A Book of Automatic Drawing. (Out of Print)
by Spare, Austin Osman
Publisher: Teitan Press, Inc.
Book ID: A8256, A8256
London / York Beach Maine: Catalpa Press / Teitan Press, 1973/ 2011. First Edition - New Issue Hardcover. Folio. (17" x 12" - 43.2cm x 30.5cm) (40pp.) Quarter black cloth with black paper-covered boards and title and design by Spare gilt stamped on front board. Printed on Abbey Mills white laid paper. Edition limited to 350 hand-numbered copies. Spare finished the work in 1925, but his attempts to publish it himself failed, and it remained unpublished until it was printed by the Catalpa Press (London) in 1973. The book is a magnificently-crafted reproduction of Spare's original manuscript sketchbook and comprises a decorative title, contents, and end pages, plus twelve full-page plates and an Introduction by Ian Law. The sheets of this Catalpa Press edition were beautifully produced by an art-printer in two issues: a "trade edition" printed on white laid paper and an "edition deluxe" on hand-made paper. A number of unbound sets of sheets from these original 1973 printings were recently rediscovered, and have been bound up and reissued by the Teitan Press. This copy is one of the trade edition, of which only 350 numbered copies of this new release have been issued. Included with each copy is a 12 page booklet by Keith Richmond, recounting the complicated history of the book. The book is a superb production. As might be expected with sheets that are nearly 40 years old, there is the occasional minor blemish, but over all the book is NEW in Fine condition.

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
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...

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.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"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."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
