Egyptian Magic by Florence Farr

Post  dirkcloete on Tue Aug 04, 2009 4:50 am

Egyptian Magic Collectanea Hermetica Volume VIII
FARR, Florence (writing as 'S. S. D. D. ') edited by W. Wynn Westcott
Published in 1896

Also written for the Collectanea Hermetica, but quite able to stand on its own, is Egyptian Magic. Based on Egyptian Texts she studied at the British Museum, Florence showed the parallels between Egyptian Magic and the Hermetic, Kabbalistic, Alchemical and Rosicrucian Works. She used the Egyptian texts to serve as models for ritual invocations of Godforms and Symbols to awaken and cultivate the dormant faculties of human nature so one can become Osirus, the Perfected One.

Here's more info via Weiser Antiquarian:

London: Aquarian Press, 1983. Second Impression Softcover. 8vo. xviii + 85pp (1pp advert). Illustrated. An essay on the nature and applications of magical practices in ancient Egypt. First published in 1896 as Volume VIII in the Collectanea Hermetica series, edited by W. Wynn Westcott, one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. 'S. S. D. D.' - the initials under which it was published - stand for 'Sapientia Sapienti Dona Data', the magical motto of Florence Farr. This new edition comes with an introduction by Timothy D'Arch-Smith.

See also the Hermetic Fellowship:

It is our intention that the Hermetic Virtual Library will eventually include all of the texts from Westcott’s original Collectanea Hermetica, along with many other texts of interest to students of the Hermetic Tradition.
