‘Salamander and Sons: the presses stopped’

Atalanta Fugiens by Michael Maier, 1618.

“According to Paracelsus, the salamander lives in fire, but not in dark, material fire, but rather in the essential ‘spirit-fire of nature.’”

Alexander Roob
Alchemy and Mysticism

Another essential publisher has gone out of business. From the unhappy publicity:

Closure Announcement

Salamander and Sons collapsed financially, and ceased publishing operations effective 31 December 2015.

The press will remain partially operational, until its complete closure on 31 March 2016.

During the first quarter of 2016, it will remain possible to purchase titles from the Salamander and Sons back list, consisting of books published between 2007 and 2015.

All remaining Salamander and Sons stock will be heavily discounted, as any stock unsold after 31 March 2016 will be destroyed.

Wholesale and other bulk orders are encouraged, as such orders will be even more heavily discounted.

Sales revenue generated will be utilized to square accounts with authors, process refunds of pre-orders for two failed fine binding projects, and to settle with creditors.

Note that it may take until 30 June 2016 for all matters administrative (including refunds, etc.) to be tended to. Thanks for your understanding.

Click here to see the remaining stock available to you. Titles by Greer, Hardacre, Millar, and others should be snapped up.
