All books are sold as shown. If you are interested contact us at info@teufelskunst.com and we forward you the seller details.

NOTE: As we are receiving a growing amount of requests from people who wish to sell their esoteric books (and not seldom especially expensive limited editions), we will from now on charge a 5% fee on second hand literature sales. Included in this fee is the work of presenting the items and putting potential buyers in touch with sellers. The fee is charged only if an item is sold.

When you calculate prices for books that are out of print or were limited to a certain number of copies, bear in mind that books, which have been around for merely 5 years or less should not be sold as expensive as a book which may have been out of print for decades. Otherwise we recommend you to try your luck on Ebay or some other forum.

Btw. we would very much welcome to expand the range towards classical literature, e.g. old and interesting or fancy editions of classics such as Don Quijote, Faust etc. as well as out of print art books and beautifully illustrated children’s books in different languages.

Aconite Info

A new Info Page on Aconite has been added to the Website along with a PDF for download

Aconite

Family: Ranunculaceae

Genus: Aconitum

Related genera: Anemone, Aquilegia, Delphinium, Helleborus, Pulsatilla, Ranunculus

The poisonous plant genus Aconitum consists of at least a hundred different species and has an array of legends and folklore attributed to it.

Sometimes called ‘Queen of Poisons’ or ‘Plant Arsenic’, similar to how arsenic is considered a ‘King of Poisons’.

A distinction sometimes found concerns the names Monkshood and Wolfsbane. Some argue the original Wolfsbane is the white or yellow-flowered species Aconitum lycoctonum whereas the blue flowering Monkshood, Aconitum napellus is probably the better known of the two species and it is frequently found in medieval monastery gardens. The two species contain different poisons, which are however similar in effect.

Mythology and History

The Greek word akónitos is composed of ak = pointed and kônos = cone, an akon being a dart or javelin, perhaps a reference to the use as an arrow poison. Theophrastus suggests the name derived from the town of Aconæ (today assumed to be near Karadeniz Ereğli in Turkey). It may also have been named after Mount Akonitos in Pontus (Asia Minor), where the plant is said to have grown from the spittle of Cerberus, the three-headed watchdog of Hades, when the folkhero Heracles drew up the beast from his infernal abode. Homer (800 bc) gives the first account of this myth in the Illiad. Eight centuries later Ovid embellishes the story in Metamorphoses VII Continue reading Aconite Info

High John the Conqueror Root

IMG_5488++

High John the Conqueror is a legendary folk hero of Afro-American traditions. He represents freedom, strength, sovereignity and above all cunning. It is believed that by rubbing the root named after him his spirit can be contacted and petitioned for help in different matters concerning the struggle for a better life, love, wealth and good luck in gambling. The root is said to come from a species of Morning Glory (Ipomoea), either Ipomoea jalapa or Ipomoea purga. They are usually round or egg-shaped, of a dark brown color and have a shrivelled surface (because of this they have been compared to the balls of dark-skinned men). The root plays an important roll in many lines of Afro-American folk magic and often greater value is placed on the shape of such root than on its size or weight. When used in spellwork, the root must be whole and sustained with libations of alcohol, anointed with oils or offered tobacco (as if you would be giving these offerings to the actual folk hero).

The roots offered here come from an established American supplier. I have been thinking long whether to take them into the Teufelskunst store and finally decided yes, they definitely belong here too! Some of these I am making into charms wrapped in red silk, together with Devil’s Shoestring root. They can also be bought single by those who wish to make their own charms or use them for magical oils. Sometimes also a pair of two equal looking roots is used. Above is a photo of all High John the Conqueror roots currently available (prices for single roots, root pairs and vials as given).

PS: I am still waiting for the photos of the English Easter Yew Wands. I appologize to those who had already reserved one. Photos may come by the end of the month (when the wands have been resurrected from their graves).

Easter Yew Wands (of Harrowing and Hallowing)

575812_571774319513709_2124106052_n++++

Devil thy name, Trickster at the Crossroads of Midnight
Come forth, Corpse-pale Eidolon of the Osseous Field
Ever-poised in thy Goat-black Cowl that shrouds Mortality,
Master of the Passage ‘twixt Wax & Wane do I seek.
Thirteen times Widders around the Tree do I turn
Here, sheltered ‘neath the boughs of your Faithful Kin:
The Cypress and the Yew, I do lay the Furrow of Mortality
Wherein the Maw of Void makes sweet the promise of Annihilation
And sundry veils rent so rouse the Blessing of Certain Death.

Saviour thy name, Leveller at the Cross of Midday
Convoke here, Golden-toned Christ of the Paradise Found
Ever-steady in meagre Lamb-white Fleece that cloths Eternity,
King of the Pathway of Virture & Vice do I hunt.
Thrice times halved ‘til the 3rd day the loaf do I break
Here, knelt ‘neath the married beams of the Rood:
Transference & Transcendence, I do raise the Ridge of Eternity
Wherein the Gates of Heaven make bitter the dreams of Man
And all sinful debts settled so pay the Boon of Life Eternal.

862068_568524949838646_1064131472_n++     299160_571774222847052_1187357661_n+

13 Wands, harvested from 13 old Yew trees on the Midnight leading into Good Friday, under the light of the waning moon. Due payments of libation, bread and blood have been served to the guardian of the ghoulish yet immensely beautiful trees. For three days and nights the bread is being broken to them and their wood prepared. Each wand is then  cleansed in the waters of the sacred Heathen Spring of Avalon. Finally braids taken from the red cloth of the crucifix put out on the Good Friday and the white cloth draped over the cross to symbolise the resurrection on Sunday are bound around them.

The wands are not carved or varnished and can be crafted and shaped further by those who do not have access to this special type of Olde Yew wood from trees, which have been guarding the graves and crossroads of life and death for centuries. There are alltogether 10 wands available for sale:

  • 5 wands with a braid of 2 red 1 white – the Wands of Harrowing
  • 5 wands with a braid of 2 white 1 red – the Wands of Hallowing

Attached to the end of each wand is also one tail-feather of a Raven, the Prophet of Man and the Oracle of Hades, gathered through a beautiful specimen found during a sojourn in the Forest, a gift from the Sylvan Realm. A satchel of Yew needles and bark will accompany each wand, with a hand-numbered label.

*

The Yew is the Man in Black at the Crossroads, the Patron of the Souls kept in She’ol and also of the Ancestors. It is also the tree of Dark Resurrection and thus sometimes the Man in Black is viewed crucified to a Yew arbor.

The wands are a kind offer by woodwose, wanderer, sorcerer, word cunner and friend Ash Nostro Morg.

Info, pictures and prices will follow after Easter. Only one wand per customer.
