Chelmsford, UK, 2002: Xoanon Publishing Ltd., 2002. First Edition Thus - Limited, Signed. Hardcover. Large Octavo. 366pp. Original gilt-stamped green cloth boards with tan goat-skin spine, marbled endpages, in gilt stamped matching cloth slipcase. B&W illustrations, glossary. First hardcover edition. Arguably the best issue of Chumbley's famous work: limited to 44 numbered copies. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Chumbley: "To Unas from Alogos," Edition Number "D-43 [symbols] / 43 of 44." Included is a black textured paper envelope, inscribed on the front by Chumbley "Talisman of the Twenty-First Letter Revers'd, 43 of 44" containing a talismanic card (a single sheet folded to give fours sides) which has one printed and numerous hand-drawn embellishments, highly decorated in colour and black and white by Andrew Chumbley, with talismans, sigils, artwork and calligraphic text. Originally published by in 1992 in a limited edition of only 300 copies, Azoetia or 'The Book of the Magical Quintessence' has become one of the most sought-after new magical works of our time and may be regarded as the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft. Slipcase has a little light rubbing and the gilt is a little dulled, the leather spine is somewhat darkened. There is a little fraying to the cloth where it meets the leather spine on both the front and back boards, and there are general light signs of handling to the cloth. There are tiny 1/8 inch tears to the top and bottom of the front endpaper gutter, a little darkening to the fore-edge of the text block. The relatively minor flaws are are either the consequence of the type of binding, and/or a little light use, and it is hard to imagine that there would be many other copies in better condition unless they had been sealed and carefully packed away from new. A VG+ or better copyin VG+ original matching clothbound slipcase (no dust jacket issued). Item #58510
