ALCHEMY AND HERMETIC MAILING LIST

NEWSLETTER No 4 - April 1997

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Complete sets of the Hermetic Journal 1978-1992 are now available as 8 substantial hardbound volumes (totalling about 2400 pages) in the same style as the Magnum Opus books. Two years are bound into each volume of approximately 320 pages.
Although the cost of this complete edition, around 360, may be thought expensive, it is on closer inspection a bit of a bargain. The original 15 paperbound volumes for each year cost 20 each - thus to buy the fifteen back issues would have cost 300. The hardbound edition is only a little bit more expensive. I will hold this price for the initial batch, but cannot guarantee to hold the price at this level for subsequent batches. The first batch of only 10 copies is now available. As binding up the 80 books required to make 10 sets necessitates an enormous investment of my time, I will only be able to produce a few batches a year taking into account my other commitments. So only a very small number of copies will be available for sale each year. As these 8 hardback books weigh over 6 kilograms postage costs are a significant factor.

This hardback series of 8 volumes of about 2400 pages in all costs:-
360.00 including Air mail.
335.00 including surface mail or Europe postage.
320.00 inclusive to UK addresses only.
