About this Item

A Deluxe edition in three-quarters crimson goat, with a felt-lined slipcase, strictly limited to 171 copies. This copy is numbered 138. AS NEW.By desire was the Nail brought to earth,A ferrous fruit pluckedfrom the boughs of the heavenly tree,Thus did the mysteries of metal and fire fall unto man.The Psalter of Cain consists of a series of devotional works to Cain, holy Ancestor of sorcerors. Its points of magical convergence are dedicated specifically to the Ancestral Manes of the Sabbatic Current, the shade-mothers and fathers of the Companie of the Wise.Historically, the figure of Biblical Cain is known from the context of Italian witchcraft and Romany magic, as well as esoteric orders of Freemasonry and the Society of the Horseman's Word. However, it is from the British witchcraft-lineages of the Cultus Sabbati that Cain has come to modern occult prominence as the especial patron of the Witch's Art, the Embodiment of Exile and Opposition explicit within the Elder Craft. In its rarefied embodiment of Crooked Path Sorcery -- the ever-deviating path of Bane and Blessing -- the power of Cain arises from the mythic forms of Transgressor-against-God, First Murderer, Wandering Exile, and First Tamer of the Horse. These Cainite arcana received their highest ritual and literary expression in Andrew D. Chumbley's Draconian Grimoire, or Dragon-Book of Essex [privately published, 1997-98, forthcoming from Xoanon Publishing Limited.]The Psalter of Cain is the first public work of joint authorship of the magical order Cultus Sabbati, its pages drawn from the collective work of its present initiatic body. As a work of devotional rite, charm, and incantation, the book manifests the transcendent Sabbatic vision of Cainite Gnosis: the radiance which illumines the Nocturnal Eden, the light of vision-anointed eyes. The book features new contributions from the following authors:Andrew D. ChumbleyDaniel A. SchulkeRobert FitzgeraldSoror I.S.Frater A.B.A.Soror S.I.Soror T.A.Frater A.A.Frater A.Z.Frater R.I.In addition, the Psalter features works from the outer sodality of the Cultus -- the solitary companions of The Companie Of The Serpent-Cross. Its progression of rite and charm is incepted by a Proem by Andrew D. Chumbley, and a Consummatum by Daniel A. Schulke. The book is produced to the highest Xoanon standard, with a Design wholly apposite the Cainite Arcanum. 112 pages, octavo format, printed letterpress, and illustrated, and illustrated by Fraters A.A. and A.H.I.The book is issued in two editions:A Standard hardcover edition in crimson linen, with gilt blocking, and limited to 701 copies.A Deluxe edition in three-quarters crimson goat, with a felt-lined slipcase, strictly limited to 171 copies.
