GATEWAYS THROUGH STONE AND CIRCLE by Frater Ashen Chassan (Limited Edition Hardcover)

2-561_zpsfrx4vivw

“Gateways Through Stone and Circle” is a compendium of personal experiences and research from a traditional ceremonial magician working through a classical book of magic. This volume is a complete and in-depth study in the “Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals” as found in Francis Barrett’s, The Magus, and accredited to Trithemius of Spanheim. Detailed research, personal experimentation, and evoking each of the seven planetary archangels and intelligences to visible and auditory presence are presented within.

You will find descriptions of the seven planetary archangels as witnessed by author, instructions for building each of the traditional implements and furniture to the specifications of the grimoire, as well as detailed illustrations of the author’s actual equipment. Items such as the infamous Book of Spirits or Liber Spirituum are explained in detail so the reader will know how to make and use one. Chapters also describe methods for improving scrying abilities, working with a partner, and conducting the entire ceremony from beginning to end. Everything to make this artwork is explained in incredibly vivid detail.

THE BOOK OF SMOKELESS FIRE by S. Ben Qayin (Limited Edition Hardcover)

2-559_zpsnke9jr2s

One of only 500 hand numbered cloth bound copies with sewn in ribbon bookmark and pictorial endpapers.

Book is in new unread condition.

“The work that is being presented in “The Book of Smokeless Fire” is based on a very little known and overlooked Solomonic text simply known as “Miscelaneo de Salomon”, which amazingly mirrors that of Lovecraft’s, “Necronomicon” both in content and history. It is an ancient and forbidden Arabian manuscript, that seems was later evolved into the Greek “Goetia” and gives the earliest known account of King Solomon and his binding of the seventy-two sinister Djinn he sealed away in the infamous brass container.
In “The Book of Smokeless Fire”, the ancient manuscript has now been reworked into a completely new system, utilizing revolutionary evocation technology, to again call upon the ancient and destructive Djinn, whose names have been concealed for centuries…”
Author S. Ben Qayin has outdone himself with this stunning interpretation and cohesive reworking of a long lost magickal discipline. The Book of Smokeless Fire is over 190 pages of pure magickal knowledge laid out in an easy to read format that really flows. With no fluff, filler, and no nonsense, Qayin manages to take what some have dabbled in and written about in the past and open it up into a fully workable system of magick.

The Holy Guardian Angel. On the practice and experience of the Holy Guardian Angel edited by Michael Cecchetelli (Limited Edition Hardcover)

2-558_zpse4pz4s0g

One of only 500 hand numbered hardcover limited edition copies! Book is in new unread condition.

From the publisher:

We did something different with this book. We sent out digital copies for review by practicing Occultists. They asked for no compensation and they will not receive anything from us. I thought that one review in particular really captured what the book is all about so well that I decided to include it here because I couldn’t do a better job of writing it up. It’s hard to improve on someone’s honest opinion. The following is taken from the Blog: The Digital Ambler, an Occult Blog.

” Whether you’ve already had contact with your HGA, or even already reached the grade of Ipsissimus in the Golden Dawn, or even are a newcomer to Hermetic magic generally, Fr. MC’s book “The Holy Guardian Angel” is going to be a wealth of information and practice for you. It’ll give you things to look forward to if you don’t yet have contact with your HGA, and it’ll give you plenty to chew on if you already do (or think you do). The book is one of the closest things we have to a textbook on working with the HGA especially when paired with things like the Book of Abramelin or Liber Samekh, but it’s also definitely one of the most approachable texts out there. To see the words and minds of these magicians put together in a single volume on a complicated subject is a treat, both intellectually and spiritually, and definitely a must-have for ceremonial magicians.

KEYS OF OCAT by S. Connolly (Limited Edition Hardcover)

2-560_zpsbqrs0ypl

The Keys of Ocat reveals the never before published Saturn rites, seals, and theophantic gate opening rituals of Ocat, the abyssal gatekeeper of the dead. Behind His gates dwell the Daemons of death including Euronymous, Balberith, Bune, Hekate, Frucisierre, and many others. These blood magick rituals, talismans and seals will aid the advanced magician in conjuring Daemons to speak with the dead, commune with death, and discover the true meaning of mortality and spiritual immortality. Be forewarned, however, Ocat is not known to be a friendly gatekeeper to all magi who approach Him, and the Daemons behind His gates are some of the most terrifying of their nature.

This edition of Keys of Ocat are 6″x9″, heavy cream, smythe sewn, archival quality paper. The LIbrary Edition, in only 450 copies, is bound in Red cloth and has gold foil stamping.

THE BOOK OF AZAZEL by E. A. Koetting (Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover)

2-386_zpscbsamywv

This is a deluxe, bound in leather, limited edition of only 77 copies. This being number 51. Book is in fine condition.

From the author:

“That which follows is the entirety of what I learned from the Demon during a ninety-day journey through hell, with Azazel as my guide. To Azazel… I can only trust that when this work is completed, he will set me free. Azazel is the embodiment of all that is forbidden, all that is secret, and all that I would sacrifice everything for. He called upon me to perform this damnable Operation: to commit myself to Him entirely, in order to possess all that is His. But fear overtook me. I didn’t feel ready to drink from that cup, and so I drank from many others, flirting with the power that I knew could only be found in the blackest of rites and through the most obscene pacts. The Demon’s call would not be silenced, and it forced me out of the serenity of Ascent, leaving me with no choice than to embrace the power of darkness, in a depth and intensity that I had never before imagined. The Book of Azazel initially seemed to mark my return to the Left Hand Path, to the sinister spirituality responsible for catapulting me into the knowledge and application of my own godhood. As the grimoire unfolded, day-by-day, what the Demon Azazel revealed to me obliterated every assumption that I’ve ever made, and has left me with little else to say. The magnitude of Azazel’s teachings have left me speechless, for the first time in decades. What is recorded in this book: the rituals, the evocations, and the revelations.. says all that can ever be said, and much, much more. It has also left me with the conviction that real power – the kind that can crumble nations and raise empires out of the sand – can only be found in the forbidden, in the demonic, beyond the horizon of damnation. And so I tremble as I present The Book of Azazel.”

KINGDOMS OF FLAME by Archaelus Baron (E.A. Koetting) Hardcover Edition

2-450_zpsli7byqs5

Kingdoms Of Flame: A Grimoire Of Black Magick, Evocation, and Sorcery (2008). Hardcover. Second Edition. Limited print run of 200 copies. This copy is signed and inscribed by E.A. Koetting.

A very dark modern-day grimoire of black magick, evocation and sorcery, which provides access to the Kingdoms of Flame, providing numerous magic squares and sigils for the Grand Demons, Angels, Demons & Spirits of the Regnum Spiritus. Its publication was sanctioned by the Grand Emissaries of the Ordo Ascensum Aetyrnalis (OAA). Originally, this grimoire had taken the form of a manuscript, which had been known as the Skeleton Cipher. It had been divided into 3 separate parts, with each part, having been placed in an envelope, and entrusted to a secret guardian. When it was decided by the Grand Emissaries of the OAA, that it was time for the manuscript to be published, the 3 guardians were called. Each brought along an envelope, which contained one of the 3 parts. All 3 envelopes were then handed to Koetting, who was then given the task of working, for the first time with the complete manuscript, deciphering it, and translating it, into a form that could be published. This book is not for novices!

This book has been beautifully produced, with a silver blocked seal on the front cover, and ornately designed gothic borders, framing the text on each page. Kingdoms of Flame was his first book, and many consider it to be his best. The Skeleton Cipher manuscript grimoire, which is translated & presented in this book, is the KEY to the Trilogy of Works that followed: Works of Darkness, Baneful Magick, & Evoking Eternity. Without this volume, the other 3 books can only be partially understood & worked with.
