The Compleat Witch Illustrated Bibliography Project

Quote:
"For those who don't know, the bibliography to 'The Compleat Witch' is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful books drastically ranging in subject matter."


This project was recently initiated by Reverend Slaughter. With the aid of Reverend Byrd and myself, Reverend Slaughter will post a blog every few days on one of the books listed in the bibliography of "The Compleat Witch". Each blog will contain information on the cited edition, information on other editions/reprints, online resources, front flap/back cover blurbs, and quotes from within the text. The first book up is "Untrodden Fields of Anthropology" by Dr. Jacobus X.

Participation by everyone is encouraged, especially if you happen to have different editions of the books (including foreign language editions) or spot an error on our part in the information provided.

I've been wanting to do this for well over a decade. My initial idea was to produce a book, but the absolutely insane amount of research was too much for me to consider for what would be one strange little nice book.
I've slowly collected a couple of dozen books from the 170 listed in the bibliography, and finally the time was right.
Instead of doing all kinds of research in the solitude and secrecy, and with the ease of blogging and the support of a social network or two, not only can the research be done with the aide of a few enthusiastic Satanic bibliophiles, but the research and production can be accomplished in public, and the few weird aficionados can contribute themselves at a whim, at any stage in the process.
We look to do at least one book a week, but books that we only have very little data on may be pushed out quickly so there will be multiple books in a week.
All in all, the project could go for more than two years, and theoretically it will exist in a way that as new information comes up at any point, it can be added.
At the end of the project, it may or may not be worth compiling it all into a physical book form, but it certainly will be easier and FAR better in this online edition than I could have imagined.

This is quite a major project! Once again, this shows that Satanists are constantly working on something and spend their time productively. It's a pleasure to walk the earth with such people. Thank you!

You've no idea how thrilled I am about this project.

For me, Reverend, you exemplify what an elite individual actually is amidst a sea of mediocrity in this world. I'm always happy to see what you're up to.

We've been moving on and going strong with the title releases; go see what you've been missing.

And here's a little promo photo I took, my Witchy wife modeling. Those are titles from the bibliography in the background.

OOOoooooOOOOOOoooo shocked grin

I LOVE this book! It is essential part of anomalies collection: Bondeson, Mannix, Gould & Pyle, Leroi... and about a thousand books on freakshows. Quite a few curiosities listed in Compleat Witch bibliography!

Here's to the crooked trees. smile

Just a reminder: although we strive to post at least one book per week, keep in mind that those of us working on this project are doing so in our spare time (a scarce commodity) and as the desire strikes. As such, your patience during occasional downtimes is appreciated.

This entry has been updated with new photos and information.

I had the tremendous pleasure of visiting the Countway Medical Library in Boston a couple of weeks ago to peruse their copy of LA FORME HUMAINE - one of the rarest books from The Compleat Witch's bibliography, and only one of two known copies at libraries in the United States. I have updated the blog with a handful of photos, as well as the Table of Contents and dimensions (an approximation, since I neglected to bring a tape measure).

It was a wonderful experience holding and looking through something that is so scarce and obscure, and in such an exclusive environment. Many thanks to the library and its staff.

Be sure to visit the updated blog for more photos!

I've been following this since the beginning, it was very useful to me because I can't acquire most of the titles and I'm not inclined towards downloading pirated content, so it is nice that some of the titles are available online.

I imagine that even non-Satanists can enjoy this project.

Well done Reverend CoffinRust!

You have captured some key points as to why the bibliography is so important to pursue!

You had me at Funeral Customs. grin

That was excellent. I fell in love with this entire project as a whole from the get-go. The "curious bit of niche bibliomania" found a very interested audience in me! The comprehensive, rather delicate dissection of an often-overlooked and yet crucial part of one of the most invaluable books in the lexicon is the very essence of a kind of syntopical total immersion Deep Satanism. It is a meticulous and measured exploration of all of those delicious tangents I carefully transcribed in ze journal so many years ago in the hopes of getting back to them eventually.

Now I was half-resigned to Eventually being a myth, one of those delusions thunked up by pathological procrastinators or afterlifers or one of the lies the less-crazy tell themselves to ease the pain of Not Finishing the To-Dos. But here it is, Eventually, staring me in the face and I get to go back to my practically illegible, painfully awkward longhand list on that slightly faded college ruled paper and... Oh! It's sooo cool.

Slightly aside: I love the very specific thematic boundaries. So many times I run across people who consider themselves collectors but, when asked about their collection, what they have sounds more like a storage unit. Irritatingly haphazard. Like they just couldn't figure out how to go to a library. There's no rhyme nor reason, no organization, no method to the madness, no madness to the method. No character to it, no personality.

I also love the celebration of books. Book-books. Boooooooks. In addition to the meat of each, I love the attention to all the other details. The aesthetics. That's something that not everyone appreciates. The heft, the tactility, the artwork and binding and typography. There's a place for the digital plastic "e" hyphenated word, like when you're getting carpal tunnel trying to slog through that ten pound tome, but it's not a world that us bibliomisfits truly feel at home in. It lacks an element of beauty and intimacy. We need our time with the thing itself. Not just to read it but see it, feel it, smell it, listen to it through the pads of our fingertips. Sit with it like an old friend.

And there's always something a little softly poignant, a little bittersweet about that. I mean, you can't really escape the fact that no matter how well we tend to them books are creatures with a finite lifespan. So there is this very real, very precious, very elegant sense of preservation to the Compleat Witch Bibliography blog that I think deserves a standing ovation.

...But I do hope a compendium of all of the work put forth by everyone involved is published in hard, physical format some day. Because in all unblinking, irony-free, seriousness a book about books -- not just any books, mind you, but these books -- would be awesome in every sense of the word.

And this video is killer. It's got the class and kind of reservation that comes with this kind of cataloging but also a big double shot of cheekiness, a real toast to LaVey's signature hepcat arch wit. It probably goes without saying but I totally dig the dervish, it's perfect. And, you know, at first I thought the quotes were flashing too fast (I'm a slow reader) but I think I prefer it that way because it's such a tease! Talk about showin' a little leg. grin coopdevil

All that to say, Bravo! I can't wait for more! tiki tiki tiki

Thank you all!

And Shade, thank you so much for the eloquent review; you've captured the zeal of the Satanic bibliophile beautifully!

And you're absolutely right about the text moving a bit too fast - that's something I'm going to be more mindful of next time!
