Qutub, or The Point. Second Edition. STANDARD EDITION (Used)
by Chumbley, Andrew D.
Publisher: Xoanon Publishing Ltd
Book ID: XOAN20083, XOAN20083
Xoanon, Sole Publisher of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition, announces publication of the Second Edition of Qutub or, The Point, by Andrew D. Chumbley, late Magister of the Cultus Sabbati. Marking the 13th Anniversary of its original release, the Second Edition has been newly typeset and bound by Xoanon. Long out of print, Xoanon is proud to re-release this classic and long sought-after volume. Release date is set for mid-Winter, 2008.
Qutub defines and illustrates the Design of Crooked Path Sorcery through a series of 72 poetic verses, each representing a specific arcanum of Draconian Gnosis. Arising from diverse initiatic currents and spiritual streams, this Wisdom encompasses the ancient Persian sorceries of the Maskarae and Yatukan; the pure mysticism and beauty of the Sufi Way; the Yezidis, collected Kurdish tribes comprising the "People of the Book", and the modern-day exemplar of the Witches' Sabbatic Cultus. Together, these sources inform and inspire the verses of Qutub, Point and Axis of the World, weaving a rich tapestry to which is appended a scholarly commentary. This Illumination ultimately comprises the body of the Dragon of Eld, the Ancient Serpent of Light whose totality manifests within the microcosmic earth as the Great Opposer, whose Rite is included in the book.
The book is to be released in two editions. The standard edition is limited to 700 copies, and is hardbound in black cloth with blue endpapers. The deluxe edition, limited to 72 copies, is hardbound in midnight blue goat skin with marbled endpapers and slipcased. We offer the standard edition for sale only, and currently have no copies of the deluxe edition available. You can be notified of the deluxe edition should any become available.
Limit of one copy per customer.

Tartaros: On the Orphic and Pythagorean Underworld, and the Pythagorean Pentagram (STANDARD)
Alm, Johan August
Three Hands Press
The magical doctrines of the ancient Orphics and Pythagoreans are poorly understood by modern scholars, in part because they were secretive in their own time. Well-known for speaking in riddles and complex ciphers, its adepts were bound by strict taboo and silence, the breaking of which was punishable by death. The enigma of the cult’s teachings was further shrouded by centuries of suppression, and, in some cases, appropriation or misrepresentation, by the growing forces of Christianity. What ...More
Austin Osman Spare: The Occult Life of London's Legendary Artist
North Atlantic Books
Austin Osman Spare is the definitive biography of the controversial occultist and artist, an enfant terrible of the Edwardian art world whose work was both hailed as genius and decried as immoral decadence. As George Bernard Shaw reportedly said, "Spare's medicine is too strong for the average man."
Trained as a draughtsman, Spare enjoyed early acclaim when, at the age of seventeen, his work was shown at the Royal Academy in London. But his star soon declined; Spare went underground, falli...

Idolatry Restor'd: Witchcraft and the Imaging of the Divine
Schulke, Daniel A
Three Hands Press
The translation of magical power to image is a matter well understood in so-called 'primitive' sorcery, in which occurs a mutual embodiment of re-presentation and the Represented. The Fetish, for example, apprehends a reciprocal process between Object and Creator that often begins long before chisels and adzes are set to wood, participating in its own reification. Many of these eldritch forms of image-making were concerned with accessing power, and it was only later, in the context of religious ...More
