Description

Colby & Rich 1867 [but circa 1893], Boston, 1867. "A STELLAR KEY TO THE SUMMER LAND. Part I. Illustrated with Diagrams and Engravings of Celestial Scenery." publ's black cloth. 190+8pp, b & w plates, including frontispiece, six pages of Colby ads at back, no other parts published Davis' books are frequently found in bad condition and all of them have become scarce in the last 10 years. Occultists seem to have mostly forgotten him but he's been "discovered" in a big way by academia. Thirty years ago his books were mostly unsalable, I passed up hundreds of copies before a few scholars and librarians started to ask me about him. Now I can't find them anywhere. Librarians and dealers don't seem to understand that there were a number of late 19th century reprints by houses like Colby's where they never took the original copyright date off the colophon so they look like originals especially to those who can't tell late 19th century bindings to those of the civil war era. "Acres of Books" (of Long Beach), stamp to front paste-down, a very good to fine copy "fifth revised edition" [but in fact a reprint of the first edition].

Churton, Tobias
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways. Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Hamilton-Giles, Peter
Three Hands Press

As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."
