Encyclopedia Of 5000 Spells

Encyclopedia Of 5000 Spells Cover

Book: Encyclopedia Of 5000 Spells by Judika Illes

This is an excellent book for just what it claims to be- an encyclopedia. Very thorough reference, and so much nicer than searching and piecing things together from internet sources. This book is for ages 18 and over only, though I would recommend ages 21 and up.

The author also offers appropriate warning about the hazards of attempting to work with negative or "dark" forces or energy. She also alerts the reader whenever a Poisonous or toxic herb or botanical is called for, and often lists a modern or safer alternative.

The range of spells here is from those requiring no tools at all, to chants, to simple rituals, to candles spells, to herbal spells, to making tailsmans and such, to group rituals. Taking a very inclusive approach, Illes blends wisdom from paths and Traditions both old and modern from around the world.

This book is great for those who are interested in the study in spell craft -- it provides cultural history of the spells and formulas (if possible), as well as material information, and notes when particular ingredients may be substituted or be poisonous.
The author suggests in the beginning that this book is for Reference only and that nothing in this book should be attempted or should any ingredients mentioned be consumed without prior study.

It is exactly what it is titled: an encyclopedia. And it is a great one!

Setono Biblija

Setono Biblija Cover

Book: Setono Biblija by Anton Szandor Lavey

The Satanic Bible was written by Anton LaVey in 1969. It is a collection of essays, Observations and basic Satanic rituals, and outlines LaVey's Satanic ideology. It contains the core Principles of Satanism and is considered the foundation of the philosophy and dogma that constitute Satanism.

Long since removed from contemporary printings of the book, the first edition of The Satanic Bible contained an extensive dedication to the thinkers who influenced LaVey. The primary dedication of the book was made to Bernadino Nogara (misprinted as "Logara"), Karl Haushofer, Rasputin, Sir Basil Zaharoff, Alessandro Cagliostro, Barnabas Saul (Dr. John Dee's first Scryer), Ragnar Redbeard, William Mortensen, Hans Brick, Max Reinhardt, the American Sociologist Orrin Klapp, Fritz Lang, Friedrich Nietzsche, W. C. Fields, P. T. Barnum, Hans Poelzig, Reginald Marsh, Wilhelm Reich and Mark Twain. The secondary dedication included Howard Hughes, Marcello Truzzi, Marilyn Monroe, William Lindsay Gresham, Hugo Zacchini, Jayne Mansfield, Fredrick Goerner, Nathaniel West, Horatio Alger, Robert E. Howard, George Orwell, H. P. Lovecraft, Tuesday Weld, H.G. Wells, Harry Houdini, Togare (LaVey's pet lion) and The Nine Unknown Men.

The Satanic Bible, after the introductions by other authors, is divided into four books: the Book of Satan, the Book of Lucifer, the Book of Belial, and finally the Book of Leviathan. LaVey seems to have taken this hierarchy from The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, in which these four demons serve as the chiefs of Hell. Each book approaches a different aspect of Satanism, and serves a unique purpose within the structure of The Satanic Bible.

Book: The Black Pullet Or The Hen With The Golden Eggs by Medieval Grimoires

The Black Pullet - The Black Pullet is a grimoire that proposes to teach the "science of magical talismans and rings", including the art of necromancy and Kabbalah. It is believed to have been written in the late 18th century, and according to the text, written by an anonymous French officer who served in Napoleon's army.

The French officer manages to survive the attack, being the sole survivor. When an old Turkish man who appears suddenly from the pyramids takes the French officer into a secret apartment within one of the pyramids and nurses him back to health whilst sharing with him the magical teachings from ancient manuscripts that escaped the "burning of Ptolemy's library".
