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.
