NP [ Hercules CA ]: Xoanon Publishing Ltd, 2014. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Large thick. Quarto. 834pp plus limitation page. Stark black embellishments on crimson cloth black titling to spine. Frontis, numerous b&w illustrations and sigillae by the author throughout, glossary, index to illustrations. This edition limited to 808 hand-numbered copies. "The Dragon Book of Essex" was previously available in 1997- only in a private initiatic edition of ten copies, each having three volumes. Subsequently, portions of the book were diffused through the Cultus' outer group, 'The Companie of the Serpent Cross' for private study and solitary work. This first public release of the Dragon-Book incorporates refinements to the text made by the author in 1998, 2000, 2001, and 2003, as well as corrections and marginalia from his own personal working copy and previously unpublished illustrations. Following Chumbley's Azoëtia, The Dragon Book of Essex represents the second work of Chumbley's three-book magical opus the Trimagisterion. From this period of work, Chumbley formulated 'Crooked Path Sorcery' as a trans-historical magical model, operant in a number of systems of sorcery, most notably in the witchcraft of his native Essex. The Dragon Book of Essex originally comprised a portion of the rites and practices of an inner conclave of the Cultus Sabbati known as The Column of the Crooked Path. The Crooked Path ritual system includes a cycle of ten extensive Mystery-rites, each accompanied by adjunctive solitary rituals and detailed commentaries. Additional texts relate the intricacies of Sabbatic ritualization, as well as an extensive body of stellar lore and ritual. A detailed section on the Magical Weapons of the Draconian Sorcerer complements the text. This work is intended as an entire resumé of the ancestral and ophidian components of Traditional Craft Sorcery and Sabbatic Gnosis. This dual-natured work is realised through rites of bodily sacrifice unto the Serpent, and subsequently through a year-long cycle of practices. Appears "as new" thus a lovely Fine copy inside and out (no dust jacket issued). Very large and heavy - additional shipping and insurance WILL be required for all services to all destinations.
