1) Three New Books

Frederick Hockley (scribe), A Complete Book of Magic Science, Containing the method of constraining and exorcising spirits to appearqnce, the consecration of Magic Circles and the Form of a Bond of Spirits, Teitan Poress 2008 Small format xviii + 115pp No. Ltd Ed. Of 450. Coloured plates. Ed. &n Intro Dietrich Bergman. In 1960 someone calling themselves Malachus Malachai published the Secret Grimoire of Turiel with an unlikley story (involving a defrocked priest) as to how he had acquired the text in 1927. Most informed readers considered it a modern contrivance. However the 1960 text, aside from some additional material apparently copied from Waite books, is a variant of sections of this text, scribed by Hockley in the middle of the mid 19th Century and which claims to be copied from a 16th Century Latin manuscript. The tenor of the grimoire is unusual. Whilst not explicitly Catholic it is quite “high church” with use of holy water, vestments and so forth. As with “ecclesiastical underground” material the spirits are called forth by the holy names of Christianity but here they are considered to be noble and benevolant rather than infernal. The incense recipes are decidedly non-vegetarian, including body parts from a variety of small animals. A number of coloured plates of the original manuscript are reproduced. These show Hockley’s drawings of the sigils which are elegant and thought provoking, some have shading suggesting three dimensionality. and the text is ably introduced and edited, with comparisons to the Turiel text, by Dietric Bergman. Hockley was a major figure in the pre-Golden Dawn occult milieu. In the field of occult publishing a new grimoire is always worth of note, this one is a special curiosity as it establishes an important pedigree for one often considered modern and spurious. New Order No. 520010 £31.50

2) A Collection of Works by Gerald Massey

Gerald Massey was born in 1828 in a hut, the son of an illiterate labourer. At the age of 8 he commenced work, doing 48 hours a week in a mill. Aside from some basic education at a charity school he was entirely self-taught. He grew up top be a Chartist and a Socialist active in promoting workers’ co-operatives writing in the underground press. He made a sometimes precarious living as poet, author, journalist and lecturer. He embraced spiritualism but in the later years of his life that he embarked upon a series of research and publication projects which he regarded as his most important work. These were ” …an attempt to recover and reconstitute the lost origins of the myths and mysteries, types and symbols, religion and language, with Egypt for the mouthpiece and Africa as the birthplace.” He applied the principle of Evolution to human culture seeing Africa as the birthplace of human civilization. many contemporary reviews were hostile however certain occult circles eagerly embraced his ideas. Massey had already been made Chosen Chief of the Most Ancient Order of Druids and included reference to their teachings. Albert Churchward described the same Egyptian in the “Origin and Antiquity of Freemasonry” and Leadbeater and others developed the theme. In fact Massey and Churchward, a high ranking mason, were good friends and collaborated closely. Their shared passion for the mysteries transcending Massey’s dislike of both Masonic secrecy and Churchward’s Tory politics. Blavatsky was impressed and enthusiastic, quoting Massey extensively in the Secret Doctrine. More recently Kenneth Grant drew upon Massey, attributing to him the idea that in Ancient Eygypt the first phases of religion were stellar and lunar in orientation with emphasis on the Mother Goddess, the male role in procreation not being realised. This was followed by solar orientated phases where the Father and Son became central to religious mysteries. This view is central to the Typhonian conception of Aeonics. In fact Massey intended that the first issue of the Book of Beginnings marked the beginning of a new Aeon and timed its issue to co-inside with associated astronomic events, to quote a notice that appeared in Vol.II:-

Mother Shipton’s Prophecy of the “End of the World” in the year 1881
Some relics of the ancient Circle-Craft are still extant in Britain, and we have misinterpreted Prophecies in common with the Hebrews (See pp338 – 398). According to one of these the world is to end in the year 1881.
The “end of the world” is the end of an Aeon. Age or cyle of Time, and we have seen the Prophecy fulfilled in the rare Lunar and Planetary Conjunction which occurred on the 3rd of March. It now remains for Scientific Astronomy to determine the length of this particular Cycle of Time and define its relationship to the period of Precession.
The Ending of the old World (or Aeon) and commencement is an appropriate date for the birth of a Book of Beginnings

The parallels with Crowley’s Aeonics are curious!

Remarkably Massey was specific as to which part of Africa civilization started, the Great lakes region. This is exactly the area that Louis Leakey did indeed find the earliest human remains and evidence of the first use of tools. Moreover, modern DNA analysis shows that Massey was exactly right. All humanity does derive from migrants from Central Africa. Linguists now attempt, as did Massey, to discern the original common language of our ancestors.

Despite the last volume being issued by a different publisher the first editions of Massey’s Magnum Opus offered here are of uniform format (11ins x 7.5ins) with the same binding of maroon cloth with restrained black decoration. His surname has been punned with “massive” and together they do weigh almost 10 kilos! The nine titles listed below are a collection and are offered in one lot.

1) A Book of Beginnings, Williams and Norgate 1881, Two volumes 503pp & 684pp Vol. I has spotting to the first half dozen and last couple of leaves, there is slight wear to top and tail of spine and very slight rubbing of cloth covering boards. There is slight creasing to the cloth covering the spine but this appears to be an original binding error. Vol. II has spotting to the first and last couple of leaves, top and tail of spine and corners bumped. Overall VG –

6) The Historical Jesus and the Mythical Christ, What Christianity owes to Ancient Egypt, Pioneer Press for the Secular Society, Not Dated card covered booklet 45pp. Date of issue a matter of speculation but the Pioneer Press tended to be associated with the Secular Society in the 1930s and 40s, after 1961 the organisation more consistently referred to itself as the National Secular Society Fine Condition

A close friend, a Democratic senator called Harold Hughes is visited by two angels who tell him two books will come to him from New York that will change the world. The books are Massey’s Book of Beginnings to which the author in introduced on the same day to by an enigmatic teacher of Gnosticism. It is interesting to note this teacher was a black guy, With his emphasis upon Africa Massey has recently received attention from Black Studies, significant to note Afro-American use of his work more than forty years ago. The author presents many of Massey’s ideas with modern references in a more concise form. The book is actually very scarce, especially in its dustwrapper. Fine in Fine DW

3) Spiritualist and other Typescripts

Hannen Swaffer, Typescript Records of Seances, carbon copy typescripts, 1925 250 leaves, mostly 10ins x 7ins in three card binders. Records of séances running from 18th February to April 6th 1925. 26pp are accounts of visits to other, public meetings containing also reflections upon the séances. Some handwritten annotations by Swaffer. These record a famous series of séances with the direct voice medium George Valiantine.

It would appear from references in these typescripts that there was something of a crisis in the Society of Psychical Research. There were fears that members would desert unless proof of the claims of spiritualism was finally found. The mediumship of Valiantine promised to furnish the evidence. Many wished to attend, Swaffer names well over fifty including famous actors, singers, authors, aristocrats and diplomats. These include Radcliffe Hall, Somerset Maugham, E.J. Dingwall, Arthur Conan Doyle, Ivor Novello, Dame Clara Buck- a full list of those mentioned is available on request). The meetings were held in darkness the communications being received by means of a luminous trumpet which apparently floated in the air. There were spirit guides, named discarnate entities some of who were shared by other mediums. These were thought to facilitate the attendance of spirits of the beloved departed. One can understand why intelligent people thought Valiantine a genuine medium. These typescripts describe how the wife of the Chinese legate attended and was addressed by a voice she thought was her father’s which talked in the two (of twenty) dialects of Chinese that he spoke when alive. The wife of the Danish ambassador attends who is addressed in her native Russian. Other foreign language experiments were less successful though frequently the spirits give information that convinces the sitters that they are talking to the spirits of dead relatives. Participants felt they were on the edge of unprecedented recognition by modern society of the reality of survival after death, disincarnate intelligence and occult phenomena. This famous series of séances have been discussed elsewhere, for example Dennis Bradley’s “Towards the Stars” and Hannen Swaffer’s Northcliffe Returns and received a great deal of attention in the press and from Society of Psychical Research. It is difficult to overstate the importance of these substantial contemporary notes by one of the central participants. Later, the host of these séances and the main advocate of Valiantine’s powers, Dennis Bradley, accused him of fraud when he was asked to produce physical evidence. One view, that does explain all the facts, is that Valiantine was a ventriloquist and charlatan who, on occasion, had a truly supernatural ability to impersonate deceased relatives. Such an ability might be fuelled by the belief and excitement of the sitters which would be impossible to replicate now.

These typescripts are also an important historical document. Tensions within the Society of Psychic Research are alluded to. Two of its researchers who attended a number of meetings were Radcliffe Hall, author of Well of Loneliness, the first lesbian novel, and her partner Una, Lady Troubridge. There is no indication of any prejudice on the part of Swaffer or the other sitters, though one of the spirit guides notes their masculine clothes. Of course these were socially progressive scenes. Swaffer was a Socialist and there is here an account of a meeting held in the Minerva Café, a restaurant operated by the Woman’s Freedom League, a radical offshoot of the Suffragette movement.

There is a greasy stain which has affected the binders and the lower part of approximately half the pages. Whilst entirely legible (aside from Swaffer’s handwriting which is difficult to read regardless of condition) these items are in Good condition only. Order No. 500001 £650

http://www.caduceusbooks.com/occultartgallery/Doc5.htm

R.E,D. Sketchley, Austin Osman Spare, The Art Journal, 12pp. 2008 No. Ltd. Ed. Of 59 copies 9ins x 7.5ins No publisher is given but this item has been issued by the Mandrake Press Ltd. which produced Celebration, Existence, Adventures in Limbo, Oswell Blakeston, and the recent three volume Vera Wainwright /Austin Osman Spare collection. All available copies of these Spare items were snapped up, purchasers confident they were acquiring a high quality item that would soon be worth more than they paid. The present publication deliberately offers a similar opportunity in a more widely accessible price bracket. The original cover decoration of the Art Journal is reproduced on thick dark green card, the text and four illustrations being reproduced on 120 gramme cream goatskin parchment paper. The original journal is dated 1908 so this reprint comes 100 years later, it refers to the recent exhibition at the Bruton gallery. It gives testament to the stir caused by the young Spare in artistic circles starting “There must be few people in London interested in art who do not know the name Austin Osman Spare”. It discusses the controversial nature of his work and his creative process. “The source of his art is himself, the deepest, not yet fully known or controlled self from which, by thought, proceeds creative power of every kind. The text has been elegantly reset to create a handsome item. Order No. AOS_AJ £12

Pencil drawing 11ins x 17.5ins (in glazed frame 17ins x 23.5ins) Signed AOS. We see a finely drawn old man with the folds of his cloak swirling upwards into amorphous energy that starts to manifest a mask, snarled at by an animal head formed by the folds of his sleeve. He views to aethereal women. They are also examined by a slightly deformed angel who rises between a grotesque woman protruding her tongue with the almost dark moon behind her. Above the scene swirls energy and a winged daemon head with an arrow for a tongue. A fine example of Spare’s occult art. There are about a dozen unobtrusive brown spots AOS03 £1275

Pastel 11.5ins x 22ins (in gazed and gilded frame 24ins x 33ins) Signed AOS twice and dated twice 1955 & 1956. Presumably the picture was added to at the later date.

Anon, Wicca, A Course for Home Study, School of Intregrated Health Not Dated A4 format 159pp in hardback binding. 13 lessons in all, the teachings of a Wiccan coven.The anonymous voice who appears to be the main author states that he knew Gerlad Gardner and Jack Bracelin well but states that he was aware of three covens that Gerald was unaware of and that he (or she, but it sounds like a man) was initiated into a traditional coven in Essex. He states that, sometimes deliverately, Gardner taught a different form of wicca than that practised by his ibitiators. Curiously, in the section dealing with the origins of Wicca there are two pages about Charles Cardell who, under the name of Rex Nemorensis wrote a very well informed expose of Gardner. The writer is rather ambiguous about Cardell and applauds his alternative health products. Aside from the history of Wicca there are also instructions about the festivals, folklore, runes, the tarot, numerology, Gods & Gioddesses, magical lore of trees, possibility of communication with plantlife, tools of witchcraft, opening asnd closing of a circle, magic asnd sex. It discusses Gardnerian rituals and gives the Gardnerian first degree initiation but maintains that Traditional Wicca is somewhat variant. Surprisingly the writer does seem to advocate ritual nudity. It is claimed that these lessons derive from a school of Wicca akin to but predating and somewhat different from the Gardnerian craft. It sahould be emphasised that the great majority of actual very straightyforward teachings complied from published sources Fine Order No. 440070 £150

11) Autonomic Satanists

British

Anon, Niger Liber Benelus, Exoteric Lex, Orthodox Temple of the Prince 1986 Revised Ed LF 253 leaves printed on one side, some hand coloured diagrams, duplicated sheets in card binder. Introduction associates it with Prof R. Shareth & Ramon, in fact written by Ray Bogarde. It is substantial account of teachings & practices of Orthodox Temple of the Prince, or New Order of Satanic Templars or Benelist Satanists. Through George Brooke (from W.B.Crow) these may have had some Gnostic Catholic Church succession though this is not mentioned. The author joined the Order a few years after the Second World War. There appears to have been some conflict with the branch represented by this work parting company with other temples associated with coloured scenes operating prostitution rings and sex clubs. There is an attempt to codify the practice of different temples with this work, which was first written in 1972, this being a greatly revised version. A curious, and rare, item. Chapter headings include Comp0arative Witchcraf and Benelism; Traditional Witchcraft; Gardnerian Wichcraft; Orthodox Benelism; Organisation of the Temple; Piresthood Offices; Temple layout; Altar Faith; Initiation and Baptism; Degrees and Tests; Need for Trianing in Occult Study; Three Levels of Consciousness; Pentacle and Pentagram; First Three Silver Paths; Sigilogy; Sigils of the Spirits; Tanith & Atoroth; Rituals; Black Mass; Probationer to Neophite; Consecration of Higher Piresthood; Convocation of Higher Priesthood VG Order No. 510018 £475

14) Payment Methods

Please note a useful guide to exchange rates can be found at:-
http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Payment can be made in any of the following ways:-

1) Payment through PayPal at http://www.paypal.com/, my user names
are my email address:- ben@caduceusbooks.com or ben@cadu.demon.co.uk
2) Credit card (Mastercard, Access or Visa) or Debit Card (Switch or Solo). Please note that I do also need the security code (the three digits on the reverse of the card) and the address to which the card is registered. For security reasons some people like to send their number in the following ways:–
a) by fax
b) telephone (there is an answering machine to which only I have access
when I am not here)
c) divide it into two and send it in two separate email messages. For extra security one can be sent to ben@caduceusbooks.com and the other to
my secondary email address ben@cadu.demon.co.uk
d) encode it. I would suggest leaving the first four digits unchanged but for the remaining digits and security code add 3 to each digit (ie 1 becomes 4, 7 becomes 0, 9 becomes 2 etc) leaving the expiry date unchanged. This arrangement can be referred to as “YOUR CODE”
e) spell some of the numbers out eg 44six8 etc
3) International Money Order made out in British Currency
