Item: #M2.01: SOLD

A. E. WAITE

The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. Including the Rites and Mysteries of Goetic Theurgy, Scorcery and Infernal Necromancy.

London: George Redway, 1898. FIRST EDITION OF ONLY 500 COPIES. Original large octavo (250 x 190mm) black buckram cloth, silver titles to upper cover, new black leather spine?, new endpapers and top edge gilt, pp. xv, 298, [2 ads.] . Frontispiece and 9 further full page plates on variously coloured papers and many Magical illustrations throughout the text. Some rubbing to extremeties. Browning to first and last leaves. Generally clean and a tight copy - the leather spine makes in much less fragile than the original spine.

This is Waite' first extensive study of Ceremonial Magic and it is still a standard work in the field.

The work has two parts: The Literature of Ceremonial Magic and The Complete Grimoire. The Book contains most of the rare grimoires collected together. The title Black Magic was not Waite's idea, but the publishers in order to attract more customers. Needless to say that this first edition is very rarely seen and very sought after. Coumont [W3.5]; Gilbert [A14]
