Summary:

This is Volume 2 (The Pymander of Hermes) of 7 Volumes. From the Preface: "THIS volume contains the English translation by Dr. Everard, 1650, of seventeen tracts (of which the Pymander is one) attributed to Hermes Trismegistos, otherwise Mercurius Termaximus, or in the Egyptian language, Thoth, or Taautes or Tat. Of this Hermes no reliable historical details have come down to us, but many of the ancient authors have referred to Hermes as an inspired teacher who instructed the priests and rulers of the Egyptian nation at a time almost certainly anterior to that commonly associated with Moses."
