Petit Albert Fine Press Edition: Pre-order Now!


For those of you anxiously awaiting a fine binding edition of one of my many works, the time has come at last; Ouroboros Press (whose works I have seen and highly applaud) is currently in the process of having 1,500 copies of the Petit Albert bound up; pre ordering is currently available, with the edition slated for April.

The Petit Albert requires little introduction; its treatise on the Hand of Glory alone makes it a notorious work; for those less versed in its content, it ranges from the talismanic arts, to a bit of alchemy, to folk remedies, to the extremely strange love and sex ritualism of the 18th century (at one point it suggests a way to literally restore virginity!) A must-have for the occultist, this work echoes beyond its era well into modernity but has not been, to my knowledge, released in anything other than paperback or electronic format prior. Having already released a paperback edition of this work, it was important that something more lasting, more attractive, be created.

As a folkish work the magick here is less about elaborate rituals than about simplistic ones; those interested in black magick will find plenty of lore here for their perusal and those interested in literature itself will find that this particular publisher has produced a number of widely applauded editions in the past; notably the Book of St. Germaine.

  2. Glad to see you are back!. you were born for this!!! I think that you may find a deeper happiness in here than you will anywhere because this is your destiny if destinies exist. If past lives existed I would say you were probably a old successful king in the ancient ages so you speak the language of rulers. but a wise king to interpret it to the masses!!! noble king.

  6. Hey Styx, I am a big fan of yours. I wandered across you on Youtube last Sept. or so. I am 54 years old and am A Computer Numerical Control Programmer. I am originally from Ohio but spent almost 9 years in Albuquerque and am currently living in Utah. I am getting ready to move again due to the oil and gas industry downturn. I also have been an Ebay seller for many years. I notice that you drink that Red Bull stuff. I've never tried it but I have a really nice Red Bull advertising light currently listed on Ebay and I want to give it to you free of charge so you can put it on the shelf behind where you sit when you make your videos. The item number for this light on Ebay is 122579732674 just so you know I'm not some nut job trolling you. My handle on Ebay is bcmanohio (bc stands for beer can) I once had a beer can collection of approx. 20,000. Anyway my friends would get a kick out of seeing that Red Bull light on your videos. If you are interested in it free of charge email me at thecncswami@stratanet.com and I'll end my auction and ship it to you. If not I'll understand but I just really enjoy your videos and respect your style and intelligence. My name is Jim Sproul Vernal, Utah. Don't change a damn thing!
