Renowned esoteric scholar Manly P. Hall gives us an overview of the history of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus. He begins with a short piece of fiction, which he was known to do, in which he illustrates the tale of Hermes defeating a dragon in a temple, as the neophyte and initiator observe.
Moving to nonfiction, he discusses the identity of Hermes, the lost writings of Hermes, the Book of Thoth in particular, an introduction to Poimandres, and ends with his simplified and condensed translation of Poimandres.
