Book Details + Condition: H.O. Wagner (Denver, CO). Early Reprint Edition, 1963. Complete in 2 volumes. By Thomas Burgoyne. 289 pp and 212 pp. "The tome overall focuses on the search for spiritual truth. According to the author, the methods date back to ancient Egypt and Chaldea. It contains some of the most effective spiritual instruction ever used. The author was well-schooled in wisdom from around the world, often referring to Hermetic, Kabalistic, Theosophical, and Buddhist principles. The book is divided into two parts: 'The Science of the Soul' and 'The Science of the Stars.' It explores karma, immortality, reincarnation, and the human soul in depth, plus chapters on The Mysteries of Sex, The Realm of Spirit, Alchemy, astrology and the zodiac. This guidebook is meant for slow and serious study, for those wishing to attain wisdom as opposed to knowledge. Volume Two continues where Part One left off within the areas of the zodiac and astro-theology. This is advanced information, written at a higher level than Volume One. It contains more information on astrology than one will likely to see. It is a small occult library in itself, commonly used as a text for esoteric knowledge, whether alone or part of a group. Both books contain spiritual truths not found elsewhere, mostly concerned with mans place in the universe, both here and after death."Firm binding; rubbed corners and edges; wear to boards, with scuffing present; old catalogue number to bottom spines, with repaired bit to Vol 1; toned endpapers; small stamps to title pages; scuffing to rear endpapers; slight warping to tops of both volumes' pages, with an old water stain to rear of Vol I; interior is free of markings. Please see below for more information on the author, Thomas Burgoyne.
Thomas Henry Burgoyne (born Thomas Dalton) 1855 – 1894 was a Scottish occultist, who founded the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor in Britain and was an editor of the The Occult Magazine. Burgoyne moved to America, wrote The Light of Egypt, and founded the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light in America. Burgoyne was a staunch advocate of homeopathy, and he was a colleague of William Alexander Ayton, Emma Hardinge Britten, Peter Davidson, Gerard Anaclet Vincent Encausse, Hargrave Jennings, Kenneth Robert Henderson MacKenzie, Paulos Metamon, Paschal Beverly Randolph, Max Theon, John Yarker and many others. The Hermetic Brotherhood of Light was structured with three leaders, a seer, a scribe/secretary, and an astrologer. Burgoyne became the scribe. As Burgoyne understood it, the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light was an occult order formed to oppose the dominant religious powers of the day in ancient Egypt. As the members died, they continued the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light from their new plane of being.
