EDGE OF THE CIRCLE BOOKS 
IS PROUD TO PRESENT 
THE FOLLOWING NEW TITLES:



THE BOOK OF ABRASAX. 
A Grimoire of the Hidden Gods, Practitioners Edition
By Michael Cecchetelli (Author), Derik Richards (Editor)
Publication Date: 2012
Hardcover: 152 pages
Publisher: Nephilim Press; 1ST edition (2012)
Hardcover. Octavo. [x] + 142pp. Bound in maroon cloth with gilt lettering to spine and gilt device on upper board. Smyth sewn. Edition limited to 700 hand numbered copies. New from the author of Scarlet Imprint's "Crossed Keys".
List Price: $50.00

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
This ancient and once fully developed system of magick, which fused transcendent rites of evocation and initiation with practical workings for attainment of wealth and power, languished for several centuries, all but disappearing into obscurity and existing only in scattered bits and pieces presented in academic or anthropological studies of ancient religions. A practicing magician, the author stays close to the original texts from which he draws - while making changes, additions, and insertions when practically called for. Cecchetelli understands that the needs of the academic and the needs of the magus are not always the same and that former scholarly translations were aimed at simple literal translations. He has the intelligence, wisdom, and daring to alter the text in accordance with the intended goal: producing a workable grimoire - suitable for the modern occultist. The Book of Abrasax includes chapters on spacial, protective, amorous, wealth, curse, and transcendent operations.

THE BOOK OF AZAZEL, 
The Grimoire of the Damned, Limited Edition
By A. E. Koetting
Publisher: Nephilim Press; 1ST edition (2012)
Hardcover. 184pp. Fine black cloth with gilt lettering to spine, gilt Circle of Pacts on upper board. Sewn, black endpapers, ribbon marker. Printed in red & black, b&w sigils throughout. Limited to 666 numbered copies.
List Price: $60.00


FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Published by Nephilim Press, The Book of Azazel is part magical diary, part how to manual and all Grimoire. Make no mistake about it this is the real deal and experienced practitioners will not only appreciate the knowledge contained within, but find it extremely useful while they walk on their path to occult power. This book contains the Names, attributes and sigils of 33 demons that belong to the three houses of Azazel. There is also a powerful summoning right that when used will allow you to contact these entities. This book is not for the beginner and rest assured we mean it when we say let the buyer beware.


FROM THE AUTHOR:
 "That which follows is the entirety of what I learned from the Demon during a ninety-day journey through hell, with Azazel as my guide. To Azazel... I can only trust that when this work is completed, he will set me free. Azazel is the embodiment of all that is forbidden, all that is secret, and all that I would sacrifice everything for. He called upon me to perform this damnable Operation: to commit myself to Him entirely, in order to possess all that is His. But fear overtook me. I didn't feel ready to drink from that cup, and so I drank from many others, flirting with the power that I knew could only be found in the blackest of rites and through the most obscene pacts. The Demon's call would not be silenced, and it forced me out of the serenity of Ascent, leaving me with no choice than to embrace the power of darkness, in a depth and intensity that I had never before imagined. The Book of Azazel initially seemed to mark my return to the Left Hand Path, to the sinister spirituality responsible for catapulting me into the knowledge and application of my own godhood. As the grimoire unfolded, day-by-day, what the Demon Azazel revealed to me obliterated every assumption that I've ever made, and has left me with little else to say. The magnitude of Azazel's teachings have left me speechless, for the first time in decades. What is recorded in this book: the rituals, the evocations, and the revelations... says all that can ever be said, and much, much more. It has also left me with the conviction that real power - the kind that can crumble nations and raise empires out of the sand - can only be found in the forbidden, in the demonic, beyond the horizon of damnation. And so I tremble as I present The Book of Azazel."

THE BOOK OF COELIUS
By Christopher Bradford
Paperback: 148 pages
Publisher: Hadean Press (November 7, 2012)
List Price: $19.95

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The Book of Coelius, by Christopher Bradford, presents a new system of practical alchemy rooted in the Western Hermetic Tradition. Kameothic Internal Alchemy is a distillation of ceremonial, alchemical and African-American conjure magic utilizing the practical methods of Hoodoo paired with Spagyric Alchemy to create change in the external world by working upon the individual from the Outside-In.
While the system has roots in antiquity, it is a new tradition begun by the author and his brothers in the Ordo Octopi Nigri Pulveri. This book is the training manual of that order.




Author Christopher Bradford covers such topics as the Language of the Birds, the use of the Picatrix, and describes alchemical tools of his own making, including the Staff of Imhotep. An explanation of the Spagyric Art as well as ritual practices and an analysis of Philalethes' Font of Alchemical Truth are only some of the areas treated in depth and with the excruciating care, one expects from an active practitioner of alchemy.

Bradford, himself trained in the Hermetic tradition, offers here an exciting new system for the practicing magician.

 THE PENTACLES OF SOLOMON
By S. Aldarnay
Paperback: 110 pages
Publisher: Hadean Press (October 15, 2012)
List Price: $16.50

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Author and illustrator S. Aldarnay presents each of the Pentacles given in the Key of Solomon, redrawn and with explanations of the divine names, the names of spirits, as well as the vesicles in English, Latin and Hebrew, in an attempt to make the individual's use of the seals more effective. By presenting the pentacles in full the author hopes that people will be inclined to experiment more with them, as the seals are able to bridge the gap between the high magic of angelic conjuration and divine names, and the folk magic which utilizes psalms and spiritual assistance for more day to day concerns.

THE STARRY RUBRIC: 
Seventeenth-Century English Astrology and Magic
By Alexander Cummins
Hardcover: 166 pages
Publisher: Hadean Press (November 29, 2012)
List Price: $32.95

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Seventeenth-century England was a turbulent place to live. It was a century of civil wars, regicide, food riots and plague — a time of millenarian prophets and threatening witches, of radical sects and experiments in Commonwealth.

It was a revolutionary period. The lifting of printing press censorships created a veritable explosion of printed materials: from popular almanacs and calendars to handbooks of do-it yourself medicine, from vulgate Bibles to tomes of new, investigative natural philosophy and grimoires of occult science and ritual magic.

In the midst of all this, the astrologer-magicians of seventeenth-century England drew their charts of the heavens, divining answers and prescribing magical medicines.

In The Starry Rubric, Alexander Cummins shows how astrology and magic offered analysis, interpretation, and solutions — locating humanity in a shifting web of interrelation with the stars and, indeed, the cosmos as a whole. Through analysis and example, Cummins demonstrates the ways in which astrology and magic were crucial to early modern perspectives on human life, time, and meaning.

Alexander Cummins obtained his undergraduate and master’s degrees in History at the University of Leeds. He is currently conducting his doctoral research into early modern magic and the emotions, as well as teaching at the University of Bristol.

He is Head of the Department of Historical Magic at Arcanorium College, as well as a published performance poet who runs creative writing workshops around the UK. He has written on topics ranging from 2012-centred apocalypse narratives to histories and philosophies of the cut-up technique.
