Hardcover. Small Quarto. xxxiv [introduction] + 54pp. [transcription] + 98pp [reproduction of MS]. Bound in high quality black cloth, with a gilt design after Hockley stamped on the front cover, blind rules; gilt-lettered spine. Black moire "coffin silk" endpapers. Sewn. B/w & color plates. Edition limited to 880 numbered copies. The first ever facsimile publication of this manuscript which was compiled by Frederick Hockley during the 1830s. The manuscript comprises three distinct but connected texts, "Dr Rudd's Nine Hierarchies of Angels" (a work in part at least derived from a seventeenth century manuscript "Janua Magica Reserata"), the English translations of John Dee's angelic keys, and the invocations of the angels relating to the 'table of the earth.' The book comprises a comprehensive Introduction by Alan Thorogood, followed by a typeset transcription of the text of the manuscript, with explanatory footnotes, etc., and a facsimile of the original Hockley manuscript with color preliminary pages. As is now well known, Frederick Hockley (1808-1885) was an occultist and freemason whose interests included scrying, ritual magic, alchemy and spiritualism. In later life was associated with the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia. Hockley's peers considered him to be one of the great occult scholars of his time in fact he was held in such high regard by one of the founders of the Golden Dawn, W. Wynn Westcott, that he posthumously claimed Hockley as one of the Order's most outstanding Adepts.
