Hermetic Journal

The "Hermetic Journal" started out as a quarterly journal dedicated to the hermetic tradition, edited by Adam McLean. The first issue was released in August 1978 and publication continued until 1992.

The "Hermetic Journal" explored alchemy and hermetic philosophy from various angles and attracted a wide range of contributors. It addressed a readership which had a deep interest in hermeticism and although the editor was open to articles of a speculative nature he always tried to encourage scholarly research into hermetic philosophy. It was primarily available only through subscription, and had a small circulation of about three to four hundred readers. It did not attempt to proselytise or reach a wider readership, but built up a network of people interested in furthering the investigation of alchemy and hermetic philosophy.

Back issues of the "Hermetic Journal" are still available bound in paperback editions (about 176 pages), each covering a year. The entire back issues of the "Hermetic Journal" is now available on [http://www.alchemywebsite.com/bookshop/hj_cdrom.html CD-ROM] .
