Good to see this on here. Augustus Knapp who did art pages for The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Hall is one of the greatest mystic illustrators of all time.

One of the Tarot decks I covet is the Alchemical Tarot by Robert Michael Place. It's just gorgeous and looks very very in depth in terms of the subject matter. Alchemy is one of those subjects where I'm absolutely fascinated by the history around it.

I'm confused why you would link to the Unification Church fork of Wikipedia, rather than Wikipedia itself.

For those looking for the source texts the esoteric archive is still up, in all it's early web glory (previously).

Seconding Manly P Hall - he has many lectures available on Youtube that are really quite amazing.
