some interesting alchemical material at prices about a third of that of the hardbound Magnum Opus editions. Sales, however, were so disappointing that I had to abandon the paperback format, and I instead I issued these on the Hermetic Research CD-Rom.
I bound up a small number of these titles in book format uniform with the Magnum Opus and Hermetic Studies for a few collectors who wanted these. These have now become rather rare items, as only three or four copies of a title were bound up each year. In general, the series included essays and new research on hermetic subjects, and collections of shorter hermetic texts.
