ALEX SANDER'S NOTEBOOK with Introduction by Maxine Sanders (Two Volumes, Deluxe edition of 251 copies in slipcase)

250.00

UK: Hell Fire Club Books, 2018. First Edition. Hardcover. Quarto. 2 Volumes. Limited to 251 copies in slipcase, this being No. 25. Bound in dark green toad-effect sangrain from a vintage roll of material produced by the Ratchfords Mill in Manchester in the 1950s. Along with the main volume showing Alex Sander's notebook (details below), a second, cloth-bound volume is included with a complete transcript. Both are housed in a cloth slipcase with sangrain edges. Light bump to corner of the slipcase, otherwise both volumes and slipcase in fine condition.

The notebook contains material reflecting the hereditary witchcraft traditions of Northern England, the rituals and practices of both Gardnerian Wicca and later Alexandrian Witchcraft, as well as the teachings of Aleister Crowleys sexual magick, the ‘Key of Solomon’ and instructions for ritual and spiritual practices culled from surviving lineages of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In Alex’s hand, the notebook is a remarkable fusion of traditional hereditary witchcraft lore and the high magical teachings with which his personal work was so clearly identified. He alone provides a veritable link between the folk magic practices of the cunning-men of previous centuries and the advanced spiritual practices of Abramelin and the Magick of Aleister Crowley. The first page is a traditional Lancashire witches charm with magic symbols. The pages were originally torn by Alex to dispose of them but were salvaged by a disciple, taped together and sewn into a single binding; this was subsequently kept safely hidden by Maxine Sanders in an embroidered linen bag and remains in her personal collection to this day. During his lifetime Alex Sanders was the most visible and influential figure both in the revival of traditional witchcraft as well as the teaching of advanced occultism in the world. After his death he remains not only one of the most enigmatic figures of the twentieth century (having left few traces of published literature behind him) but also perhaps the most prolific of all practical occultists.
