This unique grimoire was published in the year 2000, marking the cusp of the old and the new chiliad. It is the first full grimoire-text to treat specifically and from personal account of the Traditional East Anglian ritual called ‘The Waters of the Moon’: the solitary initiation of the so-called ‘Toad-witch’. The textualisation of this magical process was, in this unique instance, undertaken as an extension of the ritual itself – a perfection of its cycle of arcana to a point of individual crystallisation.
Standard edition: 77 numbered copies, hand-bound in silver stamped black faux leather; 60 pages; back cover bearing the Seal of Sabatraxas. Each copy was accompanied by an envelope containing a card signed by the author and dedicated to the Thrice-Great Clan of Qayin Azhaka, also a hand-written page of a sigillic ‘inner grimoire’, and a small envelope containing a hand-painted talisman made from antique toadskin leather and a single blackthorn.
Special edition: 3 copies only, hand-bound in full black calf-skin, silvered endsheets, front cover inset with a toad’s head and toadskin leather panelling on the rear. Each copy was accompanied by a sealed envelope containing card, talisman, toad bone and thorn.
