The Book of Forbidden Knowledge: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Book of Forbidden Knowledge should in no way be judged based on its era and type of manufacture. A simple paperback released at the dawn of the 20th century, it's really more of a modern grimoire influenced by the Oracle/Napoleonic tradition than it is a hand guide of trickery typical of that late Victorian age.
Covering charms, talismans, fortune telling, prognostication,...

Upcoming Materials, and Blog Announcementby Styxhexenhammer666In the near future, Basil Valentines' "Twelve Keys" will be available- this alchemical work of note is quite good, and in keeping with the original edition I have omitted the attractive but largely superfluous illustrations present in latter printings. Add to this Philalethes' work, which is available hereand things are moving along quite smoothly. I haven't forgotten about Sickness In Hell...
De Septem Secundeis: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Based on what I've read of Trithemius' work, he deserves to be celebrated far more than most may give him credit for. Known predominantly for Steganographia he also penned two other works of note; the Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals (which I intend to edit and release) and this work, De Septem Secundeis which is an almost stereotypically Da-Vinci style prophetic work of sorts...
Enchiridion of Pope Leo III: The Grimoire of Pope Leoby Styxhexenhammer666
Somehow I managed to complete the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III without actually posting here about it being done; I have no idea how I overlooked it- perhaps I was drinking a bit of wine when I finished uploading it. I could have sworn I posted an entry but was wrong.
The work itself is quite good; I refined the original illustrations here because they were nowhere present in a quality...
Coming Soon: Liber Salomonisby Styxhexenhammer666I am now three quarters of the way through editing the (extremely antiquated) Liber Salomonis; a Hermetic era compilation of treatises masquerading as a Kabbalistic work from the times of Solomon or (as the text claims) even the times of Adam under the name "Sepher Raziel." I have already discussed in brief the obviously falsifiable claim of its ancient origin, but as a purely European text merely...
The Philosophical Merlin: Available Now on Amazonby Styxhexenhammer666The second of the second slew of grimoire editions is finally here; the Philosophical Merlin, produced originally in 1822 in what was then the rising British Empire.
The book(let) itself was mostly overlooked in its time period, overshadowed by numerous French cycle grimoires (The Black Pullet comes from the same time period) and thus attempted to market itself by claiming Napoleonic...
