Triangular Book of St. Germain announced by Ouroboros Press

Ouroboros Press—purveyors of high-quality editions of classic texts of Western esotericism, and host of Seattle’s Esoteric Book Conference—has just announced its latest publication, the Triangular Book of St. Germain. This encrypted grimoire, attributed to Comte de Saint Germain (d. 1784), describes its contents as “The Holy Magic revealed to Moses,” and claims to have been discovered in Egypt and carefully preserved in Asia. This is the lesser-known of two books commonly attributed to St. Germain, the other being La Très Sainte Trinosophie (The Most Holy Trinosophia). Due in September, this new translation of the Triangular Book will be published in color on triangular pages, as befits the book.

According to the Ouroborous Press website,

The Triangular Book of St. Germain is unique in the history of occult manuscripts. Supposed to belong to St. Germain the Grimoire passed through the hands of many prominent occultists through the centuries. Originally written in French concealed by a cipher, the manuscript has been decoded and translated by Nick Koss. Mr. Koss gave an excellent presentation at the Esoteric Book Conference discussing his decipherment techniques and recently his in depth analysis of the manuscript and its history was published in CLAVIS 3: Cipher & Stone. This new edition of the Triangular Book has been set in fresh type by Joseph Uccello, features color illustrations and bound into a triangular binding making it a unique artifact of esoteric publishing. In addition to the intriguing format, a very limited number of copies will be issued with solid silver talismans made according to designs in the manuscript itself. The talismans produced by Volund Jewelry will be limited to just 26 copies in alignment with the deluxe format of the publication. In addition to the Special edition, the press has also issued a limited Deluxe edition and a Trade Letterpress edition. All three editions are printed in full color and feature the triangular shape.

Prices are $33 for the Trade Letterpress Edition, $225 for the Deluxe leather-bound edition, and $385 for the Special Edition with slipcase and solid silver talisman. For ordering and other details, visit the Ouroboros Press website.
