hardback book 200pp, some diagrams, sigils etc. Conventional Victorian design decorated endpapers. Cloth is manufactured by a craftsman who has lectured both the Society of Bookbinders and the Society of Designer Bookbinders about Victorian bookcloth manufacture. This material is made with a traditional starch filling which is more pleasing to touch than modern cloths which are treated with plastic. As with any handmade product, the cloth may have minor irregularities. The text is a complete transcription of manuscript of a practitioner active in Liverpool, England in the late 1850s, his working magical book. He was part of a milieu who generally performed the same perilous ritual, often in the same location, to establish their communication with the spirits (including infernal beings) upon whom they would rely to perform their craft. However, the nature of their practices could vary greatly.
