LUX HAERESIS. The Light Heretical.

First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. One of an undisclosed number (but seemingly eighteen) 'X' copies comprising press sheets bound in grey cloth, enumerated and marked by the author. Silver titles to the spine. Housed in a black slipcase with a silver motif to both boards. Illustrated throughout with black and white drawings by the author. A fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean and bright throughout and without previous owners' stamps or inscriptions. The slipcase is in fine condition. Rare in this form.

Inscribed by Daniel A. Schulke (using his magical persona Akarais vel Stheno) in black ink facing the limitation page "Sign of the Watchers, / Thou Art Conjur'd as / The Union of Earth and Sky / In the Words: / Gahat-Aya-Rinna / The World-field is sown / And the Radiant Vessels Fill'd. / So Saith I, / Akarais vel Stheno". The limitation page is marked "3X18", which we take to mean number 3 of 18 'X' copies. An esoteric text on the forms and functions of the Witch's Eye within the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. Lux Haeresis, being the first of a two-volume work entitled GAMMAEAS, concerns the Arcana of the Witch's Eye and its mutual interaction with Sentient Luminosity. Treating the twin mysteria of Ocular Malediction (the so-called Evil Eye), and Seership or 'The Sight', the book proceeds beyond this duality unto the realm of Telaesthesis –the unique perceptual modalities of the Witches' Sabbath, grand abberator of the sensorial field. Explored in detail is the magical relation between Hand and Eye, the Body of Void, and the vivification of the Magical Image. As a magico-poetic cartography of the illuminant metaphysic present in the folkloric strata of traditional witchcraft, The Light Heretical serves as both homage and grimoire to its Luciferan arcana.
