Notes:

A series of illustrated monographs (originally known as The Carfax Monographs) exploring Ritual Magic and Hermetic symbolism. Originally issued between 1959 and 1963, and now brought together in book form.

These monographs, with their exquisite illustrations, offer a unique insight into 20th century magic. They also cast light on some of the objects in the Museum's collection, in particular the Enochian Altar, object id. no. 941; and proved invaluable when curators Judith and Peter Hewitt were setting up the Museum's 2018 special exhibition Dew of Heaven: Objects of Ritual Magic.

Number 346 of a limited edition of 777.
