        GEOSOPHIA. The Argo of Magic. Encyclopedia Goetia Volume II: From the Greeks to the Grimoires. Books I, II, III and IV [and] Encyclopedia Goetia Volume III: Books V, VI, VII & VIII. Two Volumes Complete, THE DELUXE EDITION OF 54 HAND-NUMBERED COPIES, bound in gilt-decorated vellum and marbled boards, slipcased

      UK: Scarlet Imprint , MMX [2010].. First Edition, First Printing. Vellum. Fine in Slipcase. Two volumes. One of 54 hand-numbered copies comprising the Deluxe edition. Octavo, original gilt-decorated quarter vellum over marbled paper boards, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers, silk bookmarkers. 312 + 326 pp, eight colour plates and illustrations, maps and tables, Indexes at rear. 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.

      Munich, Germany: Rogner & Bernhard, 1972. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Munich, Germany: Rogner & Bernhard, 1972. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 90 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 2000 copies. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely beautiful production by Pierre Molinier and Rogner & Bernhard: Regular-sized volume format. Black cloth boards with black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and photographic tableaux by Pierre Molinier. Essay by Peter Gorsen. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Munich, Germany to absolutely the highest standards. In publisher&#39;s original paper wrappers. In glassine DJ, as issued. Presents some of the most hauntingly beautiful auto-erotic photographs ever taken by an artist/photographer who was truly way ahead of his time. The challenge Molinier poses is fundamental: Is he an artist or not? That is to say, his fetishism can be easily dismissed and its transcendent beauty denied. His is the work of someone who was, on the outside, a conventionally handsome and refined French gentleman. His unsettling work, which he produced for his own private pleasure, belies this mask and rejects it. Because he also created remarkable etchings and paintings, Pierre Molinier did not think of himself primarily as a photographer but as an artist who fully realized his vision through photography. He shot carefully staged photographic tableaux that utilized mannequins and other props. The latter remind us of his obsession with sex as pure fantasy, as something which begins and ends as a fantasy that can never be achieved in reality. In the process, he created some of the most disturbingly beautiful photographs of the 20th century. Molinier proves that the erotic (as opposed to the pornographic) is ultimately about beauty (rather than about sex) , an aesthetic (rather than a sexual) experience. Lucas Samaras, Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Ellen von Unwerth, among many others, would not be possible without Molinier&#39;s pioneering example. A masterpiece, this is a "must-have" title for Pierre Molinier and erotic art photography collectors. <b><i> This is an Import title and is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online, is still in the publisher&#39;s original paper wrappers, and is especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare copy thus. </b></i> 50 plates. Selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century.

        Chapultepec: Historia y presencia

      Smurfit Carton y Papel de Mexico. Hardcover. 9687193042 Dust jacket condition: Good. Wear and tear to jacket. Massive book. Due to weight, no foreign orders or domestic priority shipments accepted without prior arrangement as to shipping costs, which will exceed our usual rates. Spanish/English text. From the Foreword: This year Smurfit. Carton y Papel de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. presents Chapultepec, the sixteenth book of its CPM collection (Culture and Past of Mexico). This program of cultural promotion consists in the publication of unique, non-commercial books, profusely illustrated, which present different aspects of Mexico&#39;s rich historical and artistical heritage. Through this program we try to contribute to the promotion of our country&#39;s cultural values. Within the CPM program, which started in 1972 by presenting different aspects of the country&#39;s cultural wealth, we have published sixteen titles which cover from the Pre-hispanic era up to our days. This book in particular distinguishes itself from previous editions, because instead of dealing with *an event, an era or a person, it refers to a very important site, loved by everyone. Chapultepec, forest and castle, is a site which has lived through man&#39;s history in Mexico. Its name in nahuatl means "Grasshopper Hill" (Chapul--the abbreviation of chapulin [grasshopper]-- and tepetl --locative which refers to hill). It does not cease to intrigue us why our ancestors chose the name of the insect which visits us every year at the end of the rainy season to designate this sacred place. The name also extended to designate the exuberant forest with multiple water springs, that for centuries supplied water to Mexico Tenochtitlan. From the top of the hill there is an extraordinary view of the City and the Valley of Mexico, a sight which not only surpasses the immense trees, but also the numerous skyscrapers which progress has brought along. This rocky promontory evokes our history from the time previous to the arrival of the Spanish conquerors, continuing with the viceroys&#39; recreational grounds; the first castle in America; the Heroic Military Academy; Maximilian&#39;s short-lived empire; Porfirio Diaz&#39; Republic, followed by the revolutionary governments, until it reached its current status as National Museum of History. President Lazaro Cardenas gave it to the people in 1939, to install there the National Museum of History. However, neither Cardenas nor the presidents who have succeeded him, abandoned Chapultepec, because when they moved the presidential residence to Los Pinos --the old Tacubaya ranch of "La Hormiga" which bordered the aztec&#39;s magic forest-- physically and ecologically, its gardens today form part of Chapultepec. However, Chapultepec&#39;s role goes beyond the historical site. Today it is a recreational site for the thousands of persons of all ages who visit it daily. It also has seven very important museums which play an eminently educational function. Aside from having the most important zoo in Mexico, Chapultepec offers the visitor a large park with mechanical games, two lakes for rowing, restaurants, fountains, spectacular monuments and, above all, many, many trees, flowers and lawns. The ancient forest --with less foliage today than it had some 40 or 50 years ago, but still very beautiful-- is part of a huge complex of gardens and trees; new sections, which previously had been barren hills with some old, crooked pepper-trees, have been added to the park. Nowadays, a walk through Chapultepec bears no resemblance with those days when carriages and "charros" rode their fine horses and showed off their best attires. Today, we don&#39;t see the luxurious automobiles which every Sunday drove slowly through its avenues. Chapultepec now belongs to everyone, and people enjoy it as their own. Happiness abounds; there are picnics, children&#39;s parties and races, aside from an avalanche of visitors, young and old, local and foreign, who continuously go up the ramp to the Castle, to enjoy and admire the splendid view from its terraces. The subject has enraptured us and we have tried to present it with the respect it deserves. We hope to transmit to our readers this same enthusiasm for Chapultepec. 211 pages. Your order will be on its way by the next business day! . Very Good. 1988.
