'George Robert Stowe Mead (1863 - 1933) was an English historian and writer who was a member of the Theosophical Society, as well as the founder of the Quest Society. Mead's writings dealt mainly with the Hermetica and Gnostic religions and he is probably best known for his "Thrice Greatest Hermes", a massive landmark translation and collection of Trismegistic Literature. This volume was originally written as a "preface" to a new edition of Thomas Taylor's "Select Works of Plotinus". CMead’s survey gives an account of Plotinus times, examines his system (drawing parallels with Eastern traditions) and gives a comprehensive bibliography of works published.'
