Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2018. Limited to 750 copies only. A FINE PREMIUM CLOTH COPY IN FINE DUST JACKET. Artwork by Benjamin Vierling. The principal concern of this volume is the intersection of magic and poison, which finds its origins in remote antiquity, and now reaching into the occult traditions of present day. Beyond their functions as agents of bodily harm, poisons have also served as gateways of religious ecstasy, occult knowledge, and sensorial aberration, as well as the basis of manifold cures of the body and mind. This magical tradition can be found in the rites of ancient Sumer and Egypt, through European Necromancy, Alchemy, and modern-day folk magic. This revised edition is fully corrected with some notable expansions: new typographic design for the entire book; some expansion of the text in certain chapters, plus one entirely new chapter; new and additional images; a new title page illustration by artist Benjamin A. Vierling, as well as two new ornaments by the same artist. Four page color insert. 192 pages, indexed. Octavo. (Item ID: F3-X-VE2)
