|INTRODUCTION TO COVEN OF THE SCALES
"It should be understood that although Bob [Clay-Egerton] firmly held the philosophy and opinion that all faiths were One and all Paths led to the same Goal, he did not advocate what is now referred to as 'eclectic paganism'. What he did teach was the desire for knowledge and experience, regardless of source. Each new experience was, however, studied within the confines of that particular religion, path or tradition. Each new discipline was kept completely separate from each other. It was only when a student had a thorough understanding of the tenets of each discipline were they encouraged to formulate them into their own individual system." Coven of the Scales: The collected writings of A R Clay-Egerton, compiled by Melusine Draco.
|After 18 years as one of the UK's leading publishers of serious books in the metaphysical genre - particularly the Egyptian Mystery Tradition and traditional British Old Craft - ignotus press has now formally retired. Gone, but not forgotten, the name now has a new incarnation in the USA in electronics technology! Coven of the Scales will, however, continue to offer a limited selection of the most popular titles until stocks run out, in addition to administering the ARCANUM and TEMPLE OF KHEM distance learning courses.
We are also proud that some of the ignotus press authors (including Melusine Draco and Alan Richardson) have had books accepted by international publishers, so that the high calibre of their magical writing can be appreciated by a much wider readership.
