LIBER FALXIFER I: The Book of the Left Handed Reaper by N.A-A.218 (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

The 2nd edition of this book was limited to 700 copies in total, and is hand-numbered

Book is in fine unread condition.

Liber Falxifer is the long awaited book that reveals the secret teachings of the Necrosophic Cult within the Current 218. This book of the Scythe-Bearer provides a solid theoretical, historical and mythical foundation for the Cult of the Left-Handed Reaper, and offers clear instruction for ritual practice connected to both the folk-magical tradition, as well as the more sinister, hidden line of traditional witchcraft connected to the Cult of the Skeletal Lord of the Bloody Scythe. The basis for the various forms of magic presented in Liber Falxifer is a dark form of telestic fetishism steeped in the forbidden and concealed traditions of both necromantia and necromageia, as practiced within the many clandestine magical paths connected to the Lord of All Graves.

 

LIBER FALXIFER III: The book of 52 Stations of the Crosses of Nod by N.A-A.218 (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

 

Limited Edition Hardcover, in black cloth with a gold stamping of Insignia of The Lord of the Crossroads of Nod on the cover, 276 pages, black embossed endpapers, black silk-ribbon bookmark. Full colour dustjacket. First Edition of 1300 copies, each book consecrated and hand numbered.  Book has gentle bump to bottom corners otherwise fine condition.

The Third Book of Falxifer focuses in its entirety on the Four Lines of the Necrosophic Qayinite Path and upon the aspects and virtues of the Master and what we within the Current 182 understand as being His main Points of Becoming and Overcoming, disclosing for the first time the specific essences presented earlier in the necessitated more ‘general forms of codifications’ that had to be employed before this current state of the unfolding of the Path of Reddened Thorns, Gilded Bones and Black Fire.

HOLY DAIMON by Frater Acher (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

Limited to 600 hand numbered copies, bound in an earthen grey bookcloth stamped in black and gold, with embossed black endpapers.  192 pages, 6×9 with 13 black and white photography by the author. Published in 2018

Book is in near fine condition

Holy Daimon is the result of more than ten years of ritual and theoretical magical research, the book is comprised of three parts: History, Memory and Practice, providing a well-grounded introduction, as well as a practical path to creating communion with one’s holy daimon.

KHIAZMOS: A Book Without Pages by Andrew D. Chumbley (DELUXE Leatherbound LImited Edition Hardcover in Slipcase)

This deluxe edition is in new unread condition and is limited to only 72 hand numbered copies, half bound in leather and marbled boards in custom slipcase

The grimoire articulates the paradoxical arcanum of Opposition — an essential dynamic force of Sabbatic Witchcraft — which animates the Art of Magic itself, through aphoristic formulae. Like the mystical formats of the riddle, parable, and koan, the book utilizes strategies of arcane, recursive exposition to express transcendent truths about magic, the spirit world, the stance of the sorcerer, and the Sabbat of the Witches. The living book, as conceived in the Vision of the Scribe, possessed the power to transcend its material corpus, and simultaneously write and unwrite itself as it was read, creating the titular ‘absence’ of pages. The title is derived from the Greek “chiasmus”, indicating a literary, or rhetorical, device in which concepts are expressed in a forward or standard form and then in reverse order. Each aphorism may thus be viewed as an absence and a presence.

 

LUCIFER: Princeps by Peter Grey (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover in Custom Traycase) Import

Dawn Breaker’ edition bound in full emerald morocco, all edges gilt, custom peacock marbled endpapers, and presented in a solander traycase. One of only 81 hand numbered copies.

Lucifer: Princeps is a seminal study on the origins of the Lucifer mythos by Peter Grey. It is the first in a two volume work; the companion volume, Praxis, being an exposition of ritual actions, is due to be published in 2016.

The fall of Lucifer, and that of the rebel angels who descended upon the daughters of men, comprise the foundation myth of the Western occult tradition. Lucifer: Princeps is a study of origins, a portrait of the first ancestor of witchcraft and magic. In tracing the genealogy of our patron and prince, the principles that underlie the ritual forms that have come down to us, through the grimoires and folk practices, are elucidated. The study draws on the extensive literature of history, religion and archaeology, engaging with the vital discoveries and advances of recent scholarship, which render previous works on Lucifer, however well intentioned, out of date. A concomitant exegesis of the core texts conjures the terrain and koine of the Ancient Near East, the cradle cultures and language of his nascence. Of critical importance are the effaced cultures and cults that lie behind the Old Testament polemics, viz. those of Assyria, Ugarit and Canaan, as well as Sumeria, Egypt and Greece; they provide the context that give meaning to what would otherwise be an isolated brooding figure, one who makes no sense without being encountered in the landscape.

A. and O.T.O., his ‘Magical Son’ and heir-apparent, involved in magical operations such as the Amalantrah Working of 1918. However, Jones began to develop and express his own vision of a forthcoming Aeon of Truth and Justice, as foreshadowed in the third chapter of “The Book of the Law”, an enigmatic text of three short chapters transmitted to Crowley in 1904 by a praeter-human Intelligence, Aiwass.

THE HANGED GOD: Odinn Grimnir by Shani Oates (Trade Paperback Edition)

Challenging former atrophied or outdated knowledge regarding Óðinn’s acquisition of the runes and the mead of poetry, this extensive and intense study revisits Hávamál, Vǫluspá, Skáldskaparmál, Grímnismál, Heimskringla and Ynglinga Sagas specifically, to unravel and reconnect crucial factors that collectively reveal a magical formula for rebirth and resurrection…

 

(h)Auroræ by Gabriel McCaughry (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

 

Limited Edition Hardcover of only 500 hand numbered copies.  Book is in new unread condition

5.25 x 8.5 inches. 304 pages. Hardbound 100pts, Tele Legatoria ‘Bronze’ bookbinding Cloth from Italy. Gold foil blocking on rounded spine and on the cover. Colour interior, with fully illustrated Endpapers. Thoroughly illustrated throughout by José Gabriel Alegría Sabogal, Fine typography, printed on Cougar Natural 160M archive-quality paper. Individually hand-numbered

(h)Auroræ is a mystifying, albeit utterly profound journey. Part ontological synthesis, philosophical rambling, magickal diary, visual grimoire, inspired mystical poem, revelatory/individuation process, and part alchemical vessel of expression, the book exists under the umbrella of what the author refers to as ‘Gnostic Luciferianism.’ First and foremost, however, (h)Auroræ exists as an act of eternal remembrance.

Description

The transgressive cultus of the wild, blood-thirsty and demon-slaying Matrikas (“little Mothers”) is amongst the most fascinating but least treated areas of South Asian spirituality and magic. Exploring the rich history of the Matrika Cult as well as the tantric background in which it has survived, Ferocious takes the reader deep into initiatic terrain. The goddesses are examined as a group followed by chapters for each individual Matrika, elaborating Her unique origins, iconography and mantras. An appendix offers a full treatise on an eighth Matrika sometimes worshipped with the other seven.

OF COSMOGONIC EROS by Ludwig Klages (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

Description

Theion Publishing is proud to release the first-ever English translation of one of the most important metaphysical works of the 20th century: Of Cosmogonic Eros by the German visionary Ludwig Klages. This monograph is dedicated entirely to an in-depth examination of the mysteries of Eros and the most powerful forms of ecstasy. Here Klages presents a pandaemonic vision of becoming which is inextricably linked to an Eros whose elemental power shatters everyday consciousness and mates the individual to the secrets of the cosmos. The author seeks to restore Eros to his true status and function by carefully distilling his essence against all falsifications and distortions. Showing how Eros is related to Thanatos and integral to every true cultus of the dead and ancestral worship, Klages leaves no doubt that only the Eroto-Gnostic holds the keys to authentic Life and the daemonic empowerment of the Cosmos.

 

THE FACELESS GOD by Dr. Tomas Vincente (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 700 hand bound limited edition hardcover.

Introduction by David Beth, Artwork by Mitchell Nolte, Complete with ritual instructions

This book of Left Hand Path theory and practice has been eagerly awaited since the first news about its coming-into-being was announced last year. We are certain that Dr. Vincente’s tome will meet the highest expectations and demands of all serious practitioners of the magical Art.

 

CHTHONIC GNOSIS: Ludwig Klages and his Quest for the Pandaemonic All by Dr. Gunnar Alksnis (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 720 copies bound in Telluric Brown fine cloth.

This groundbreaking release is the first authoritative work on Ludwig Klages and his pagan metaphysics ever to be published in English. Without a doubt Klages is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic pagan thinkers of the early 20th Century. A figure of great controversy he radically rejected Christianity and Monotheism in favor of a pan-daemonic paganism. Advocating the return to primordial states of consciousness through magico-erotic encounters with the living powers of the ensouled cosmos, Klages was a driving force in the notorious Cosmic Circle of German mystics. Masterfully expounding his vision of daemonic Life in disciplines as diverse as philosophy, poetry, metaphysics, psychology and graphology, he influenced many important contemporaries such as Hermann Hesse, Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt School, C.G. Jung, Martin Heidegger and others. The work of esoteric teachers such as Lama Anagarika Govinda, Michael Bertiaux and David Beth has been deeply inspired by the magical antinomian biocentrism of Klages. Misinterpreted, vilified and slandered, this great heretic and ‘high priest of the irrational’ remains virtually unknown in the English speaking world although his work may have never been more relevant.

Sermons to the Serpent’s Servants Vol. I: Mesocosm

Philosophical Implications of Luciferian Gnosis

 

by Jeremy Christner

Vol. I: Mesocosm is a deep dive into theory, simultaneously an analytic look at the problems of philosophy from the vantage of a Luciferian Gnostic, and a meditation on the implications of Luciferian Gnosis from a philosopher’s perspective. The threaded essays contained in this book cover various insights including the question of the existence and nature of God; the quality of Lucifer; epistemology in Gnosticism; Gnosticism as an Existentialist cosmology; the redundancy of Jesus Christ; the value of negativity in the arts and of blasphemy in practice; the definition of the self and the scope of one’s sphere of influence as a measure of existence; and more.

Sermons to the Serpent’s Servants Vol. I: Mesocosm is a mature evolution of the narrative woven by Jeremy Christner in his previous works, Kosmology and Lanterns of Wisdom From the Firmament. The author reveals his ideas and insights from a more contemplative perspective, employing a pragmatic approach and taking you on his personal journey of discovering and re-evaluating his own views on religion, ethics, Gnosticism and Luciferian-Satanism, and some of the more commonly pondered philosophical questions.

A worthy addition to the library of the Gnostic, the Luciferian, the philosopher, or the curious collector of ideas.

WOLFS-HEAD: Óðinn, The Ecstatic God of Tethers and Skin-Turning. By Shani Oates – Limited Edition Hardcover

 

Hardcover Edition (Limited to approx. 700 copies): 5.25 x 8.5 inches. 210 pages. Hardbound 90pts, Tele Legatoria Setalux Shimmering ‘Ice Blue’ bookbinding Cloth from Italy. Gold foil blocking on rounded spine and Blind Deboss on the cover. B&W & Colour interior, with Eclipse, Coarse Grain texture, Endpapers. Illustrated throughout by Blood & Fire Ritual Art, Fine typography, printed on Cougar Natural 160M archive-quality paper. Individually hand-numbered.

Published by Anathema Publishing LTD

 

From the publisher:

“As a transpersonal state, berserkergangr has attracted a host of theories that attempt to explain or rationalise it as a drug-induced frenzy, or insanity. Too few studies are open to the possibility of an enhanced state of spiritual intoxication, of ‘god possession.’ Being an ecstatic madness, that dedication to an extreme warrior code is more akin to the mysterious disciplines of the east that demand, privation, ordeal and self-sacrifice. It is the path of the zealot, the hero and the priest combined.”

Óðinn’s identity as the Ecstatic God of the Tethers of Law and Death, is least recognised through his Skin-Turning and Shape-shifting techniques as gifts of the highest craft he imparts to a shamanic warrior elite. Those themes are explored in this volume, alighting upon a wide range of magics and histories identified within the Óðinnic cultus. Medieval source materials yield a wealth of information relating to Totemism; Ritual Guising; the Berserkir and Úlfhéðnar as Óðinn’s True Wolf Warriors; Motifs of Magical Beasts in Battle; the Wælceasega as Carrion Host; the Law and Covenants relating to Wǽr-loga; Outlawry; She-Wulves; The Red Thread of Wyrd, Warding and Binding the Dead, Varðlo(k)kur – the call to spirit; Dragons, the Wyrm, and finally, to the malefic sorcery of the Dog Heads of War, The Zmei, The Roggenwolf and the Bukka, whose presence in the wheat, rye and barley knots of the blessed harvest grains, all wend a path through to the real St George, to Green George.

Enchanted thread, girdles, withies and staves, seiðr and the völur are woven through the time-honoured mysteries shared by Beowulf, Grendel and his brimwylf (‘sea-wolf’) mother. Nordic culture drew inspiration and influence from the magical and martial disciplines of the Sámi, Slavic, north-European and Eurasian peoples. Invoking the divine ecstasy of creation, Shamen priests and warriors, stand ‘outside’ time. Óðinn’s antinomian challenges generated considerable friction within societal ‘law.’ The dehumanisation of the skóggarmaðr (wild men of the forest) outlawed for following his rule, rendered them indistinct from the forest-wolf’s status, and were perceived as equal quarry. Transpersonal experiences shaped their realities, relating to identification through a clan totem, namely the wolf, and later the dragon, wyrm and raven, not merely as wild beasts of battle, but of ancestry, mind, of wit and wisdom.  Couched in ambiguities, the role of the Valkyrjur, the ‘handmaidens of Óðinn is re-evaluated, leading to a new conclusion for their association with (battle) carnage and the ‘Cult of the Dead.’

THE BOOK OF DEVOTIONAL SERVICE TO THE DARK KING OF FLAME: LUCIFER (Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

 

It has come to our attention that only 1 or 2 exemplars ever were offered in the second hand market.

We have received over the past years many requests to have this book reprinted. And now here it is finally once again. We initially hesitated to do this reprint….simply because we don’t know how many people are actually interested in this grimoire.

The “Grimoire of Bhakti Yoga” is a book that serves as a prelude to the follow up grimoire titled “Psalterium Sathanas” by the same author.

In this book one will find guidelines and invocations for the purpose of contemplation and meditation and establishing a Spiritual connection to The Dark King Lucifer.

Provided are sigils to serve as focus points and invocations and mantras to be recited. Additionally is a theoretical essay/prose which is constructed in small sections which serve as a helpful means to set the appropriate mood and context in which the prayers, invocations and hymns should be understood and used in this practise of meditation and devotional service.

The text is titled “The Epistle of Sophia’s Luciferian Incarnation: Creation of Environmental Necessity for Man to acquire Wisdom and Divinity”.

This work is born out of passion, love and devotion to Sophia, Lucifer and Hekate.

The sole purpose of this book is to honour and give devotion to the Spirit.

AZOETIA: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft by Andrew D. Chumbley 3rd edition (Limited Edition Hardcover)

As the incepting text of Xoanon Limited, Andrew D. Chumbley’s visionary book ‘The Azoëtia: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft’ was first published in 1992 and is regarded as the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. The second edition of 2002 sold out within months of its release. Since then, exorbitant prices on the second-hand market have prevented ownership of this essential text. In response to growing interest in this work, and as part of the conservation and dissemination of the magical texts of the Cultus Sabbati, Xoanon Limited is releasing the third edition of ‘The Azoëtia’. The grimoire ‘Azoëtia’ is comprised of three main parts: an exposition of preliminary magico-aesthetic formulae with detailed descriptions of working instruments, the full text of the Sabbatic Rituals of Ingress, Congress, and Egress, and an eleven-chaptered grimoire detailing the arcana and composite practices of the Sacred Alphabet – the twenty-two lettered code of sorcerous principles underlying the practical spectrum of the Arte Magical. The entire work intends the reification of traditional British cunning-craft praxis according to the spiritual vision and artistry of a contemporary initiate.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law!

These words received by Aleister Crowley in 1904 echo down the generations, asking us to question our actions, our true nature and in turn the very context of magickal expression and understanding within which the words themselves and Thelema became framed.

As the figures gather this night, sometime in the late 1950’s, the hustle and bustle of the London streets outside becomes eerily distant. The attendees seem a little on edge, looking from one to the other, noting the detail of robes and masks, of stature and movement. Something is not quite right. Even before the ritual begins it seems that another has joined them, that another walks amongst them unseen. It is the night of the New Moon and the darkness seems to have hidden the arrival of one both familiar and yet separated by decades, outside the restrictive circles of time.

Still they remain focussed as the words are intoned and a small, Tibetan bell, sounded. Before them is their leader. Does the Master also sense that there is something different this evening, that a shade of the future walks amongst them even now, having admired the cut of his three-piece suit when he crossed the street outside? He hesitates for a moment, looking about the room and then continues.

Typhonian Rites of Amenta not only reveals the answer to this and other questions of a Nightside nature but gives details of the methods and mechanics associated with these rites. Whilst some may be familiar with the sigils of Aleister Crowley’s Liber Arcanorvm or Kenneth Grant’s Nightside of Eden, here they will find new cartographies and new ways of exploring the Tunnels of Choronzon-Set.

For as Dr. Plimer writes in the Introduction, “The questions Sean invites us to ask are: who were these brave esotericists, and who amongst us will retrieve and then continue this great work? The answer is given: the ‘Typhonians’, for it is we who bathe in the rites and light of that lunar sphere, utilising the magick of the New Moon and that of the Nightside Tradition.”

Lavishly illustrated throughout by the author, the book includes his exclusive new album Typhonis, with the signature ritual musick tracks, Ilyarun and Aossic.

Sean Woodward is the OTOA-LCN Grand Master for Great Britain, Ireland & Australia and is a gnostic bishop. His works include Keys to the Hoodoo Kingdom, Erzulie of the Deep and The Grimoire of ZAL. He has also designed a number of tarot decks with Voudon Gnostic themes.

MODERN AMULETS FROM ANCIENT SCRIPTURES by Gilles de Laval – Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover with Bonus Extra Supplemental Amulets Leather Bound Limited Hardcover – Import

 

Regular price is $295 but for a limited time you can pick up this deluxe edition for $225. We only have a few of these in stock and we will sell them on a first come first serve basis.

 

One of only 50 copies. Both copies are bound in leather and hand numbered. Book contains 292 pages, supplemental book 147 pages.

Synopsis:

Gilles de Laval’s new book, Modern Amulets from Ancient Scriptures, is offered to the worldwide community of esoteric practitioners as an homage to the old Anna-Riva-style chapbooks that were so popular in the 1970’s through the 1990’s, before fading in popularity as the age of digital distribution began to eclipse neighborhood occult bookstores, curio shops, and botanicos.  Written in the same laconic style and laserbeam focus, Modern Amulets from Ancient Scriptures does one thing and one thing only:  it outlines the formulation of, then presents 174 amulets, newly discovered tucked away in those Hebrew, Greek and Arabic scriptures which are the underpinning of the western religious tradition.

While the texts they derive from are ancient, and the method of assembling them stems from centuries-old tried-and-true occult traditions and techniques we have all inherited, each amulet has never before been published, and the method itself is brand-new.  There is an amulet for almost every use, and, what’s better, each amulet design can be personalized limitlessly as they include tables to create personalized mantras to accompany any amulet’s construction and which can be intoned by the wearer.  It is the author’s deepest desire that in these times of trouble, the reader will find some comfort and joy in rediscovering not only our rich spiritual heritage but a newly minted offering of practical and applied magic in the spirit of the old esoteric bookstore chapbooks, which changed the face of occultism for a generation, took the ideas of magic out of the hands of elite orders and secret societies and made their lofty concepts available to a universal audience.

Gilles has authored five previous books:

 

Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash

The Explicit Name of Lucifer
Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis

One of only 224 limited edition hardcover sets. Book is in new unread condition.

Published by The Society of Esoteric Endeavour

The four books:-

William Dawson Bellhouse (Compiler and Scribe), A Complete System of Magic, hardback book 200pp, some diagrams, sigils etc. Conventional Victorian design decorated endpapers. Cloth is manufactured by a craftsman who has lectured both the Society of Bookbinders and the Society of Designer Bookbinders about Victorian bookcloth manufacture. This material is made with a traditional starch filling which is more pleasing to touch than modern cloths which are treated with plastic. As with any handmade product, the cloth may have minor irregularities. The text is a complete transcription of manuscript of a practitioner active in Liverpool, England in the late 1850s, his working magical book. He was part of a milieu who generally performed the same perilous ritual, often in the same location, to establish their communication with the spirits (including infernal beings) upon whom they would rely to perform their craft. However, the nature of their practices could vary greatly.

APOCALYPTIC WITCHCRAFT by Peter Grey (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

 

 

The spectre of witchcraft is haunting the West, the dead giving up their secrets. This is a ritual unveiling of these mysteries. It is a vision and a revelation of the mytho-poetic structure of the Art.

Apocalyptic Witchcraft is a bold project which does not seek to impose an orthodoxy on what is the heresy of heresies. Instead, it suggests a way forward.

Apocalyptic Witchcraft gives a compelling and profound account of the Sabbat and Wild Hunt as living experiences. These are the core of our ritual practice. Dream, lunar and, critically, menstrual magic are explored as a path to this knowledge. The wolf, the Devil, and the Goddess of witchcraft are then encountered in a landscape that ultimately reveals the witch to her or himself. These are not separate threads, but arise from a deep mythic structure and are woven together into a single unifying vision. Alternating between polemic, poetic and ecstatic prose, an harmonious course is revealed in a sequence of elegant stratagems. The book is threaded together with a cycle of hymns to Inanna, pearls on the tapestry of night. Seemingly disparate aspects are joined into a vision which is neither afraid of blessing nor curse. This is a daring undertaking, born from both urgency and need. It offers a renewed sense of purpose and meaning for a witchcraft that has seen many of its treasured ideas about itself destroyed. An apocalyptic age demands an Apocalyptic Witchcraft, and this is a book which is offered up to revolutionise the body of the craft, a way out of the dark impasse.
