From the publisher: "The Opuscula Magica series treats in four volumes the short exegetical works on magic by the British occult author Andrew D. Chumbley (1967-2004). The series presents his magical essays, homilies, and other obscure works which originally appeared in small-circulation occult journals now out of print. Each volume presents a series of collated works, some revised or updated prior to his death, as well as a number of writings and illustrations previously unpublished. Together with his grimoire-texts of the magical order Cultus Sabbati, these 'minor works on magic' are the origination-point and foundation texts of Sabbatic Witchcraft and Crooked Path Sorcery, two of Chumbley's most important contributions to the Art Magical ... This, Volume I, contains nine essays written between 1990 and 2003, including one previously unpublished. This volume also includes an Author's Introduction never before published, as well as an expanded version of the interview with Chumbley in The Cauldron. The essays reflect a degree of magical insight, clarity of vision, and creativity seldom equaled in occult writing to this day." Slight unevenness to join between leather and cloth of boards - obviously like this from new. Otherwise a lovely unused copy in Fine condition. (no dust jacket issued). Item #65065
