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.

Wisht Waters: Aqueous Magica and the Cult of Holy Wells (Occult Monograph No. 5)
Three Hands Press
Curse tablets, defixiones, were formed from sheets of lead, inscribed with the ill intent of the curse, and the name of the victim. The tablet would often be rolled, or folded, before being stuck through with a nail; a magical act of defigo; 'pinning down' or 'fixing' one’s will and intent upon the target of one’s work. Such an act is not isolated to malefic working, and is cognate with the 'creative act' and fertility; giving life unto the magician's will. In curse magic howev...

36 Faces: The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans
Three Hands Press
There is a thread that runs through over four millennia of astrological and magical history, a cord that binds ancient Egypt with the Hellenistic world, the Arabian empire, India, the European Renaissance and even touches the present. That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 'Faces of Heaven' are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic materia...More

Fiona Macleod was clearly a gentlelady of breeding and intellect. She was almost 'one of us' - but not quite. It was this slight difference that allowed her to deal with dark and frightening characters and subjects in a way that gave them the glamour of the Celtic Otherworld in an intriguing and believable manner. She opened up a whole new world of language, ancient songs, poems and proverbs that had never before been presented to the English-speaking peoples south of the Scottish Highlands. She...More
