The Golden Bough by J.G. Frazer (12 Volume Set), Hardcover
$795.00, plus $22 shipping.

An incredible collection of the world’s myths, legends and magical rituals. Frazer spent much of his life researching these interesting primitive customs. His initial impulse was to discover the origins of the search for the Golden Bough from a tree in the Grove of Diana, and spent over 25 years studying primitive customs, rituals, and magic. Rich intellectual anthropology of the old world that once made up much of the British empire. Frazer takes us on a journey from magic and religion to science and back again.

Hardcover with dust jacket, published by Sam Weiser.
$222.66 Good condition, plus $10 shipping.
First page has early Mayflower Bookshop in Ferndale stamp. A highly debated magic book claiming that it let the genie out of the bottle, and modernizing the magic tales of 101 Nights. The worth of the ritual revealed is left to the reader. Aleister Crowley’s students always ask if this book is available. An attempt to explain the secrets of the Ordo Templi Orientis without having to participate in its initiation mysteries. One person quoted W.C Fields about this book: “Stolen pie always tastes sweeter.” A proclaimed forbidden fruit.
