Book Reviews, Faust's Threefold Coercion of Hell

I’ve been asked to share my insights concerning Faust’s Threefold Coercion of Hell. This inspired me to write my first book review for the website:

faust_grimoire Dr. Johannes Faust’s Threefold Coercion of Hell, also called Cabalae nigrae, Magiae naturalis et innaturalis – first published in Passau 1505, the present version was published by Scheible, Stuttgart 1849 and republished by Verlag Geheimes Wissen in 2008. Renown for its rich illustrations, the book is essentially a black-magical grimoire dedicated to the advanced kabbalist, who is instructed in the arte of coercing, binding and making obedient the various spirits and demons. The book is also known as The Black Raven, perhaps in reference to its title page, which shows a black corvid inside a circle.

The main motif of the book is the “Harrowing of Hell”, the descent of Christ into hell, which is re-enacted by the practitioner. The spirits, such as Aciel, Anael and the tutelary Mephistophiel/ Mephistophiles, are illustrated in full color and their peculiarities pertaining to their different appearances and modes of calling and commanding are described in detail. In addition are given countless sigils for the spirits and circles, typically colored in black and red (a trademark of this book). The spirits are in fact demons, or fallen angels… read more

At the same time I wish to introduce a new website section for book reviews. I am composing the reviews focussing on the content and cultural context and placing emphasis on the peculiarities of each work. I will also try to provide background info on the author’s, when available. If you have written a review or suggestions for titles to add, please share in the comments or write an e-mail to info@teufelskunst.com and I may link them here.

New Secondhand Literature

All above titles ship from Germany. The prices are without shipping costs or paypal fees. The shipping costs are charged seperately, depending on weight and destination country and are added to the final price.

How it works: if you are interested in one or several books listed here write an e-mail to info@teufelskunst.com and I will forward your request to the seller. The seller gets back to your request if the book(s) you want are still available. You pay the price for the book(s) + shipping costs to the seller. Please consider also that you may have to bear any extra costs such as paypal fees and currency conversion fees.

Both books ship from Germany. Shipping costs and paypal fees are not included in the price and charged etxra. Contact info@teufelskunst.com if interested.


Note to sellers: As I am receiving a growing amount of requests from people who wish to resell esoteric books, I will from now on charge a 5% fee on second hand literature sales. Included in this fee is the work of presenting the items online 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 5 years or less should not be sold as expensive as a book which may have been out of print for decades. I may also reject works by authors that are not in harmony with my stances and modus operandi. In those cases I recommend you use other platforms.
Btw. I 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., old herbals as well as out of print art books and illustrated children’s books.
REVIEWS
You have written a review, commentary or essay on a favorite book, author/artist or piece of art of yours? Note me with a link or excerpt and I may add it to the site. In the future I  may also present here reviews of books which are of special relevance to my craft.
