ORIGINAL ARTWORK

 

 

Andrew Chumbley,  Founder of the Cultus Sabbati, a modern manifestation of the witchcraft.

 

 

 

 

Manifestation of Famulus

 

 

 

 

 

Pen and ink on folded sheet of paper. 8 inches x 6 inches. Signed using magical name "Alogos". The word "Famulus" is defined as "a servant or slave, especially of a servant or magician". Of this image, Andrew wrote:-

 

The body in ritual becomes the primary object, role and space of ritual. The hand in magical aesthesis becomes the ritualist. If bound by cord till devoid of sense and used as a vessel for daimonic evocation, the hand becomes a new thing. The cord loosed permits the magician's senses to commingle with the indwelling daimon and the process of expression may begin. Alongside oneiric inspiration, automatism, obsessional self-projection, sigillation, this technique forms part of the artist-magician's repertoire. The compositions are the shed skins of the process, the actuality of the artistry is the operator, who, in passing through all things, is transformed and is made knowing.

The present image shows a spirit converging on a point in a dream landscape, alongside the convergence of sigils to a point of being.

 

 

The detail is extraordinary, as shown by these expanded views showing, in each instance, about a single square inch of the drawing

 

    

 

 

 

The title is inscribed in pencil by artist on the reverse:-

 

 

The are some very slight and unobtrusive creases (exaggerated in the image).  Order Ref. 122-01  £2250

Grand Sidereal Congrusses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Andrew's inscription on reverse.

 

 

 

 

 

COPY OF DRAWING made by the artist and signed by him on reverse. 42cms x 28cms. The deliberately unfamiliar term "congrusses" is Latin for "congress" and has the same ambiguity, meaning both assembly, as in the "Grand Sabbat", as well as sexual intercourse. “Sidereal” literally means "of the stars" though the nature of the drawing suggests the artist uses the word in the additional sense that Austin Osman Spare did when referring to his "Sidereal Portraits", meaning an intersection of viewpoints, suggesting an intermutation of levels or dimensions, particularly the astral and the mundane. Spare suggested this by portraying a distorted face that takes on a conventional form when the viewer looks at it from an extreme angle (a process which reminds us that the magician's exhortations for a spirit to appear in comely form - which may require the conjurer to achieve a special state, as much as the spirit). Chumbley's tack is very different. Tentacles of organic form, ambivalently animal or plant, but certainly living reach up through a fractured plane, casting shadows into other dimensions, indicated by geometrical lines suggesting folds.

This facsimile passed from the artist to Robert Fitzgerald, a prominent member of the Cultus Sabbati, who has had writings published by Xoanon and Three Hands Press. Thence, it was given to a witch after she met the artist in 2004ev and commenced a year of practice as given to potential members of the Cultus, to determine if they belonged. In due course, the witch realised the Cultus was not for her. It relates to the Rite of the Opposer, which is given in Qutub, whereby the practitioner undertakes to sacrifice everything to the Other, the Shadow Self, so as the transcend the Abyss. The Rite of the Opposer may use stellar analogues to the Self and the Shadow, namely the Pole-star and the Dog-star reminding us that the traditional usage of the term "Sidereal" - "of the stars" - also applies.

This authorised copy, made and supplied by the artist for framing has a striking provenance which reveals much about the operation of the Cultus Sabbati in Andrew’s day.    Order Ref. 122-02  £275

Roberto Milusic Migliussi, was the founder of the influential underground magazine Idola Tribus in Italy in the 1980's. He has done much to bring the work of English language occultists to the attention of the Italian speakers, publishing translations of Austin Osman Spare, Kenneth Grant, Gavin Semple, Zivorad Mihajlovic Slavinski (who worked with Bertiaux and about whom Grant writes about at length in Beyond the Mauve Zone) and numerous other occultists. He has also promoted the work of Michael Bertiaux, the Ecclesia Gnostica Alba (an offshoot of the  Ecclesia Gnostica Spiritualis, the Gnostic church founded by Bertaiux) and the Esoteric Order of Dagon.

 

It seems reasonable to see in the finished drawing entities, demons bringing ideas and possibilities, appear before a linear flux. The entities are born of the extensive work with automatic drawings represented by the sketch book.

Sketchbook, July 2011, card covers 28cm x 21cm, spiral binding with 100pp all with automatic drawings. The intent was to concentrate upon the technique, so the mind falls into the appropriate altered state, allowing the pen and paper to become vehicle for uncovering the inner wellhead of creative ideas and insights. It is a way to deal with the inner demons that manifest in the shapes the pen describes upon the paper, allowing them to appear and bring new opportunities into the life of the artist.

Austin Osman Spare - Property of a Gentleman

 

 

Spare’s Cave, Boro, pen, ink and watercolour,  9cm x 14cm initials featuring as a design component in picture. Spare had an understandable fascination with stalagmite and stalactite formations, and drew them from pictures in books. He clearly felt real affinity for this one. It is probably in, or near, Boro or Borough an area of New South Wales, Australia that is near a number of world famous limestone caves. None seem to be now known as “Spare’s Cave” but names of sites can change. Or perhaps he imagined it so, as he drew the very phallic stalagmite bearing his initials. His personal identification with the image and the initials featuring as a component of the view, makes this Spare cave picture special and it provokes thought concerning the significance of stalagmites for Spare generally. Circa 1926, judging by the form of the initials.   Circa 1926, judging by the form of the initials.  Provenance (to best memory of present owner) Geraldine Beskine, Atlantis Books.  Order Ref. 122-14  £1100

“Postcard 1” Pencil (both sides) on card, approx. 14cm x 9cm. The form of the females nudes are typically Sparian and one sits in exhibitionist pose, there are hints of something in front of her. Perhaps close ups of the artist’s fingers? If so, if begs the question to what end? As if, from a distance, gently parting the lips of her sex with two fingers from his right hand that are steadied by a finger from his left.   Provenance: from Dennis Bardens through Tom Symonds (the son of John Symonds, Crowley’s biographer).   Order Ref. 122-15  £750

To Show the remembrance and to Bring the Friendship of Austin Osman Spare, pen, ink and watercolour on postcard approx. 14cm x 9cm. Addressed to Millicent Paine it is sent from 56A Walworth Road, the studio where Spare resided, and exhibited, from 1936 until 1941 when Hitler destroyed it with a bomb. Millicent Paine was and old friend of Spare’s, they knew each other in their schooldays and she had “walked out” with his brother when they were young. She had found the Walworth Road studio for him when she was working for an estate agent. The destruction of his studio was a disaster for Spare. He lost all his possessions and lived off charity in doss houses for awhile. Millicent took him in at 5 Wynne Road and he worked in the basement and took on the lease. This is clearly and artistic spell to reinforce their friendship, a sigilistic self portrait, his signature incorporated into his hair, morphing into organic growth with an aura of vibrationary energy kin to his vibrationary portraits. The many creases to the card can be seen in the images.  Order Ref. 122-17   £1760

BOOKS

 

 

Anon., Grimoire of the Spirit of the Place, Society of Esoteric Endeavour 2007, 1st Edition, large format (10½ ins x  7 ins) 20pp. Numbered limited edition of 80 copies, this being copy No. 61 Large format 13ins x 9ins, padded boards, pigskin leather label, linen cover secured with pigskin leather ties. The original manuscript was penned in French in the late 18th Century. It seems to describe a ritual that the writer carried out. Protection is sought from a demonic Trinity before Christian powers are used to evoke an infernal spirit, specially associated with the place of the working, into a piglet that is led into a magic circle where it is slain. This releases the spirit but it he is constrained within the circle until he signs the Grimoire of the title, which has been prepared according to certain specifications.  The book is then treated like a child, being baptised with a godparent present and so forth. The text states that if you are in possession of the original Grimoire “..or one like it” then you do not have to perform the complete ritual but just read out the conjurations. The original spirit will then send one of his minions to assist you. For this reason this the physical manifestation of this, the first ever edition, is guided by the specifications given in the text, being 20 leaves, bound in shot taffeta (which shimmers in different colours) and wrapped in a cross shaped piece of linen.  Fine  Order Ref. 122-18 £750

 

 

Anon. (attributed Dr. Johann Faust), Praxis Magica Faustiana, Society of Esoteric Endeavour 2011.  Numbered limited edition of 180 copies. Limp covers in glassene dustwrapper (38pp) printed in black and red on 160gsm laid paper, silk place ribbon. This text was published as a series of 11 lithographs of text and illustration in the middle of the 19th Century in a collection of chapbooks, fairy tales and other popular miraculous literature.  The commentary addresses the significance of the illustrations. They enunciate a surprisingly sophisticated magical philosophy, more easily described than categorised. Christian powers of Light are utilised to control Lucifer (the light bearer) who is followed by his dark counterpart Mephistophiles (Greek for “Not-light-lover”) who is the terrifying other who can negate the ego of the practitioner.

Andrew Chumbley, Azoetia, Xoanon 2002 Hardback ix + 365pp Illustrated. Copy number 167 of 484.  The standard Sethos edition in green cloth. The author sought expression for the British Traditional Witchcraft into which he had been initiated. Oaths of secrecy forbade blatant description of the Cunning-craft so he drew with insight, upon Ancient Egyptian mythology, Gnosticism, alchemy, tradtional sorcery, Masonic symbolism, tantra and the work of Austin Osman Spare to generate a vehicle for its mysteries. These are enshrouded in a cogent and coherent system of Sabbatic ritual and sorcery, encompassed by a magical alphabet, that can be utilised for both spellcraft and the gnosis  Fine     Order Ref. 122-22    £350

Andrew Chumbley, The Satyr's Sermon, By the Hand and Eye of Alogos, Xoanon 2009, Standard edition limited to 333 hand numbered copies, this being copy No. 226. Small landscape format (3.25ins x 6ins) 84pp Printed in three colours by letterpress (ie old fashioned type or plates pressing wet ink onto the paper – considered the best form of printing, but so very rarely done nowadays). Black endpapers. Quarter leather binding with blocked design on front board and gilt blocked title and raised bands on spine. The goatskin leather is richly textured. It is contained in a well-made cloth bound slipcase. The text was written in early 2004 as one of the series of Monadic Transmission grimoires, each being a hand written manuscript book enclosed with talismanic objects in a wooden box. Some were passed by the author to trusted associates and some were sent out into the Universe, the author deliberately taking no role in deciding their destination, like a seed cast into the wind, to see where they might land. This was one of the latter, which found its way back to the Cultus Sabbati to be issued in this limited edition by Xoanon. The text consists of two sets of Aphorisms with accompanying coloured sigils, the first set being titled "The 13 Maxims of the Brothel", the second "The Virgin's Gift, also Called Virtues Higher than Morals". The themes are decidedly sexual and the result is a truly fine example of Andrew's artwork and poetry elegant presented in a manner entirely sympathetic to the original.

Payment can be made in any of the following ways:-

 

1) Payment through PayPal at http://www.paypal.com/, my user names

are my email address:- ben@caduceusbooks.com or ben@cadu.demon.co.uk

Many people find this the most convenient form of payment

 

2) Credit card (Mastercard, Access or Visa) or Debit Card (Switch or Solo). Please note that I do also need the security code (the three digits on the reverse of the card) and the address to which the card is registered. For security reasons some people like to send their number in the following ways:--

a) By fax

b) Telephone (there is an answering machine to which only I have access when I am not here)

c) Divide it into two and send it in two separate email messages.

d) Encode it. I would suggest leaving the first four digits unchanged but for the remaining digits and security code add 3 to each digit (ie 1 becomes 4, 7 becomes 0, 9 becomes 2 etc) leaving the expiry date unchanged. This arrangement can be referred to as "YOUR CODE"

e) Spell some of the numbers out eg 44six8 etc

 

3) International Money Order made out in British Currency

 

4) Foreign cash small amounts please send securely, large amounts please send by registered post.

 

5) Direct transfer to my bank. Please email me for my bank details.
