Book Porn: Antique Occult Edition

6 Jun

While doing a routine Google of the Enchiridion from Adventure Time (I live a sad life) I found this amazing website that sells antique occult books, i.e. the top fifty books most likely to be cursed of all time).

Look at this Enchiridion! It’s hand coloured! It belonged to a Pope! It also has several handwritten inscriptions, including an invocation written on an extra paper and inserted in the book. It’s so coooooooool.

Look at this cool and practical diagram for making your own magick circle! Don’t try this at home, kids. This is a page from one book from a set of four grimoires. But they’re priced at € 6,000, so au revoir grimoire, I guess.

This is a Major Inquisitor’s manual on Demonology from the year 1578 and I want to casually read it on the tube on the way to work.

This comes from the end pages of ‘Discours et Histoires des Spectres’, published in 1605, the most beautiful copy of the most extensive study on the history of ghosts and Demonology to come out of the period. Just look at this page! Don’t you just want to stroke it? Can’t you feel its demon powers of hypnotism taking hold?!

What’s your favourite book from the website? I bet I’ve missed all the good ones.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone who really knows what they’re discussing over the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More and more people have to look at this and
    understand this side of your story. I was surprised that
    you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with
    SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some
    targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!
