Housed in cloth slipcase edged with same marbled paper used for the endpapers. Ltd. Ed. 14/100 copies only. Facsimile reproduction of an original Hockley manuscipt in usual superb S.E.E. style. Collects a number of rituals, giving some a powerful visual form, akin to a Mandala. In the final ritual, a perilous invocation of Oberion, Hockley records the appearance of the spirit in a grotesque form reminiscent of Edvard Munch’s the Scream. This shows Hockley to be an occult artist of a status hitherto unrealised in publications of his work. One wonders if the references to the ritual use of cannabis and opium in Experimentum signal tools that Hockely used. There are magical procedures for causing the destruction of enemies, routing out thievery, the magical protection of places and buildings, magical fascination, fulfilling sexual desire and a perilous invocation of the spirit Oberion. There is a strong folkish element hand in hand with complex ritual. Hockley gives some spells a striking visual forms, akin to Mandala. These, supplemented by a haunting illustration of a grotesque Oberion - reminiscent of Edvard Munch’s the Scream, establish Hockley as an innovative occult artist in ways unseen in previous publications. Throughout he employs calligraphic hands, rather than his usual handwriting, making this a visually impressive volume. 33pp full colour plates reproducing Hockley’s lavishly illustrated manuscript plus 37pp text by Dan Harms giving a brief Introduction, full transcript (Hockley’s calligraphy looks beautiful, but can be hard to read) plus commentary.
