Three Books of Occult Philosophy. Written by Henry Cornelius Agrippa, of Nettesheim ......

Hastings, England: Chthonios Books, 1987. Facsimile Edition - "Second Enlarged Chthonios Edition" Hardcover. Large Octavo, (6) + (xxii) + 584+ (10) pp Original blue cloth with gilt title etc. to spine. Illustrations. Printed on a buff-colored paper stock in hommage to the original edition. The Chthonios Books edition of Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" was the first edition language edition to be printed for over three hundred years. It is a slightly enlarged facsimile (with typed restorations of the introductory pages, and restorations to a few others that were too poor for reproduction) taken from a copy of the 1651 London edition. This second printing (1987 - the year after the first Chthonios edition) includes an Index that was not present in the first Chthonious edition. NOTE this edition was hand sewn, and there is some separation between the gatherings that would not be present in a machine bound work. Edges of text block a little dusty and with a hint of flecking, otherwise a tight, clean, VG + copy. (no dust jacket issued). Quite scarce. Item #72292
