A Complete Book of Magic Science
An Excellent Little Grimoire
This book presents a system of magic for dealing with planetary spirits concocted by 19th century magician Frederick Hockley for sale to the customers of the bookseller John Denley. Much of this was later appropriated for another grimoire, the Secret Grimoire of Turiel, but this presents material not present in the other book. This is a landmark publication in the occult field.
Hardcover. 136pp. Quality black cloth binding w/ gilt sigil stamped on the front cover, and gilt title etc. on the spine. This Edition is Limited to 450 numbered copies. Color frontispiece and a 16 page color insert printed on special coated paper stock, and which reproduce the original colored illustrations of sigils, seals, magical tools, etc. Numerous black and white reproductions of sigils, Hebrew letters, etc. in-text. Until this printing, the grimoire has existed only in manuscript form apparently derived from 'an ancient Latin manuscript,' said to date from 1519. The work is clearly related to the book known as 'The Secret Grimoire of Turiel,' although it is lengthier and contains much additional material.
