The Hermetic Research Series

In general, this series will include essays and new research on hermetic subjects, and collections of hermetic texts. This series is intended to produce lower priced books to complement the hardcover Magnum Opus series. They will not be available in bookshops but can be purchased only by mail order. Although these are in paperback format, they are specialist items produced in very small batches, so it is not possible to price them as mass market paperbacks. However, they will provide some interesting hermetic material at prices about a third of that of the hardbound Magnum Opus editions.
