Nephilim Press, 2016. First edition. While digging through a dozen manuscripts from the court of Alfonso X of Castile and his school of occult and learned translators I happened upon this volume entitled Pactum: The Masterpiece of Ancient Sorcery. The volume intrigued me, as it fit perfectly in with the genre called “Books of Secrets”, that is manuals of working practitioners with practical instructions for magically achieving specific ends. Because the volume deals heavily with natural, sympathetic and low magick, I enlisted the aid of Cat Work, a friend and contemporary who is the days foremost authority in this field, and together we have taken a never before published Manuscript and breathed into it new life; first offering a translation thereof, then a breakdown of how the rites therein can be readily executed, and finally including a comprehensive education in the sort of Magick this text espouses. What results is both a valuable publication of a historical work on Magic and a complete course teaching the reader from A to Z how to practice the arte thereof in the modern era. Cloth bound in fine condition with marking ribbon. Item #22743
Limited editio of 525 pages; Introductions by Jason Miller and Rufus Opus; 238 pages.
