        The Draconian Grimoire. Grimorium Synomosia Dracotaos. An Enchiridion of the Crooked Path, Being a Grammar of Quintessential Sorcery, Containing the Sacred Rites and Formulae Undertaken in the Mysteries of the Great Dragon.

      (Privately Printed) ND (ca 1997), (Chelmsford, UK) - Softcovers. 3 Huge Volumes (11.5 x 8.75 inches). Sequentially paginated - on rectos only: Vol. I: 1 - 222; Vol. II: 223 - 461.; Vol. III: 462 - 884. Quarto sheets printed on one side only, apparently on a computer printer. The sheets of each volume secured by the original black plastic comb-binding, with transparent plastic coversheet. Occasional illustrations and diagrams. Each of the three volumes now also housed in its own magnificent custom-made solander box, black cloth spine with leather title-label, over marble-papered boards, lined in red velvet. The true first "Inner Edition" (private edition) of "The Draconian Grimoire" - said by many to be the most important magical text of the late twentieth century. The "Inner Edition" was limited to only 10 numbered copies, for members of the inner circle of the Cultus Sabbatai. This copy is number 2, and is not only signed by Chumbley in a semi-sigilised form of his maical name (Alogos Dhu'l-qarnen Khidir), but by all four of the recipients of the acknowledgements - the inner-circle of the group at the time. The "Inner Edition" has a short additional chapter, consisting of three illustrations and their headings, that was omitted from the "Outer Edition" - "The Dragon Book of Essex" - which was published some 18 years later. Ben Fernee has described it in more detail thus: this "original version, . includes some material that was not included in the public edition of the third Consummation of the Rite of the Draconian Oracle: an enunciation preceeding the Formulae of the Stellar Transvocation; a significant footnote concerning the Backwards Prayer of the Intercessor; an axiom preceeding the "Opening the Mouth of Enchantment" and some small symbols in that section: two different systems of attributions of components of the Dragon-Books system to the cardinal and inter-cardinal points: Encheirogramma, a brief chapter being three exquisitely detailed illustrations by Soror Pasht Akhti of Andrew's hands in magical gestures. There is also some variant wording in the Telluric Spells of the Arcana of Hu, possibly recording an alternate earlier name for one of the magical tools. Three of the sigils in the Rite of Bha - The Rite of the Dragon's Horns are inverted in the reprint, where another is somewhat variant and another lacks the direcion for orientation. This is edition gives both, very different, methods of working ritually with the Dragon's Horns text, both the earlier version found in preceeding typescripts, and also the later version which appears alone in the outer edition recently published. This section also has slightly variant wording. There is also variation in some of the symbols that accompany the chapter headings." From the collection of Soror Pasht Akhti and Frater Anshar, leading members of the original Cultus Sabbati with Andrew Chumbley. They were also founder members of "the Column," described by Ben Fernee as "the inner group which developed and worked the system of rituals that formed the Dragon Book of Essex." Their remarkable collection was dispersed by Ben in 2015. "The Draconian Grimoire" is sold with a Certificate of Provenance signed by Ben, and the superb, colour-illustrated catalogue of the collection that accompanied the item - marked with a stamp on the listing, to indicate that the catalogue accompanied this specific item. As noted above, each of the volumes is resplendent in an individual, matching, custom-made solander box. The volumes have some light thumbing to the edges - they have obviously been used - but are otherwise Fine. Catalogue and solander cases in Fine condition. Very heavy. Additional shipping will be required. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Zahlreiche Abbildungen, 491 Bl. 33,5 x 39,5, heller Schweinslederband Gutes Exemplar. Band 12 der Reihe "Codices selecti". Der Wiener Dioskurides (auch Anicia-Juliana-Kodex) ist eine der wertvollsten illuminierten Handschriften der Spätantike. Das Pflanzenbuch entstand im 6. Jh. in Konstantinopel. Die spätantike Sammelhandschrift in griechischer Sprache enthält vor allem Texte des Arztes Pedanios Dioskurides und befindet sich seit dem 16. Jahrhundert in Wien. Der Text ist mit zahlreichen Pflanzenbildern, figürlichen Malereien und zoologischen Illustrationen versehen. Angefertigt wurde die Handschrift um das Jahr 512 für Anicia Juliana, eine vornehme Römerin von kaiserlicher Abstammung. Heute ist sie ein wertvolles Quellenwerk für antike Naturwissenschaften und frühbyzantinische Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte. Der Codex hatte eine jahrhundertelange Nachwirkung, war Vorbild zahlreicher Pflanzen- und Kräuterbücher des Mittelalters und selbst der beginnenden Neuzeit.Seit 1997 zählt er zum UNESCO-Weltdokumentenerbe. Aufbewahrungsort ist die Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, wo er die Signatur Codex medicus Graecus 1 hat.

        Samuel Beckett / Beckett Time - "What are you waiting for ....?" - Jumbo Poster for an international Festival, celebrating Samuel Beckett - [Unique because it is signed by the photographer, John Minihan !].

      1997. Glasgow / Aberdeen, c. 1997. Original Quality Jumbo Poster using John Minihan's Photograph of Samuel Beckett, professionally mounted and framed. 106 cm x 157 cm. From the private library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. This photography-poster is a real stunner and can make an impact on any wall with lifesize Samuel Beckett in the room. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives.nnThe work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell.nIn between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.nOver the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer".nnMinihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality;nn 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.'nnMinihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,nn 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'.nnAmong his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996.nHe is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. nMinihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.
