Charity Shop Find: The Hermeticism Collection for 25p

I do love it when I find a treasure in a charity shop. Yesterday I picked up the book in the photo - The Hermeticism Collection - for just 25p, which has to be a bargain. Doing a bit of research when I got home, I discovered the book is an indie-published collection of writings associated with Hermeticism: The Kybalion, Corpus Hermeticum: The Divine Pymander of Hermes, and The Life and Teachings of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus. It was printed by Amazon via CreateSpace in 2018.

Admittedly some reviews of the collection are critical. They point out that the Kybalion is a New Thought work dating to the early 20th century rather than an ancient text - which I already knew - and that the other translations are a bit old. Other reviews said it was a decent enough collection and I'm certainly not going to grumble for a mere 25p.

If you've had an interesting esoteric or witchy charity shop find, please let me know as I'd be happy to mention it on the blog. You can email
