Item Details

The Ancients Book of Magic.

New York: Dorene Publishing, [1940] 1936. Reprint. Staplebound. A popular guide to invocation and the practice of black magic. It clearly draws from a number of sources including Barrett's "The Magus," the "Goetia." According to the copyright page the book was first published in 1936, and this edition by Dorene Publishing Co. is copyright 1940. The paper type, binding, etc. would suggest that it probably dates from then (1940), not unlike many of the 'pulp magic' books produced at this time. Very Good+ in Wraps. Bleedthrough, rusty staples, some wear on spine, upper bent corner, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Staplebound in original pink and black wrappers. 8vo. 183pp. Illus. (b/w plates). Item #10285

Price: $100.00
