Catalogues

In addition to adding fresh stock to our online inventory weekly, we produce regular catalogues in our areas of specialty. Special catalogue subjects include Alchemy and Hermetica, Aleister Crowley, Magick and Grimoires, Spiritualism, and Witchcraft. We also issue our regular "Miscellany" catalogues which cover many fields of interest. If you would like to be notified when we release a new catalogue please sign up to our mailing list (on the left).

Our most recent catalogues, in descending order, are:

Catalogue 196: Aleister Crowley & Associates

The catalogue consists of works relating to Aleister Crowley and his circle.  As usual it is quite a broad selection, including a number of unusual modern printings, some of which are limited editions and signed copies. There are also a number of unusual earlier items.  Amongst the latter are the first US edition of Crowley’s The Diary of a Drug Fiend (Dutton, 1923), first editions of Book 4, Parts I & II (2 Volumes: 1912 & 1913), The Tale of Archais (1898), and Carmen Saeculare (1901).  Rare ephemeral items include an envelope fragment with Crowley’s name and address in his own handwriting and a large blob of red wax impressed with his eye of Horus seal (much rare than his later Ankh-af-na-khonsu seal); and an amusing and revealing holograph list of errands which Crowley prepared for his disciple J. G. Bayley to undertake on his behalf (December 1943).

Catalogue 195: Spiritualism & Psychical Research

The catalogue comprises the usual mix of books, journals and pamphlets, on Spiritualism, Psychical Research, and related aspects of occultism. 

Catalogue 194: Magick

This catalogue comprises a very varied selection of books on Magick and the kindred occult arts.  In addition to some unusual older publications there are a number of signed copies, limited and deluxe editions, and quite scarce modern printings.

Catalogue 193: Mythology - Spring 2018

The catalogue comprises a wide variety of books on myths, legends, and the study thereof, from stories of Atlantis through Celtic legends and Icelandic sagas to the less-mainstream aspects of Zoology (cryptozoology). 

Catalogue 192: Alchemy & Hermetica - Spring 2018

The catalogue is noteworthy on account of the good selection of books published by Adam McLean under his Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks imprint that it contains.  For the rest it has an eclectic mix of scholarly and "practical" books on alchemy and kindred hermetic arts, mostly modern and in lovely condition, as well as a few scarce out-of-print titles.

Catalogue 191: Spring Miscellany

The one hundred and ninety-first of our internet catalogues is now available.  It is another of our "Miscellany" lists comprising a varied
selection of books and ephemera on different subjects.  Most of the items listed are relatively recent second-hand publications but with a few rarities scattered throughout. 

Catalogue 190: Aleister Crowley, Friends & Followers

The catalogue consists of works relating to Aleister Crowley and his circle.  As usual it is quite a broad selection, comprising modern books, including limited editions and signed copies, and a number of unusual earlier items.

Catalogue 189: Spiritualism & Psychical Research

The catalogue comprises a number of books, journals and pamphlets, on Spiritualism, Psychical Research, and related aspects of occultism.  The items range from the genuinely rare to quite modestly priced used items, whilst a number of signed or inscribed copies can be found scattered throughout.
