Facsimile Edition

Published by The Hell Fire Club, UK, Not Dated (c. 2005)

Bound in Quarter Goatskin Leather 

Limited to 72 copies


Mint condition.

This is the original Quarter Leather Hell Fire Club edition of the Crowley's GOETIA. Although not dated, it is believed to have been published in 2005. This is, without any doubt, the most impressive edition published, in recent years, and is very hard to find. This has been produced by the Hell Fire Club, in a large format folio size, with the text having been printed on very high quality, thick and heavy, oyster conqueror paper, with dyed paper edges, and the leaves were then hand bound by means of ties into the leather case. The quarter leather binding is dark maroon goatskin, which has been tanned with oak bark. The titling is by way of a paper label pasted to the front cover. Opening the covers reveals stunning viridian green, red & gold marbled endpapers. According to the limitation page, this edition was limited to only 72 copies (which includes the quarter or half leather copies - each numbered after the spirits of Solomons Brazen Vessel, with a hand-drawn sigil of the appropriate demon, its name & office).

The text is a facsimile of Crowley's personal copies of the 1904 first edition reproducing the substantial annotations therein. These commence with three pages carrying Gerald Yorke's notes. The Preliminary Invocation or Bornless ritual is given twice. The first reproduces the text from Crowley's vellum bound copy, the second presents the text from Crowley's camel hair bound copy which has a different set of annotations. These will be important for anyone studing the genesis of Liber Samekh. The Introduction has two additional annotated footnotes by Crowley. The text of the Goetia itself, has seven illustrations of Goetic demons by Crowley, plus some additional annotations. There is then a two page list in the hand of Gerald Yorke giving the appearance of the demons from the Bagh-I-Muattar plus Crowley's sources for that material. Finally there are three pages of Enochian Calls in the hand of Leah Hirsig plus a pages reproducing talismans from Crowley's Temple of L.I.L. in Mexico. Crowley's annotations reveal potent A.A. & OTO magickal formulae, which later were given form in the instructions of "Liber Sameckh" & "Liber Pyramidos", and which shed much light on Crowley's later sex magick practices. This very rare edition of this important grimoire, would make a magnificent addition to any Thelemic or occult library.
