Description

London: Fulgur Limited, 2014. Limited Edition. Original material was inspired by the affair between Jack Parsons and his artist lover, and magickal confidante, Marjorie Cameron. For Parsons, Cameron was a muse, a fellow student of Thelema and magick, and a primal force of nature – a woman he proclaimed as his ‘elemental’ in a letter to Aleister Crowley. Without doubt, Marjorie Cameron fascinated, troubled and inspired Parsons. This volume not only features the original verse written by Parsons to document his feelings toward his often absent lover, but, for the first time, the images from the hand of Cameron which illustrated and echoed the most intimate of themes. After Parsons’ death in June 1952, due to misadventure, Cameron continues the notebook in which this work was recorded. Though bereaved from the loss, Cameron offers a hand-written diary of the magical working which took place at Lamb Canyon, California in the period after the loss of Parsons. In the stark desert, her words become a raw lament as she attempted to gain contact with her Holy Guardian Angel. Throughout the Working, the memory of Jack Parsons is never far from her mind.

Partial contents: The poems, drawings and diary entries published together for the first time; A facsimile of the original 1950s notebook with text by Jack Parsons and illustrations in watercolor by Marjorie Cameron; The texts have also been corrected and typeset alongside a second suite of pen and ink drawings that Cameron produced for the work after 1952: Contextual commentaries from William Breeze, George Pendle and Margaret Haines. A Fine Volume bound in premium custom blocked cloth, with special matching end papers, and printed throughout on an exquisite Italian paper. 176 pages. Colored illustrations and drawings. 4to.

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Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...

"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."

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...
