Attractively illustrated printed stapled wrappers, B/w illustrations, many full page alchemical illustrations, list of references. Eight consecutive issues, the first two years, of this quarterly journal edited by Al Billings and John Michael Greer, and published from 1995-1997. "Caduceus" focused on the Hermetic tradition in its broadest sense, including esoteric philosophy, Qabalah, ceremonial magic, alchemy, and the systems of thought and practice associated with Hermetic orders such as the Golden Dawn and the Martinist Order. The goal of the journal was the creation of a bridge between the academic world and the world of the practicing Hermeticist, in which scholars and practitioners of the Hermetic arts and traditions can find common ground and it thus includes articles from a range of perspectives - scholarly, theoretical, and practical.
