New Titles

LUNAR AND SEX WORSHIP
Ida Craddock
Edited and with an Introduction by Vere Chappell.
1st 2010 318pp Teitan Press hardback in dustwrapper. Frontis. Limited edition 650 numbered copies.
Philadelphia-born Ida Craddock (1857-1902) was a forceful public exponent of women’s rights and sexual freedom whose interest in Theosophy and Spiritualism led her into a profound involvement with the occult. Attacked by conservatives as promoting obscenity and immorality on account of her reforming activities, Craddock became the focus of an organised campaign of persecution. Facing a lengthy prison sentence that she did not expect to survive, she instead took her own life, at age forty-five. After her death, Craddock’s work on sexuality and occultism attracted the interest of a small number of well-known figures, including Aleister Crowley, who wrote that she possessed “…initiated knowledge of extraordinary depth. She seems to have had access to certain most concealed sanctuaries…. She has put down statements in plain English which are positively staggering.”
Amongst her papers, Craddock left two manuscripts, “Lunar and Sex Worship” and “Sex Worship (Continued)” that had been commissioned by her patron, the Spiritualist W. T. Stead. They are effectively studies of sexuality in religion and mythology, as viewed through the prism of Craddock’s own experiences and beliefs.
This Teitan Press edition of Lunar and Sex Worship is the first ever publication of “Lunar and Sex Worship” and “Sex Worship (Continued).” It comprises the complete text of both works, edited and introduced by Vere Chappell, an expert on the life and work of Craddock. £37.50 £20.00

WHITE STAINS
Aleister Crowley
2011 128pp Edda h/b in dustwrapper. Printed in 4 colours. Ltd. 418 copies. An entirely new edition, illustrated by Fredrik Söderberg. Aleister Crowley published White Stains in 1898, an era of intense creativity for the budding magus-to-be. The original edition of a mere 100 copies was printed in Amsterdam with the help of Leonard Smithers (publisher of Beardsley, Wilde, Burton et al). Part of the edition was later “appropriated” and destroyed by English Customs officers, due to the erotic nature of the poems. In a Victorian Zeitgeist that found Oscar Wilde intensely shocking, Aleister Crowley of course took everything one step further. Edited and with an introduction by William Breeze. This edition contains six stunning watercolour paintings by Fredrik Söderberg, reproduced in full colour. £44.99 £30.00

THREE MACABRE TALES
Rosaleen Norton
1st thus 2010 xxxii + 64pp Teitan Press h/b in d/w. Illus.
Ltd. ed. 666 numbered copies. A little-known sidelight to Norton’s career was the publication by the popular magazine, Smith’s Weekly, of three horror stories that she wrote while still in her teens. The short stories first appeared in Smith’s Weekly in 1934, and were later collected and published under the title Three Macabre Stories in an extremely limited letterpress edition in 1996. This new edition of contains those original three short stories, along with two previously unknown stories by Norton’s husband Beresford Conroy: works to which she almost certainly contributed. It also includes reproductions of a group of grotesque drawings executed by Norton not long after her involvement with Smith’s Weekly, the first-ever reprinting of three comic illustrations she drew for that magazine, and a revised Introduction and new Foreword by Keith Richmond. £32.50 £20.00

THE LANGUAGE OF BIRDS
Dale Pendell
1st 2010 72pp Three Hands Press small paperback. Illus.
Chance, the great beloved of gamblers, lovers, generals and kings, has long held sway over mortal affairs. Whether assuming the form of the goddess Fortuna and her ever-turning Wheel, or the abstract mathematic of ‘randomness’ , Her favour is universally sought, and Her displeasure feared. To the devotee of Chance, Divination may be regarded as Her secret liturgy, providing glimpses of the unknown to those she esteems. Into the retort of the alchemist-poet, Pendell compounds portent, omen, oracle, and the art of prediction to distill The Language of Birds, a reverie upon the nature of the Goddess of Fortune and the sacred function of Chance. Dale Pendell is the author of the Pharmako triad of books (Pharmako/Poeia, Pharmako/Dynamis, Pharmako/Gnosis), exploring the mystical poesis of psychotropic plants and the Poison Path. £9.99 £5.00

THE GRIMOIRE OF ARTHUR GAUNTLET
A 17th century London Cunning-man’s book charms, conjurations and prayers
David Rankine (ed)
1st 2011 336pp Avalonia trade p/b. Illus.
The Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet is an outstanding example of a seventeenth century London Cunning-man’s book of practice. Cunning-folk were practitioners of magic and herbal medicine who dealt with problems in their local communities. Cunning-man Arthur Gauntlet was based in Gray’s Inn Lane in London, and his personal working book contains a fascinating diverse mixture of herbal remedies, prayers, magical and biblical charms, with previously unseen angelic conjurations and magic circles, in an eclectic blend of practical magic for health, wealth, love and protection.
This unique manuscript demonstrates both the diverse and spiritual nature of such Cunning-folk’s books of practice, as well as their magical emphasis on Biblical scripture, particularly the Psalms, and their opposition to witchcraft, found in charms and conjurations. Arthur Gauntlet worked with a female skryer called Sarah Skelhorn, and drew on numerous preceding sources for his craft, including the Arbatel, the Heptameron, Folger Vb.26, The Discoverie of Witchcraft, the Book of Gold, the writings of the German magus Cornelius Agrippa, the astrologer William Bacon and Queen Elizabeth I’s court astrologer Dr. John Dee, as well as other London Cunning-folk. £22.99 £12.00

Charlotte Rodgers

It chronicles her use of road kill and blood in art, ritualised scarification and tattoo work, and the use of venous and menstrual blood in magick. Also included are Charlotte’s interviews with tattoo artists; priests from belief systems which utilise blood sacrifice; artists who use their own HIV positive blood as a medium; and those who use mortifications and body modification to effect changes in consciousness and self. The Bloody Sacrifice is an honest, modern and thought provoking personal insight into an ancient aspect of our spirituality and creativity. £10.99 £6.00

THE THOTH TAROT, ASTROLOGY & SELECTED WRITINGS
Phyllis Seckler
1st 2010 390pp Teitan Press hardback in dustwrapper. Limited edition 777 copies.
Phyllis Seckler (1917-2004) was introduced to the teachings of Aleister Crowley in the late 1930s and became a regular participant in the activities of Agape Lodge of the Ordo Templi Orientis in California, and rose to become a Ninth Degree member of the “Sovereign Sanctuary of the Gnosis.” She was admitted to the A.’. A.’. under the tutelage of Jane Wolfe, eventually taking the now well-known “magical name” Soror Meral and was later confirmed as an Adeptus Minor by Crowley’s successor, Karl Germer. The book includes a biographical sketch of Phyllis Seckler drawn from her own autobiographical writings, and two of her most important essays: “The Tarot Trumps of Thoth and Psychology” – a detailed analysis of the psychological and magical symbolism of the Trumps of the Thoth deck – and “Thoth Tarot and Astrology,” a significant study of astrology and the natal chart, with special reference to the cards of the Thoth deck. Both of these essays were previously serialized in Seckler’s journal In the Continuum, but they are here presented for the first time in book form, accompanied by redrawn and corrected diagrams.
In addition to the essays the book also contains a selection of important correspondence between Seckler, Crowley, Karl Germer and Jane Wolfe. These are followed by a transcript of the last major interview conducted with Phyllis Seckler, in which she recounted the details of her introduction to Thelema and involvement with the old Agape Lodge, her subsequent participation in various organizations, and her thoughts on developments within the Thelemic world. £37.50 £20.00
