M83. Goldman, J & A, Chakra Frequencies: Tantra of Sound, 2005, Destiny Books 8vo pbk. 2011, 12 + 194pp including index + advertisement leaf, with a few diagrams in the text and c.d fixed to inside of rear cover as issued. Comprehensive guide to sound frequencies within Tantra from a western perspective. Tiny nick to outer edge of front cover without loss, otherwise fine £6

M82B. Goodwin, C.W, Fragment of a Graeco-Egyptian Work upon Magic, 1st edition, Aeon Sophia Press 2018, square 8vo, blue cloth with gilt titles to spine and front board, 10 + 10 +58 + 22pp + one plate, number 92 of a hand numbered limited edition of 200 hand copies, with additional material by Richard Ward and A.D Mercer. This rare first English translation of one of the most important Graeco- Egyptian magical texts has long been out of print and difficult to obtain. The fourth part in particular became one of the most well known texts within Western occultism when Aleister Crowley published it as the preliminary invocation to his version of the Goetia. He went on to declare the invocation the most powerful extant, later evolving the text into Liber Samekh, a ritual for achieving conversation with one’s holy guardian angel. The current work is a fully resituated facsimile reprint of Goodwin’s original text, translation and notes, together with the original paper announcing the work to the Cambridge Antiquarian society in 1851 which is reprinted here for the first time. Also included is a brief introductory essay on the modern translations of the work and its possible relationship to the Sethian gnosis by Richard Ward, and includes translations of the barbarous names of evocation not included by Godwin in his original. Near mint £40

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

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
