Magickal Childe Advertisement

Oh yeah.  I was supposed to post something, wasn’t I?  Let’s see.

One item I was able to examine more closely at the NYPL was an advertisement from the Warlock Shop back in 1973, when Simon was just getting his start.  There’s a number of interesting nuggets of information in there that I’ve mined for my paper, so I thought I’d let you have a go at it as well.

This was a large, full-page ad for the shop, so I’ve had to split the images into two parts.  WordPress’ thumbnail function won’t work unless a file is small enough (which defeats the whole point), so I’ll just link to them here and here.

I’ll be at conferences for about a week, so I’ll blog when I get the chance.   Later!

  3. […] First Books Sharp-eyed readers of the Warlock Shop book ad noticed two curious books by “Levenda” listed there – Book of Runes and Magickal […]
