Edition limited to 1,000 numbered copies. From Scarlet Imprint: "A compilation of jinn conjurations and rituals translated from rare Arabic manuscripts in the author's private collection. Following an introduction summarising traditional beliefs about the world and nature of the jinn, the author proceeds to give a brief outline of the Middle Eastern occult methods for summoning these beings, techniques of dream divination, the mandal and invocation. The main body of the work comprises translations into English of numerous rituals and operations selected from manuscripts, primarily from Egypt and Morocco, in the author's collection. " Rain Al-Alim is the nom de plume of the author, who has chosen to remain anonymous to avoid the stigmatisation that practitioners of magic and sorcery can experience in his country. He holds a degree in journalism and is currently studying Arabic philology; and he has studied and practised the occult arts for approximately 17 years. His general interest and field of research are the magical traditions of the Middle East or Arabic magic known as Rohaniya. He also practices Sihr Soufli (from the Arabic 'underworld magic,' or 'black magic') which is related to the shayteen and underworld jinn. Rain started on his path as a student of a local Turkish magician, or hodja, and then continued with other teachers and practitioners from Arabic countries. Throughout his years of study and research he has collected many manuscripts, printed editions and handwritten records of local magicians and sheikhs in Arabic, Persian and Turkish. He possesses one of the richest libraries of Arabic occult literature in the Western world. NEW book in Fine condition. Item #59859
