by Herman te Velde
Limited to 500 copies. A FINE CLOTH COPY, Smythe-sewn, bound in sand cloth, blind-embossed cover and spine, with special custom crimson textured end papers. Heavily illustrated with nineteen plates, and 15 additional illustrations en texte. New foreword by Egyptologist Anne Landborg, and includes an updated, extensive bibliography. A great feature of this new edition is a first time English translation of all the important French and German phrases and notes found in the original printing. The Egyptian god, Seth, was the lord of chaos, disorder, and warfare, and often was cast as the magical Trickster in the Egyptian pantheon as he embodied the creative element of violence and disorder within the ordered world. Please see the illustration that accompanies the listing at jdholmes.com where an assemblage of fifteen of the traditional god forms are displayed. This influential text has often been referenced by Egyptologists, Sethians, and magickal practitioners alike, including Aquino and Lavey. 200 pages. Royal octavo.
