This deluxe edition also includes an audio CD: "Order 41: Conjuration of Beelzebub" with seven audio tracks. From the publisher: "Birthed from strange and ancient larvae, the demon Beelzebub is often heard but seldom seen. His presence throughout history is fleeting, sudden, ever evasive. Even in the light of modern studies, references to the 'God of Ekron' are scant and largely academic. Drawn from many years practical experience working with Beelzebub and his servitors, Legion 49 provides us with a rare glimpse of 'the Lord of the Flies' and the dark quintessence of his Legion. In a series of short, de-constructionist essays the artist explores traditional methods of evocation and the myths surrounding Beelzebub, before providing an iconographical and sigillic recension of his horde of forty-nine servitors, glimpsed through the protective-symmetry of the paper-cut traditions of old Mexico." There is faint offset on the rear endpaper of silver ink from the hand drawn sigil - otherwise a lovely clean Fine copy in Fine dust jacket, housed in a Fine clothbound slipcase. Item #64148
