Binding: Hardcover

Book ID: A7966, A7966


Hellfire Club undated (2006). 204pp of which 98pp have text or illustrations, the blank pages of the original manuscript being reproduced. The content produced here seems to be a color photocopy of the edition published by the Society for Esoteric Endeavor with none of the clarity of image of that edition. The images are in the original 6"x7.75" scale presented against a white background. Oddly there is no numbering in this copy despite the description of the book otherwise entirely matching that from the publisher. Lower corners lightly bumped, otherwise Fine.

Statement of publisher regarding edition: "Colour reproduction of nineteenth century Grimoire or Book of Spells of Pope Honorius, once in the personal collection of Frederick George Irwin - a prominent fringe freemason and member of the 'Society of Eight' precursor to the Societas Rosicruciana In Anglia and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Irwin was an associate of Hockley who appears to have had this English language translation prepared from French originals of Honorius and the 'Collection of the Secrets of the Magic Art' of one Guidon, which draws heavily upon the Grimorium Verum and the 'Pacts'.

Each copy 11inches by 8inches with original pages reproduced as inset plates, hand sewn in a full English Library binding, Victorian style cloth jointed endpapers, binders own distinctive green red and gold marbled papers matching the full leather Goetias produced by the Hell Fire Club. Copies bear a reproduction of the original owners bookplate on the front board.

Bound in quarter leather, deep red archival clansman goatskin from Hewitts of Edinburgh, dark forest green cloth sides, matching red and green headbands, red and green marker ribbons, spine blind tooled with nineteenth century period handtools.
