Originally published by Chumbley in softcover in 1992 in a limited edition of only 300 copies, Azoëtia or "The Book of the Magical Quintessence" is one of the most sought-after magical works of our time. The publisher describes it as: "the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition in its present phase of work. Azoëtia is comprised of three main parts: an exposition of preliminary magico-aesthetic formulae with detailed descriptions of working tools; the full text of the Sabbatic Rituals of Ingress, Congress, and Egress; and an eleven-chaptered Grimoirium 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." The full title of the accompanying booklet is ""The Rite of Amethystine Light Liber Sa-Bapho-Mitr sub figura 77, a Conjuration of the Averse or Shadow-form of the Daimon Sethos, it being the patron of the Grimoire Azoetia." Very light rubbing to the cloth but still in near Fine condition, complete with the called-for inserts (the larger envelope some what untidly opened) in near-fine slipcase (the slipcase has a few light marks as is almost always the case due to the nature of the cloth used).
