Description

Reprinted From the Edition of 1766, and Edited byÉ London: Printed for the Proprietor, J. Souter 1818, contemporary gilt ruled tan calf, 180+31pp, front board off, spine worn, very scarce. Bound with THE POLITICAL MISCHIEFS OF POPERYÉ by "A Person of Quality", 1818, and APPENDIX TO THE PRESENT EDITIONÉ by J. Toland, and: A CATALOGUE OF THE MOST EMINENTLY VENERABLE RELICS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, all with their own title page, the last separately paginated. This anti-Catholic collection is a real wonder to read. The editor claims that he "is a professed friend of all religious sects, and of the whole human race, whether Pagans, Jews, Christians, or MohometansÉ" He spares his vitriol for the excesses of Catholicism, and is clearly a follower of the "original church" of Rome. The 'Catalogue of Relics' is a partial catalogue of what the church sold off in 1753 by order of the Pope. They include the Ark of the Covenant; St. Joseph's axe; several drops of Christ's blood; the table at which the last supper was held; and some of the money that was paid to Judas, (!). The first part of this collection includes many translations from the Koran

- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

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...

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
