This is a unique copy of this uncommon guide to the occult. This copy was owned by Alvey "Bob" Wright, a.k.a. "Scorpius." A number of occult symbols, photos and drawings of scorpions, and stickers cover the endmatter, though the text itself is unmarked. Two pornographic images are pasted in, one of them hidden behind a paste-in describing the demon Sorath. A fascinating book that seems to have been quite beloved by its former owner. Good / fair.
