Description

NP [ Virginia Beach, VA ]: Dark Harvest Occult Publishers, 2012. First Edition Hardcover. 8vo. 160pp. Red cloth with black titling to spine and serpent design to upper board, charcoal textured endpapers. B&w frontis and illustrations by Lucas Pandofelli. The "Crown of Flames edition," limited to 313 hand numbered copies. From the author of "Liber Obsidian Obscura", this is Dray's third release. From the publisher: "The first sorcerers collected together the necessary ingredients; ones that they could feel resonated with their purpose and would capture and hold their magical intent. They combined them together with forbidden words of power that resonated with the elements of the world around them. They stole into the night and built a fire in the most desolate of regions; homes of demons of the earth and air, and they held the effigy of their enemy aloft, weaving a powerful curse and finally throwing the charged representation into the bonfire, knowing the work was complete. The Infernal Path is the embodiment of a living opposition to how traditional approaches deal with the spiritual or unseen realm. The sorcerer who embraces the infernal approach views the non-corporeal entity in a way more akin to the sorcerers of ancient times and seeks to exploit their knowledge of the invisible realms in a way that is beneficial to all parties involved, but that ultimately emphasizes their own accumulation of power and self-deification. The traditional shaman/priest seeks union with the deity and the "spiritual" elevation of themselves and their people through a subservient relationship with the spirit realm. The infernal approach to these traditions reverses this odious human impulse and thus reverses the energetic currents inherent within these systems." A lovely, pristine copy in Fine condition. (no dust jacket as issued).

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
