      Pittsburgh, PA: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1972. Signed by the author on the title page, the remarkably crisp textblock of this exceedingly rare trade paperback 1972 Pitt Poetry Series printing of the poet's first book is brilliantly clean, tight, square, carries absolutely no underlining, highlighting or marginalia and shows only the faintest foxing to the left corner of the pagehead. The covers are very clean, bright and show only the most negligible finish rubbing, an extremely gentle shelving bump to the lower right corner of the front cover and to the upper edge of the front cover, quite superficial opening creases along the lower spine to the both covers, two tiny finish blemishes to the lower spine and the very faintest age-toning to both covers; a small sticker remains on the upper right corner of the front cover.. Signed by Author. 1972 Printing. Trade Paperback. Very Good.

A fine set, as new in the original publisher's cloth covered slipcase. GEOSOPHIA: The Argo of Magic, by Jake Stratton-Kent, comprises the Second Volume of The Encyclopaedia Goetica, concluding the work that was begun in the First Volume, THE TRUE GRIMOIRE, which dealt extensively with the Grimorium Verum. ¶ Jake Stratton-Kent's masterpiece. Tracing the development of magic from the Greeks to the grimoires, it lays bare the chthonic roots of goetic ritual. By exposing the necromantic origins of much of modern magic we are able to reconnect with the source of our ritual tradition. There is a continuity of practice in the West which encompasses the pre-Olympian cults of Dionysus and Cybele, is found in the Greek Magical Papyri and Picatrix and flows into the grimoires. Rather than a muddle of superstition, the grimoire tradition is revealed as the living descendant of the ancient practices of the Goes. This is a work which redefines our understanding of the Western tradition, one which does not begin with Cabbala or Solomon, but rather descends into the Underworld and brings forth new life. JSK illuminates scarce and overlooked texts with an incisive commentary, from volcanic conjurations to over 70 pages dealing with Picatrix. Following the voyage of the Argonauts, Geosophia offers biographies of the heroes and gods, and discovers the hidden magical meanings and significance of their actions and adventures. Yet this is not a history lesson, JSK dares to imagine a global synthesis of magic where Western goetic magic, reconnected to its chthonic origins can dovetail with the African Traditional Religions. Like The True Grimoire, this further work in the Encyclopaedia Goetica series is both a scholarly and eminently practical work. Geosophia equips the modern grimoire magician with an arsenal of techniques and approaches that will transform their personal art. The mythic structure of Geosophia anchors the practice of the modern necromancer in an indigenous yet eclectic history which transfuses the Western Magical Tradition with the same vitality that we find in the African diaspora religions. Jake Stratton-Kent has been a goetic magician since 1972, making forty years of continuous goetic practice. His practical work integrates the magical papyri, italo-french grimoires in particular the Grimorium Verum and African traditional religions with a focus on Quimbanda and magia negra. His interest in magic spans the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and modern as well as stretching from the West to the Middle East and crucially, the New World. His scholarly approach is backed with a personal relationship with the spirits, which is rare to find in the modern world. An essential text, and certainly one of the most important and sought after books on grimoires & magick that has been written & published in the last 10 years.
