The Family Companion and Physician: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This semi-short work is a fine one, because it combines herbal remedies (the recipes thereof, that is) with what amounts to diagnosis, and bridges the gap between prior works (which tended to be quite superstitious) and latter ones (which were more scientific in the truly modern sense. In the mid 19th century, the scientific and the spiritual segued into one another seamlessly....
The True Fortune Teller: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is yet another of the fortune teller works I am so fond of. This one is quite short but dense and contains several novel inclusions- it is, as far as I know, the only work which prognosticates by nail shape and color (at least among works I've edited currently) and the tree picture is itself a sort of oracle used with a blindfold to tell general fortune.
It partly plagiarizes...
Devil Worship in France: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is a more or less full length work and one of incredible value. Technically just a refutation of Leo Taxil (who recanted, proving Waite correct, only a year later!) it provides a broad overview of various alchemical and demonological content, mentions and fleshes out a dozen or so major actual occult figures, speaks of the freemasons, and describes then-modern Satanism as it...
Clairvoyance: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little book is the result of the efforts of JCF Grumbine, who for his life led a Rosicrucian offshoot called the Order of the White Rose. It is partially philosophical in nature and dwells on the form of natural law and deific forces and things of that kind, but is essentially split into lessons each with a short sort of how-to "experiment" involving mindfulness and similar...
H.P. Blavatsky (An Outline of her Life): Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short outline has only one subject; the founder and long term leader of Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky. This work chronicles her life in a fairly substantial degree of detail, however one with the intrinsic bias of being written by a member of the Theosophical Society- therefore it refutes some largely accepted claims such as fraudulent spiritual tricks in Blavatsky's apartment;...
Death and the Afterlife: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a strange one even by my own standards; it should be duly noted that due to censorship (and the deplatforming raids which have become a hallmark of the last few years) I have redacted a section of the book begrudgingly. You can find the original scans here if you wish and view this taboo knowledge for yourself about the races of mankind.
Andrew Jackson Davis, the...
The Talmud: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is a fairly good guide to the basic understanding of the Jewish Talmud- rather than provide a massive and complex overview (as many works on Judaism) it condenses things pretty nicely and was meant mainly for the casual studier of religion more than for those intending to become experts- indeed the original edition had several dozen pages of ads for similar...
Scottish Folklore: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is not, strictly speaking, occult in the main sense- however, folklore is often spiritual to an extent, and with this work, that is definitively the case. Written at the end of the 19th century, it contains anecdotal stories by the author- tales he heard or things he witnessed as a youth in Scotland. Some of the tales are hilarious, some bizarre, and a few touch on...
Echoes of the Orient: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
And now comes one of the most recognizable works released within Theosophy; an early work, "Echoes of the Orient" by the esteemed William Quan Judge.
Altogether it is a broad overview of 1. What Theosophy is, 2. What Theosophy believes, and 3. A mild refutation of some criticism aimed at the same. It should be noted that Judge was vice president of the rapidly expanding order at...
The Family Nurse: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This excellent work is at once a manuscript of folk medicine, an apothecarian work, a recipe book, and a compilation of basic life tips from the 1830s; indeed, it is one of those "receipt books" from the era which, in domestic work, displaced some of the more odd content of the prior eras' cosmopolitan grimoires. Gone is the alchemy in favor of more rational medicinal workings.
The Black Pullet: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work never got its own entry either. Now in a proper format, this work primarily revolves around the usage of a series of magical talismans, as part of a larger story (Napoleonic in origin and era) in which the author has been saved by a Turkish mage from an angry group of Arabs. The author then is instructed in magic, including how to raise a hen which will create eggs made...
The Esoteric Basis of Christianity: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is one of Kingslands' additions to Theosophy; an interesting little booklet which compares Christendom with the claimed mystery religion at the core of Theosophy itself.
The words of Jesus in the canonical scriptures, as well as of Paul and others, here, are used to show that Jesus was not a believer in the kind of legalistic superstition of quasi-modern church...
