Chumbley's visionary book, Azoetia was first published in 1992 and is regarded as the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. In 2002 the second "Sethos" edition of Azoetia sold out within months of its release. This third edition is limited to 1,000 standard hardcover copies, 111 "deluxe" copies, and 22 "special" copies. The Third Edition presents the complete text of the 'Sethos Edition' of 2002, being the definitive recension of the work. Original images have been digitally conserved and the whole has been freshly typeset, prited offset lithography on 70 lb cream acid-free archival stock, octavo format. The grimoire Azoetia is comprised of three main parts: an exposition of preliminary magico-aesthetic formulae with detailed descriptions of working instruments; the full text of the Sabbatic Rituals of Ingress, Congress, and Egress; and an eleven-chaptered grimoire detailing the arcana and composite practices of the Sacred Alphabet -- the twenty-two lettered code of sorcerous principles underlying the practical spectrum of the Arte Magical. The entire work intends the reification of traditional British cunning-craft praxis according to the spiritual vision and artistry of a contemporary initiate." A lovely copy - Fine in fine dust jacket. Item #58079
