Three Hands Press has announced the publication of the anthology, Occlith 1: Codex Homunculi on September 29. Their circular states:
In cooperation with Viatorium Press, Three Hands Press is honored to make available the latest landmark offering of collected esoteric writings, Occlith 1: Codex Homunculi. Taking the artificially-created anthropoid as its theme, Codex Homunculi gathers together some of the most obscure and ancient texts hermeticism on what is arguably one of the most taboo and heretical operations of the Alchemical Art. Although some of the treatises represented, such as those of Paracelsus, are well known, other texts are translated here for the very first time.
‘And if thou wilt see and behold this Workman, even by mortall things that are upon Earth, and in the deep, consider, O Son, how Man is made and framed in the Womb; and examine diligently the skill, and cunning of the Workman, and learn who it was that wrought and fashioned the beautfiull and Divine shape of Man…’
