OF THE ARTE GOETIA.
York Beach: Teitan Press, 2015. DeLuxe edition of 72 copies of which this is Focalor 41. A FINE CLOTH COPY IN SLIPCASE, sewn and archival, with gilt impressed front panel, blind rules, and custom black end papers. SIGNED by Campbell on title page, and including a hand drawn seal of one of the Goetic spirits, Focalor, number 41. With additional diagrams and magickal seals. Campbell examines the evolution of the text known as Goetia, from the proto-Goetia of Wier's "Pseudomonarchia Daemonum", through the first English translation in Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft", and finally to the English language manuscripts from which most modern editions are drawn. Campbell reproduces the significant passages of each of these sources side-by-side, highlighting their differences, and seeks to correct a number of errors, lacunae or redactions that the comparisons reveal. 288 pages. Tall octavo. (Item ID: 15143)
