Fulgur, 2003. Limited edition of 500 copies , this being number 440. Hardback. 

'Without doubt one of the most important works on Spare ever published, this ground-breaking book has deservedly won an enviable reputation in modern occult studies. Out of print for over 20 years, it is offered once again as a facsimile of the original edition. Excerpts from Spare’s Zoetic Grimoire, a biographical essay, a thesis on the magical systems of Zos and many rare illustrations of manuscripts and pictures go to make this work essential reading for all those interested in AOS.

First published in 1975 by Muller, this new offering by Fulgur is limited to 500 copies in this format. Although the original production has a raw and authentic emanation, this freshly produced offering has some superior facets. Modern printing methods have bought a sharper rendering of this intriguing book. However, Spares tails and supernatural experiences remain safely intact. Well read in mysticism and a student of the AA, Spare was also a champion, who defended the animal kingdom and despaired of man's many folly's. While Crowley sought to establish orders and attract followers, Spare focused on building the ZOS Kia Cultus, which was more a state of mind accessible to all. Much of the art work produced here was fabricated in trance and as such offers a way into trance state. The world of Austin Osman Spare is not for the faint hearted and too strong medicine for many.'
