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.
Copies ordered directly from :AJNA: will receive a free letterpressed, debossed standard size bookmark featuring the stamped cloth motive from the book.
STANDING AT THE CROSSROADS
by Peter Hamilton-Giles
Signed and numbered hardcover.
Of 333 copies.
Truth is based on censoring that which might undermine alternative rationales, and so it is with how the existential witch has been accommodated by practitioners as the icon for folk based practices. Typically this stereotypical inclusion has up to now involved the appropriation of the most revered historical opposition to Christian patriarchy i.e. the witch, so that he or she might become a conduit for justifying rationales for qualifying alternative occult belief systems. Challenging the common consensus on engagement, we find Peter Hamilton-Giles in “Standing at the Crossroads: Dialectics of the Witching-Other” addressing ongoing silences embedded within the connectivity being felt towards the existential witch. Appealing to novices and experienced veterans of witchcraft alike this work casts a new light on the conditions informing how we come to embrace the witch.
