AZOETIA: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft; Being a full and accurate transcription, compiled and amended by the author from the original manuscript of 'The Book of Magical Quintessence.'
Xoanon, 2015. Enhanced Third Edition. Limited to 900 copies. A FINE PREMIUM CLOTH VOLUME in dust jacket with custom end papers. A welcome re-issue of the classic work by Chumbley. First published in 1992, it has come to be regarded as the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. 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. Limited to 900 copies only. With a New Foreword by Daniel Schulke and Soror I.S., plus a special new image has been added to the original book, and three original Chumbley illustrations not published originally. The text has been completely re-set. [x], 366 pages. Tall octavo. (Item ID: X-AZ)
