This was not commercially available. The only other examples of this book on sale costs £3000.00!
Very few of these books exist. Only 23 leather-bound copies are known and I have 2 of them. This is the "66-exemplars" edition. 66 were planned but the firm had troubles during the printing and it's not known whether more than a handful were printed and bound by Salamander & Sons. The firm's website stated that their last 2 deluxe books, one of which is this book, failed and were not produced. So this is quite a gem! It's number is 23
Ceremonial magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is among the most widely practiced of all magical systems today. Yet very few books on the Golden Dawn tradition pass beyond the basics into the more demanding and powerful magical practices the system has to offer. Circles of Power is the exception. It's a comprehensive practical manual of Golden Dawn magic that proceeds step by step from basic principles and fundamental rituals to the heights and depths of magical attainment.Circles of Power provides detailed instructions for such rarely discussed magical techniques as the creation of telesmatic images, the construction and use of flashing tablets, the Golden Dawn method of etheric shapeshifting, and the use of the Formula of the Equinox--one of the two fundamental ritual formulas of the Golden Dawn tradition--as a basis for rituals of evocation, consecration, spiritual development, and more. This new edition has been thoroughly revised by the author.
