Basilius Valentinus and his Tinctures


Basilius Tinctures of Antimony

Dr. D.A.Schein

BASILIUS VALENTINUS AND HIS TINCTURES FROM ANTIMONY began as a doctoral thesis of Dr. Schein with the University of Munich, and was originally published in German in 1977. It reproduces the procedures set out in the famous alchemical manuscript The Triumphal Chariot of Antimony, by basil Valentine. Dr. Schein proves that modern day alchemists should not shun the growing body of knowledge available since days of old, while, on the other hand, science based investigations of alchemical text would do good not to ignore the alchemists viewpoint as outdated and irrelevant. Ideally, interest in Alchemy will neither remain in the past nor disregard the past, but will help translate alchemical concepts and results into languages used today.

Voyages in Kaleidoscoperead more


Voyages in Kaleidoscope

B.R.A.I. Hillel-Erlanger

VOYAGES IN KALEIDOSCOPE is a little dadaist style book which undeniably reveals the Great Work. It is a must for all those involled in some form of Inner Work or practical Qabalah — the journeymen who seek the uncharted realms, the maze with its own order and images in kaleidoscope. The book was originally published in French, in the autumn of 1919. Shortly after publication in Paris, all copies of the book were confiscated and pulped. A few copies were overseen. Translated into English for the first time, it is now offered through Inner Garden Press. Enjoy this poetic little novel.

Chivalry: Mystical Origins of Knightood


Chivalry

Pierre Dujols de Valois

CHIVALRY reveals a side of knighthood that seems to have been overlooked by main stream historians. Pierre Dujols was known as one of the more advanced practical alchemists of the early 20th century. He had a keen interest in the chivalric tradition which is not surprising considering the more than coincidental link between knighthood and alchemy that has been found throughout history. In this unfinished manuscript Pierre Dujols unravels a secret tradition that has been an undercurrent of Mystical and Knightly Orders.

Two Alchemical Abodes


Two Alchemical Abodes

E. Canseliet F.C.H.

TWO ALCHEMICAL ABODES is one of the first books of Eug?ne Canseliet, reminiscent of Fulcanelli’s Mystery of the Cathedrals and Dwellings of the Philosophers. In his unique periphrastic way Canseliet here delights the reader with his observations on another two dwellings that must have belonged to alchemists: The castle of Plessis-Bourr? and the Villa of Palombara of which now only the remarkable Alchemical Door remains. Submerge yourself in the fantastic world of the philosophers of old and prepare to enter an uncharted realm of wonder.

The Book of Images without Words


Mutus Liber Magophon

P. Dujols de Valois (Br. Magophon)

THE BOOK OF IMAGES WITHOUT WORDS is the English translation of the masterful commentary on the Mutus Liber by Pierre Dujols de Valois (Br. Magophon). The Mutus Liber was first published in 1677, by an author called Altus. The book contained only images, no words, and desribed a certain path to the Philosopher’s Stone. Magaphon was looked upon as the expert-alchemist by many of the Parisian occultists of his time, and some believe he was in close contact with Fulcanelli. A rough translation of Magaphon’s commentary was done by Kjell Hellesoe in 1985, but this translation left much to be desired. Inner Garden has redone the translation, and included high quality reproductions of the emblems.

An Experiment With Time


Hermetic Treasure Lalande

J.W. Dunne

AN EXPERIMENT WITH TIME provides a unique angle of perspective on the potential of nocturnal dreams. It leads reader into the enigmatic realm to which dreams form a gate. This profoundly stirring and fascinating classic opened up many readers to join the author’s gaze towards new and vast horizons and the Outline, at the time, even reviewed the first edition of his book as follows: ‘The day may come — will probably come — when the world will consider this as the most important book of our age. There are many people even now. who say that it will revolutionize our attitude towards the world we live in much as did the Origin of Species.’

Hermetic Treasure


Hermetic Treasure Lalande

Dr. E.H. Lalande (Marc Haven)

HERMETIC TREASURE: The Book of Images without Words (Mutus Liber) and the Symbolic Treatise on the Philosopher’s Stone is the title of the commentary on the Mutus Liber by Marc Haven (Dr. Emmanuel Henri Lalande). Alledgedly it was the first commentary on the enigmatic mute book. The original edition of the commentary from 1914 appeared just before Magophon’s in that same year. The commentary is exceedingly short and as such stands in stark contrast with the verbose title page of the work. Some would say it has very little to offer compared with the commentary of Magophon or that of Canseliet. However, those fascinated by the Mutus Liber will consider this first commentary to be a must-have.

The Golden Chain of Homer


Hermetic Treasure Lalande

Anonymous

THE GOLDEN CHAIN OF HOMER: Part 3 of Aurea Catena Homeri, 1654: Here is presented, for the first time in the English language, the much prized Third Part of The Golden Chain of Homer. It concerns an anonymous book associated with the same author as that of the famous and well-known Aurea Catena Homeri. In many respects it could be considered the most significant part. It presents a broad range of alchemical doctrines and practices for accomplishing various tinctures and philosophical products, both by the Long Way as well as the Short Way, either by an undetermined matter or by many determined matters from the metallic kingdom, all based on the solid foundations of Alchemy. It should be noted that this is Third Part from 1654 is different than the version that was made available on the Alchemy Website.

The Alchemy of the Mason


Hermetic Treasure Lalande

Fran?ois-Nicolas N?el

THE ALCHEMY OF THE MASON: This richly illustrated book is spell binding to flip through. It clearly is the product of love. Part I alone contains over a hundred ornate diagrams and figures which, through an intricate web associations by names, numbers and images dealing with Masonic and Alchemical tenets, invites the reader to a deeper awareness of the fabric of our universe. Publications from Inner Garden Press generally involve practical Alchemy ? both inner alchemy and lab alchemy ? but this book stands apart for reason of a distinctly theoretical-philosophical approach towards a synthesis of alchemical, Rosicrucian and Freemasonic imagery, illustrated with countless drawings and diagrams. Since the book is the summum bonum in its field, Inner Garden Press is proud to present it in English for the first time and so allow our readers insight in the Art of Alchemy from the Freemasonic perspective.

Elixir of Long Life

A. Barbault

THE ELIXIR OF LONG LIFE is the first work from the French alchemist Armand Barbault (1906 - 1974) who wrote under the pseudonym of Rum?lius.

Alchemy and its Mute Book


Alchemy and its Mute Book

E. Canseliet F.C.H.

ALCHEMY AND ITS MUTE BOOK. In the year of foundation in 2010, we published Br. Magaphon?s commentary on the Mutus Liber ? the Book Without Words. This year we offer commentary on the Mutus Liber from Magaphon?s friend and associate: Eug?ne Canseliet. Canseliet had a most pivotal role in the transmission of the alchemical tradition in Europe in the 20th century. Canseliet may not quite touch upon the innermost secrets of the book, as becomes obvious from the preface, yet this book still offers a most formidable insight in the Visual Language of the Alchemists of old.

The Waking Dream in Psychotherapy


Waking Dream

Dr. R. Desoille

THE WAKING DREAM IN PSYCHOTHERAPY: Essay on the Regulating Function of the Collective Unconscious could be considered Desoille’s masterpiece on the internal journey by way of the Waking Dream. He extensively explores the benefits of the descent and makes use of this as a technique with a specific application. It is exciting to read how he and his subjects pioneer into the darkness that comes with the descent, where subjects enter a chasm or a pit to venture into subterranean worlds. Going deeper and deeper, his subjects discover the nature of a vital force that eventually leads to a more profound understanding, balance and potential for sublimation during the ascent.

Psychoanalysis and Guided Imagery


Waking Dream

Dr. R. Desoille

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND GUIDED IMAGERY is a seminal work of one of the pioneers in the field of the Waking Dream. In 1923 Robert Desoille met Colonel Eug?ne Caslant, who introduced him to an experimental mental imaging technique, which Desoille later developed into the method of the ‘directed waking dream’ (r?ve eveill? dirig?, or RED). Desoille was influenced by Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung. Desoille’s pupils now define themselves as analysts and interpret their practice along Freudian, Freudo-Lacanian, or Jungian lines. Authors that cite Desoille’s work include Charles Baudouin, Gaston Bachelard, Juliette Favez-Boutonier, Fran?oise Dolto, and Daniel Lagache; parallels have also been drawn between Desoille’s work and that of Milton H. Erickson and neuro-linguistic programming.

Exploration of Subconscious Affectivity by the Method of the Waking Dream


Waking Dream

Dr. R. Desoille

EXPLORATION OF SUBCONCIOUS AFFECTIVITY BY THE METHOD OF THE WAKING DREAM presents Desoille’s first findings on the potential for sublimation and psychological acquisitions by way of the Waking Dream (r?ve eveill? dirig?, or RED). With the method of the waking dream we enter the domain of questions that do not always directly lead to answers ? we enter the domain of the magical, the supranormal, the domain where we are all connected and where time loosens its grip on our experience of life. Desoille is one of the first authors who has been able to approach this domain with both a scientific mindset and a mindset that is open towards everything science cannot yet explain. Desoille provides a formidable point of departure in common language that is understandable for the modern reader that has an interest in this intriguing inner realm that has so much in store for all of us. This book may prepare the reader to pass the threshold into this realm, into the Garden of the Philosophers and Inner Sanctum. Inner Garden Press is proud to offer an English translation of this work for the benefit of the greater community.

Guide to Meditation


Anleitung zu Meditation

Dr. C. Happich

GUIDE TO MEDITATION captures half a lifetime of experience of the German doctor Carl Happich. Together with a circle of likeminded friends he was involved in a profound discipline of meditation that provides a sort of passageway to the inner realm within us. The meditation method elaborated by Happich consists of a number of subsequent stages of visualizations that were carried out against the backdrop of certain predetermined scenes such as a meadow, a mountain, and a chapel. These meditations formed a point of departure for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes which quickly gained merit.

Mental Imagination: Introduction to Oneirotherapy


Mental Imagination

Dr. A. Virel and Dr. R. Fr?tigny

MENTAL IMAGINATION presents the well documented research by the psychiatrist Fr?tigny and doctor of psychology Virel on the various theoretical schools and methods of Mental Imagery used in psychotherapeutic practice. Oneirotherapy is the term they coined for their holistic approach of psychotherapy using the material constituted by mental images. While this approach expanded on the findings of Desoille and his Directed Waking Dream, Oneirotherapy tended towards a less directive and more free-form and client-centered approach of the inward journey. Fr?tigny and Virel?s must be credited for bringing Mental Imagination to a higher degree of detail and legitimacy as well as for expanding the understanding on the therapeutic processes and pitfalls involved.

The Science Of Alchymy


Science of Alchymy

Dr. W.W. Westcott (Br. Sapere Aude)

THE SCIENCE Of ALCHYMY is a short treaty in which Sapere Aude defines alchemy in clear terms. Sapere Aude is a pseudonym of William Wynn Westcott, one of the founders of the Golden Dawn. The early Golden Dawn had a distinct alchemical curriculum, reminiscent of the Gold und Rozenkreuz. Westcott proposes that Alchemy has two aspects: the simply material, and the religious. The dogma that Alchemy was only a form of chemistry, is untenable by anyone who has read the works of its chief professors. The doctrine that Alchemy was religion only, and that its chemical references were all blinds, is equally untenable in the face of history. This book is as much true today as it was at the time of its original publication in 1893.

Dr. D.A.Schein

THE PARACHEMISTRY COLLECTION of Dr. Schein gives a unique insight into the teachings of the Paracelsus College of the 1970s. The book in part reads like a manual on the subject of Alchemy and in part is a historical record of the Paracelsus Research Society and Paralab. The laboratory section includes detailed instructions on a wide range of techniques and operations that are relevant to the spagyric art.

The Psychological Effects of Peyote


Study of Peyote

Dr. R. Desoille

In this study the master of the Waking Dream, Robert Desoille, explores the visions and pyschological effects induced by Peyote. Desoille conducted this research at a time when he was only just beginning to explore the mechanics of the Waking Dream out of a curiosity in what way psychedelic substances might benefit or influence creative visualizations.

Dreams and the Ways to Direct Them


Reves

L?on le Marquis d?Hervey-Saint-Denys

This an important book from the father of modern lucid dreaming, Marquis d?Hervey de Saint-Denys. In 1982 an abridged translation of this book appeared which unfortunately was missing part 2 of the book, its appendix, as well as sections from part 1 and 3. Inner Garden Press now publishes the complete book for the benefit of all students of oneirology and explorers of the dreamworld. Since a native speaker review of the third part of the book is not yet complete, the book is offered at the current reduced price.

ABOUT INNER GARDEN PRESS



The Inner Garden foundation was legally established in 2010 and that same year the first publications, of Inner Garden came out: The Science Of Alchymy, by Sapere Aude, The Book of Images without Words (Mutus Liber), by Magophon, and Basilius Valentinus and his Tinctures from Antimony, by Dr. Schein. These books were all published as ebooks.

In those early days we did not bring out any hardbacks. The only tangeable print that was made was a traditional letterpress project of Inner Garden’s certificate which was done on Fabrioni 100% cotton paper with a Thompson Platen Press.

In 2015 Inner Garden published its first hardcovers with a focus on quality and craftmanship. Offset was chosen in favour of letterpress but again with the highest quality inks and 100% cotton paper. All hardbacks are released as limited editions, both the Fine Bindings and the highly limited Legendary Edition.

Inner Garden Press aims to continue bring out a small selection of quality books. Quality in content and unparalleled durability and craftmanship in print and binding. Inner Garden books are meant to last hundreds of years.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



Why do the hardcovers cost a fortune?

Our Kindle Edition is what we see as our regular edition. The investment in an e-reader is no longer a stumbling-block and e-ink readers nowadays provide a comfortable way to bring your books with you everywhere. Those who like to keep a library will appreciate the quality of our Fine Bindings because there is nothing like the look of fine leather with subtle gilding on the spine.

Once you have held our Fine Bindings in your hand, your definition of a regular book might not be the same. The rest of your stack of books might suddenly seem like a mere bulk of paper.

Can the hardcovers be made cheaper?

The handwork and time that goes into making a french style binding is what makes it expensive. Ask any established bookbinder for a price of French style bindings, made the traditional way (bound on cord and with hand-embroidered headbands).

Why did IG Press choose such a way of binding?

French style bindings are the epitome of class and durablity. They look great and last forever. It is said that a small child can hang on to the book without tearing it. We believe it is better to acquire a few books of quality than a whole library lesser books in a lifetime. Print-on-demand books with glued backs will at some point start to fall apart. Our fine bindings can be enjoyed for many generations.
