Crossed Keys. Being a Chimeric Binding of Both The Black Dragon and the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III.

UK: Scarlet Imprint, 2011. First Edition. Hardcover. Small Octavo. 240pp. Bound in black and gold cloth, with gilt crossed key design to upper board and spine, gilt lettering to upper board, ribbon marker and heraldic endpapers. The cloth-bound edition limited to 685 hand- numbered copies, this copy SIGNED by Cecchetelli by way of a "Weiser Antiquarian Books" book plate affixed to the front blank. The first joint publication of these two complimentary grimoires, newly translated, and with extensive commentary and analysis by Cecchetelli, much of which is drawn from his own practice using the texts. The designs of of the original seals are included, as are corrected and restored versions which have been reworked in sympathy with the system utilised by Jake Stratton-Kent in "The True Grimoire." The text "The Black Dragon" includes much traditional magic and cunning lore, whereas "The Enchiridion" is an earlier work of what purports to be Christian magic. There is apparently a little-known relationship between the texts, which Cecchetelli explores. A lovely "as new" copy, thus in Fine condition. (No dust jacket - as issued). Item #67544
