We are pleased to announce that we are carrying:  GEOSOPHIA - THE ARGO OF MAGIC  By Jake Stratton-Kent Available in a /Rouge Unlimited paperback edition in two separate volumes. List Price: $59.99 for both volumes. Geosophia is Jake Stratton-Kent's masterpiece, tracing the development of magic from the Greeks to the grimoires, it lays bare the chthonic roots of ritual. By exposing the necromantic origins of much of modern magic we are able to reconnect with the source of our ritual tradition. There is a continuity of practice in the West which encompasses the pre-Olympian cults of Dionysus and Cybele, is found in the Greek Magical Papyri and Picatrix and flows into the grimoires. Rather than a muddle of superstition, the grimoire tradition is revealed as the living descendant of the ancient practices of the Goes. This is a work which redefines our understanding of the Western Tradition, one which does not begin with Cabbala or Solomon, but rather descends into the Underworld a
