Description

By the Collar of the Jackal and the bone that gnaws, embrace your bravery. For the Mother has smelled you and she is coming. Stand at the ready, for the Jackal-headed gods runs ahead of Her and he brings the bone, the little secret bone, in his jaws and the time of testing is at hand. Place your fear in my waters; I will drink it as wine and be drunk. Take the bone you are offered and close your eyes... -- Qani nyx-ipamai, Genius of Qoph

Aleister Crowley's obscure Liber 231 remains one of the most enigmatic received magical texts, and one whose genesis directly concerns the workings of astral magic and trance-mediumship. A Gathering of Masks is the summation of direct magical workings with the Genii of the Domes, the spirits governing the revealed mystery of Liber 231, and serving as the wards of the Major Arcana of the Taror. Fulfilled by the author over a period of a decade, the twenty-two evocations of the Genii of the Domes reveal a patterning of power and gnosis heretofore little-explored in the practice of the Art Magical.

The book commences with the author's Introduction, entitled "By Seal and Sphere: A Treatise on Astral Magic". The heart of the work is comprised of twenty-two oracles, each of which is accompanied by a commentary and a unique Queen Scale sigil derived from the Work. The book also includes several illustrations by author-artist Barry William Hale of Fulgur Limited. Of interest to scholars of Thelema and practitioners of ceremonial magic, Gathering stands as an outré magical record of the Divinatory Art.

Robert Fitzgerald is a long-time practitioner of the angelic evocation of John Dee and Edward Kelley, and is an initiate of Cultus Sabbati, a magical order of traditional witchcraft in Britain and North America. His written contributions have appeared in the British journal of folklore The Cauldron. A Gathering of Masks is his first book with Three Hands Press.

A Gathering of Masks is 128 pages, octavo format, with three full-page illustrations and 22 magical diagrams. It is published by Three Hands Press in two editions:

  • Standard. Hardcover cloth with letterpress dust jacket, limited to four hundred sixty-two copies.

  • Deluxe. Full hand-grained goat with marbled papers and slipcase, limited to forty-four copies.

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...

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...
