The New Atlantis: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work by Francis Bacon was left incomplete in a fairly obvious nod to Plato, who similarly forsook his own tale of Atlantis mid-sentence, possibly for effect. Bacon's work here is notable in the occult sense for two basic reasons.
First; the work dwells primarily on the spiritual character of the mythical people of Bensalem and a few of their rites, and might be ascribed as an...
The Book of Forbidden Knowledge: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Book of Forbidden Knowledge should in no way be judged based on its era and type of manufacture. A simple paperback released at the dawn of the 20th century, it's really more of a modern grimoire influenced by the Oracle/Napoleonic tradition than it is a hand guide of trickery typical of that late Victorian age.
Covering charms, talismans, fortune telling, prognostication,...
Hieroglyphical Fortune Teller: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
In a stroke of good luck I happened upon this work while researching the early 1900s Oraculum; the Dream Book version, as opposed to Tousey's far better Book of Fate version.
A slimmed down work, it contains an expansive oracle in place of Tousey's shorter oracle twain with other content. As a pure fortune telling manuscript, it revolves around asking one of 26 questions, then...
From the Universal Fortune Teller (1790)by Styxhexenhammer666The 1790 version of the Universal Fortune Teller is indeed far stranger than the one I've already released which post-dates it by seventy years. One look at the content and you know you're not exactly reading something from modernity.
The work is substantially more dense than I originally predicted; the astrological content alone stretches well past 40 pages, and that's really only half the work....
Work Begins On 1790 Universal Fortune Teller of Mrs. Bridgetby Styxhexenhammer666I have begun the editing process on the late 1700s Universal Fortune Teller; the forerunner of the 1860 work released by Tousey with the same title.
This version has an enormous astrological section which takes up about half the work and cuts palmistry down significantly. That being said, it's equally as good as Tousey's later version. However, it will take quite some time to edit; the manuscript...
Napoleon's Oraculum - Coming Soon! (Plus General Announcement)by Styxhexenhammer666It's a happy day for those interested in fortune telling, zodiacs, astrology, and general mysticism. One of the best works ever to be crafted that deals with these things (with a surprisingly massive number of types of fortune telling included within its pages) is now virtually done- I have completed my edition of the famous Oraculum of Napoleon; also called the Dream Book, or Book of Fate. This...
