Valuable Herbal Prescriptions: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This homeopathic tract contains a number of remedies (technically late pre-modern folk remedies) for ailments ranging from dyspepsia to hysteria. It also contains a small amount of social reformist sentiment. As with "Weeds Used as Medicine" it was beautifully re-illustrated by Rita Metzner, whose instagram can be seen here.
Some of the weights and measurements used herein are...
The Art of Rita Metzner: Illustrator of "Weeds as Medicine" and "Valuable Herbal Prescriptions"by Styxhexenhammer666Some time ago I decided it was impossible to personally illustrate all of the herbal works I desired to release; I needed someone to do that part of the work for me, having edited or partially edited a half dozen or so works I couldn't complete. Rita Metzner had submitted a link to her art along with many others and was selected as the best possible candidate for an illustrator. Indeed, the result...
Counterblast to Tobacco: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This exceedingly short tract is of note for two reasons; its author and its early date for the content. Crafted at the dawn of the 17th century, it is the first anti-smoking tract, and was penned by none other than King James I himself, of "Daemonologie" fame.
Dwelling on both the humors and then-modern medical lore as well as the spiritual implications of smoking (it being...
General Update: Herbals Forthcoming!by Styxhexenhammer666I have decided to fixate upon three medically related works for the month of April and, once they are done (could be soon, I might have to pay an illustrator, I'm tired of slowing my work down to draw up, scan, format, and re-edit interior images!) I intend to begin working on another manuscript of my own composition on the topic of robotics, automation, synthetic life, and similar topics.

General Update Time: The End of 2016 Is Nigh!by Styxhexenhammer6662016 has been a strange year; political and social upheaval everywhere, even weird weather, and more synchronicity than can remotely be fathomed by even those of us who have studied the occult for some length of time. For me, it has been a massive success; everything I am doing is far, far ahead of where I anticipated it being even under the most optimistic scenarios.
Before 2016 keels over and...
Gunpowder As A War Remedy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is straightly a homeopathic one- the claims here made by Clarke range from the probably true to the likely false; while ingesting gunpowder in solution may have enough chemical action to be of help for some ailments (and using it to sterilize a wound makes sense since it contains both nitrate and sulfur) it is not entirely clear that his claim of the same...
General Update Time!by Styxhexenhammer666Things are going along quite smoothly at present; due to the sudden coming of snow (far earlier than usual) I've gotten a little ADHD addled I suppose and I have three works not complete but all more than half complete; namely the (very good) South Sea Herbal, the Asuri Kalpa, and A work called "Everybody's Astrology." I figure at least one will be done before November ends, and the other two in...
Three New Works I Acquiredby Styxhexenhammer666I was unable to obtain one of the works I had in mind for the archive and release; a scrapbook and partly hand-written civil war era medical quack work with various recipes and letters and other miscellaneous inclusions; the price quickly surpassed my willingness to buy a work I was not able to physically examine for condition.
However I did obtain three quack-era works related to medicine,...
I Am Attempting To Obtain some Extremely Important Worksby Styxhexenhammer666By tonight I may have a very, very special treat for people interested in strange medical and spiritual literature. Lest someone try to outcompete me I won't mention what the specific titles are; but suffice it to say that at least two of the works I am trying to obtain in one lot off ebay are not even mentioned on any website (I doubt the person selling them has any idea of their true value) and...

Some of the titles are hereby listed:
