The Magickal Formulary.
New York, NY: Magickal Childe Inc., March, 1981. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. Eccentrically paginated: (ii) + 140pp (+ii blanks). Glossy deep blue printed wrappers, formulary cross-references and index. A few b&w line diagrams. An encyclopedia of recipes for voodoo formulas, occult oils, incenses, powders, floorwashes, etc. followed by a short collection of spells and rituals. By Herman Slater (1938 – 1992), occultist, author, publisher and propietor of the legendary Magickal Childe Book Store of New York. Some of the content clearly relates to material that was then available for sale at Magickal Childe, but other is general instructions on how to manufacture particular potions, perform rituals etc. The book was later republished as "Magickal Formulary Volume I." This is a stated first edition, and appears such, although the cover blurb reads "New Expanded Edition ... with Spells!" Some rubbing and creasing to covers, and bruising to edges. A few light creases to spine. Overall a clean, internally unmarked, tight VG copy. Item #70548
