The Hekatæon is in essence a Hymnal to Hekate: an ecstatic work dedicated to the Maiden-Serpent-Wolf, and manifested by her divine grace.

CROSSED KEYS Being a Chimeric Binding of Both The Black Dragon and the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III (Deluxe Leather Bound with Leather Bag Slipcase)

Offered for sale is an extremely rare and sought after copy of the Sable et d’Or fine bound edition. Only 55 copies of this edition were made. This book was the winner of Balkan’s Book of The Year award for its sheer beauty, and has been widely regarded as the most impressive of Scarlet Imprint’s venerable Fine Edition releases.

Crossed keys is a chimeric binding of both The Black Dragon and the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III in a fresh translation by grimoire magician MC. They are complementary grimoires, spanning the very earliest example of the genre to the late bibliotheque bleue period. Together they comprise a wealth of spells, spirits, lore, talismans and psalm magic, with their head in the highest heavens and their feet in the deepest hells. This is the first time they have been bound into one volume.

 

VIA TORTUOSA: An Exposition on Crooked Path Sorcery by Daniel Schulke (SPECIAL Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover in Custom Slipcase) Import

 

Special deluxe leather bound edition of only 19 copies this being number 16, with marbled endpapers, silk sewn in ribbon marker housed in custom slipcase.

Book is in new unread condition.

‘Crooked Path Sorcery’ is a term originating within the Cultus Sabbati, particularly within the ritual corpus of the Draconist, used to describe the antinomian and oppositional nature of its quintessence. This sorcerous ethos is extrapolated in such Cultus works as Qutub, The Dragon-Book of Essex, and Lux Haeresis, but its roots in fact are older, animating many historical strands of sorcery. Particularly relevant to witchcraft ritual and the perception-distorting powers of the Witches’ Sabbat, the book places especial emphasis on the ‘crooked’ figure of the witch and her Art, examining historical instances and their dispersion into the modern occult workings of the Sabbatic Current. Through the devices of magical analysis, exhortation and homily, the essence of the Crooked Path and its associated byways are directly explored, illuminating the mystical convolutions of the Arcanum.

Also new in this volume is an Author’s Preface, as well as Robert Fitzgerald’s rare 1996 interview with Chumbley in Esoterra. The 1999 article ‘Gnosis For the Flesh Eternal’ appears here for the first time, being a much-expanded version of ‘Wisdom For the New Flesh’ which first appeared in Starfire. For this second volume, we have also included nine Azoëtia-era illustrations which have never before seen print.

Published by Xoanon

Let not the Eye of the Seer be divided from the Body Entire. Even in stasis so-call’d, image-revelation is kinesthetic, for the motions of the Beholding Eye are driven by the contours of signacula comprising the image in totality, and which first arose from the dancing Hand of the Divine Artist. Thus, in Beholding, the flesh of all Image is venerated by phantom-touch; caressed, as it were, by the Eye, in adoration …thus the Beloved becomes the Witching Apple.

Deluxe SPECIAL limited edition of only 100 copies bound in full morocco with custom slipcase. Book is in as new unread condition

Edited by Daniel A. Schulke and with an Introduction by Graham King,

The Occult Reliquary presents a selection of images from the Richel-Eldermans Collection, an occult archive of some 2,000 images and artifacts housed in the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle, Cornwall. Situated at the crossroads of erotic magic, ceremonial angelic conjuration, and witchcraft, the images comprise, in part, a pictorial cipher of the rituals of Ars Amatoria, a European magical order using sex magic, and the lesser-known M.:.M.:. , based in the Hague and Leiden. Also referenced among the collection are materials relating to A.:.A.:. of Aleister Crowley. The transfixing procession of images, charms, magical seals, and ritual objects in the Collection is the work of multiple artists, and displays a high degree of magical insight and creativity. It will be of interest to students of witchcraft, Freemasonry, the Goetia, sex magic, and early twentieth century occultism. The Reliquary presents for the first time a selection of these magical images, many reproduced at full scale, and bound with the highest quality materials. Printed in large-format on archival paper.
