York Beach, ME: Samuel Weiser Inc., 2000. First Edition Thus. Hardcover, Large Quarto (approx 11-1/2 x 9 inches), xvi + 176pp. + 198pp. Decorated Cloth. Frontisportrait. Color & b/w plates. Diagrams, etc A facsimile reprint of the first (1801) edition of Barrett's influential magical treatise. The work played an important part in inspiring the nineteenth century occult revival, and its influence can surely be seen in the studies of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Aleister Crowley, et al. Perhaps the best modern edition: the five color plates have been reproduced from the originals using modern methods for color accuracy not achieved in previous reprints. Attractive hardcover printing. Old "new" stock. We have a small number of copies of this work that are actually brand new: purchased by us from the stock of a retired specialist dealer. Hint of shelf-wear, still near Fine condition in near Fine unclipped dust jacket (as common, the somewhat flimsy dust jacket looks a bit worn despite that it is not!) Typically secondhand copies of this edition sell for well over $300.00. Our "new" copies, while they last, are $195.00. Item #59170
