Every copy of this printing perfumed and consecrated by the publisher. From the publisher: "The Red Goddess is an ecstatic journey through the unheard history of BABALON, from Revelations back through the Ishtar Gate and forward into a living modern magickal current. This is an explicit and challenging vision of a very modern Goddess coming into power. This is more than a history, it is a passionate account of living magick and the transcendent power of Love. The epic sweep of the text takes us from Babylon to Jerusalem to Rome, and onwards to Apocalypse. It looks at the angelic work of renaissance mage John Dee. It lays bare the excesses of Aleister Crowley, and unlocks the secrets of Waratah Blossoms. It explains the immolation of the Californian antichrist-superstar Jack Parsons and his relationship with Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. This is the missing history of the Holy Whore." This was the first book published by Scarlet Imprint - it first appeared in an edition of only 156 copies in 2007, and was reissued thus the year later. Very light bruising to spine ends and corners, a few very faint marks to cloth from handling (barely perceptible) else a tight, bright near Fine copy, (no dust jacket issued). Scarce. Item #66349
