Item Description: The Teitan Press, York Beach, Maine, USA, 2008. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Large Quarto (11 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches, approx. 28.5 x 22cm). lxiv + [158]pp. Quality deep blue cloth binding, with a gilt sigil & titling stamped on the front cover, and gilt title etc. on the spine. Sewn, printed on library-quality paper. English language texts [64pp.] + facsimile of the original Hebrew manuscript [158pp.]. Edition limited to 358 numbered copies - this being one of the launch copies signed on a bookplate on the front pastedown by Stephen Skinner. The book centers on a Hebrew manuscript entitled 'Sepher Maphteah Shelomoh,' that dates from around 1700. The original manuscript was discovered in the library of a London Rabbi, Samuel Marcus Gollancz (1819-1900), by his son, Hermann, not long after his father's death. Hermann Gollancz, himself an eminent Hebrew scholar, was fascinated by the manuscript, and felt that its study might give important insight into the history and origins of the "Solomonic" grimoires or books of magic, that are a mainstay of the Western occult tradition. In 1903 Gollancz published his preliminary thoughts and translations in a booklet entitled 'Clavicula Salomonis, A Hebrew Manuscript,' and in 1914 he published a facsimile of the manuscript, along with a twenty-page English-language Introduction discussing the text and quoting from it, under the title Sepher Maphteah Shelomo in an edition of only 300 copies. Both works are extremely rare, and have never before been reprinted. This new Teitan Press edition includes the full text of both of Gollancz's commentaries, and a facsimile of the original Hebrew manuscript, coupled with a new Foreword by well-known scholar of the occult, Stephen Skinner, in which he explores the history of the grimoire in the light of modern scholarship. The first section comprises the English-language Foreword and Introductions, and is 64 pages: printed on quality uncoated paper for easy readability. The remaining 158 pages (the facsimile of the original Hebrew manuscript) are printed on special coated paper, that gives a photograph-like quality to the reproduction of the manuscript, with its numerous drawings of seals, talismans etc. In keeping with tradition, it has been printed so that the English commentaries, which are of course read left to right, are back-to-back with the Hebrew facsimile, which is read from right to left. Please note the English materials are commentaries - not a full translation. Hint of dust to the boards, still in Fine condition. (no dust jacket issued). Bookseller Inventory # 48335

Item Description: Ixaxaar Occult Literature, Finland, 2013. First English Language Edition. Hardcover. Small Quarto. 226pp. Black faux leather decorated (stamped) in blind, red foil lettering to spine, b&w illustrations, Pentagram patterned endpapers. This edition limited to 1,100 copies (not numbered). From the Publisher: "One of the most intellectually sophisticated and in-depth texts of modern Satanism/ Left Hand Path and its spirituality ever produced. This valuable occult study plunges the student of the Left Hand Path into a comprehensive philosophical system providing a Study on the Being & Essence of Satan, exploring topics such as the Philosophy of God, Philosophical Anthropology, Eschatology, Metaphysics, Cosmology, and various other subjects of Satanism and Mysticism which guide the serious seeker to a complete worldview. With the aim of total unity and of understanding opposites, considering even the most significant arguments of the downward path of the soul's death in an unbiased way, Fosforos seeks to build on the fundamental doctrine of Oneness: the quintessences of both the Right Hand Path and the Left Hand Path are joined into one - as they have always been, in the heart of a true aspirant. Fosforos begins with the principle of absolute unity, Polyharmonia- The Philosophy of Oneness. The second part, Discordamelior- The Philosophy of Perdition discusses the fundamental problem of seeming duality, the breach within the cosmic harmony, manifesting itself as Evil. In the third part, Necrosophia - The Philosophy of Death, the almost collapsed and already rotten state of the world we know is observed as leading towards purifying Death and Rebirth. The fourth part, Pentagrammaton - The Consistency of Man and the Practice of Magic, turns its attention towards the microcosm and man as the demiurge, capable of harnessing his mental prowess for the work of very deep and real magical creation. It also explores how this hermetic and metaphysical worldview can be studied with a rational mindset. The fifth part, Cista Mystica - The Symbology of Satanism, introduces several important Satanic themes and symbols, like Demonology, the problem of universal paradox and suffering, and the prophesied coming of the Antichrist. The last of the book's parts, Legifer & Clavis Magica, gives us a law and scheme to reach out for a higher and more permanent kind of self-realization and occult development, along with the key or Magic formula with which to utilize that development with the aid of Prayers and Spells both in the work of theurgy or the Divine Magic and Goetia or the magic worked with the aid of Elemental or, as they are called, Demonic powers. The translation is based on the revised Finnish edition, including the commentary given in the form of extensive footnotes and forming "the seventh book" of Fosforos. Also included is an appendix giving a brief and clear definition of the Hieroglyphic Key of the Seven Principles, and another concerning the post-mortem states of a human being. The six different parts of Fosforos each approach from a different perspective the core ideas of the text, namely Satan and the Occult science of Magic. Despite its paradoxical and labyrinthine manner of expression, often using totally opposing arguments to understand and live for the great whole, Fosforos is not written to be just another theoretical study of the Left Hand Path, philosophical treatise, or Satanic Manifesto, but rather is a work for devotional and practical living, should the reader choose to aspire on this narrow path of Ascension." A bright copy. Fine in Fine dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 44206
