    The Black Pullet

    Second edition, unnumbered standard hardcover

    Dismissed by A.E. Waite as the probable work of mischievous priests in Rome, The Black Pullet is a ‘novella of ideas’ grounded in the Egyptomania that gripped France in the 1820s. Part magical handbook, part orientalist fantasy, in its various editions The Black Pullet was a popular, Bibliotheque Bleue-style grimoire in the spirit of Kircher’s Hermetic Egyptology at the very moment the new Egyptology was born. 

    This new edition presents the talismans of the 1820 edition made famous by Waite, along with the instructions for the ‘Black Hen who Lays the Golden Eggs’ and the ‘Black Owl’. It incorporates material from three variant editions of the book, and contextual extracts from its literary inspiration, ‘Le Comte de Gabalis’. 

     

    The Red Dragon

    Second edition, unnumbered standard hardcover

    The Red Dragon, also known as "The Grand Grimoire" is one of the most sensational and notorious black magic Grimoires. It gives explicit instructions on how to call up and make a pact with the Devil’s prime minister in Hell, Lucifuge Rofocale.  

    Several versions of The Red Dragon exist with minor or significant differences. This is a new faithful English edition.

     

    Le Petit Albert

    Second edition, unnumbered standard hardcover

     

    In some respects, Le Petit Albert was the epitome of the Bibliothèque Bleue grimoires: it appeared from virtually nowhere in the early eighteenth century, was almost immediately condemned by the censor, and was spread across France by itinerant booksellers passing from village to village, town to town.

     

    Our edition celebrates the text as a window into the lives of the small people, with its advice on how to win at fishing, turn table wine into fine liqueur, stop your spouse wandering and keep the actual wolf from the door. This folk wisdom blends into Paracelsan magic and the famed description of the Hand of Glory and the Mandrake, which formed the basis for a fascination which endures to this day. But much more than that, Le Petit Albert became synonymous with sorcery in the French colonies of North America and the Caribbean, and is one of the most important texts in traditional New World magic. We have worked from the 'Lyon' edition dated 1752, which expands on the earlier editions and stabilizes the text, apparently forming the solid basis for what followed.
