¶ The second book issued under the XOANON imprint. Production of this work was undertaken for Xoanon by Fulgur Limited, whose pioneering work in the development of the talismanic book allowed the text to assume a vessel proper and free of the constraints of the first edition of Azoëtia. This special copy was inscribed by Andrew to Hayley Tong, a close friend (and co-founder, along with Gavin Semple and Robert Ansell, of Fulgur Publications).
