Ltd. Ed. 178/200. According to The Gryphon, this was Acorn’s first published book, which dates it to some time in 1979. From the précis in that journal:
“This book deals with Angelic invokation. Contained therein are the names of the angels, invokations, characters, numbers, talismans, hours and instructions pertaining to ritual tools and preparations of the operator. A fine and complete book from a 17th. century copy with coloured woodcuts. For this book, every effort was made to preserve the magickal flavour of the Art. In fact, the woodcuts were printed at the proper planetary hours. This alone demonstrates the immeasurable virtue of the book.”
