Holmes Publishing Group issues hand crafted monographs and seminal works in Hermetica, alchemy, magick, Kabbalah, and the ancient Mysteries. We offer several continuing study series on the Order of the Golden Dawn, Alchemy & Hermetica, Crowley-Thelema, Kabbalistic-Grimoire and other subjects. We are the distributors, wholesale and retail, in the USA, Canada, South America and the Pacific Rim for the following publishing firms:  Starfire Publishing (UK), Holmes Publications [USA}, Xoanon / Three Hands Press (USA), The Jerusalem Press (UK), and Ajna Publishing (USA).

When you order multiple titles, we adjust the shipping total when we charge your order in order to reflect a more exact figure for both international and domestic parcels. If you have a need for a special title, or list of titles, but don't see them in our on-line catalogue, we will be pleased to search our off-line inventory, and report to you personally.

We issue a printed antiquarian catalogue each year with the next being Catalogue 131. These titles are not placed on the Web (even on this site) until after our long term customers have had ample opportunity to purchase those of interest. Please let us know your subject interest if you would like to participate.
