Comprehensive guide to sound frequencies within Tantra from a western perspective. Tiny nick to outer edge of front cover without loss, otherwise fine £6

M86CC. Gray, W.G, Inner Traditions of Magic, 1st edition, Aquarian Press 1970, 8vo, mottled grey cloth with red foil titles to spine, top edge stained dark green, 287pp including index, with a foreword by Israel Regardie; a practical guide to magic with the western tradition. Edges of boards rubbed, small closed split to foot of upper joint, edges of text block soiled, where previously damp colour at top edge of text block slightly bleeding into top margins, inner hinges neatly reinforced, creases to a couple of page corners, minor spotting to end papers and a couple of margins, lack title page but textually complete and tight, a sound reading copy of the uncommon first issue £12

Mh91. Haining, P, The Man Who Was Frankenstein, 1st edition Muller 1979, 8vo, black cloth with gilt titles to spine, 6 + 166pp, illustrated. Looks at the life and work of Andrew Crosse, nick-named "the wizard of the Quantocks" and accused of being in league with the devil due to his experiments to create life. The author argues that Crosse plays an overlooked role in the creation of Mary Shelly's novel. Very good in like d/w £3.50

MH91W. Haining, P, The Warlock’s Book: Secrets of Black Magic from the Ancient Grimoires, 1972, University Books, no date (early 1970s), 8vo, red cloth with spine lettered in black, 110pp, with diagrams and other illustrations in the text (some full page). The book purports to be a reconstruction of a now lost Elizabethan grimoire.  It is in essence, a work of practical magic focussing on the more controversial aspects of occultism, such as sexual magic, drugs, the Black Sabbath, etc, drawn from a variety of extant texts, some of which are extremely rare. The short appendix consists of modern witchcraft initiation rites that the author also includes under the banner of ‘black magic’.  Faint stain to lower corner of front board near spine, small stain to lower outer corner of text block, very slightly affecting the tips of a couple of margins, otherwise internally clean and tight, a very good copy of this increasingly uncommon title in like (a few minor marks, light wear to edges with a couple of tiny chips) d/w £45

MH91AC. Hancox, J, The Byrom Collection, 1st edition, Jonathan Cape 1992, small 4to, blue cloth with gilt titles to spine, 320pp including index, with a frontispiece and many illustrations in the text (some coloured). An excellent study of the Byrom collection, a series of drawings once belonging to an eighteenth century secret society,  featuring ground-plans relating to the Globe theatre and other famous London buildings, revealing their sacred geometry and relationship to Renaissance mystical thought. A couple of minor spots to front end paper otherwise near fine in very good ( edges lightly rubbed, a couple of trivial soil marks, faint crease to top of rear panel, becoming uncommon in hard cover £12

MH91AA. Hannay, J.B, The Rise, Decline and Fall of the Roman Religion, 1st edition, privately published for the Religious Evolution Research Society 1925, 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt titles to spine, 14 + 257pp, with illustrations in the text + a frontispiece portrait and 19 plates. A rather misleading title for those unfamiliar with the author’s work, in which he seeks to show the origins of Christianity amongst ancient pagan religions, with an emphasis on phallic worship and sexuality. The ‘Roman Religion’ referred to is that of the Bible, which the author sees as written by the Romans, and derived in part from Roman paganism. Spine darkened and slightly worn at head, corners rubbed, minor closed splitting to joints, end papers browned,  blacked out inscription to front end paper, small spot to blank margin of frontispiece and title page, otherwise internally clean and tight, overall a good + copy of the uncommon first issue £15
