Forthcoming: A Collection of Magical Secrets

I stumbled across the following notice on the Avalonia Books website as a release during the next few months:

A Collection of Magical Secrets
By Peter De Abano, Cornelius Agrippa and other celebrated philosophers

Edited by David Rankine; Foreword by Stephen Skinner
Other material bound with one of the manuscripts used in the Veritable Key of Solomon, the first new Key of Solomon material to be published in more than a hundred years. This material was not included in the Veritable Key of Solomon as it is non-Solomonic in nature. Text translated from the original french by Paul Harry Barron.

ISBN: 978-1-905297-20-7

This sounds intriguing, though the list of authors suggests that this is mainly a reprint of material from the Heptameron and Fourth Book of Occult PhilosophyRankine’s blog indicates that it also includes a method for invoking planetary angels to provide a dream-vision, so we can hope more previously-unpublished gems of this sort will show up.  I’ll see what I can find out.

Also, my hardcover Veritable Key is being shipped from Malaysia, so it might be a little longer in arriving than usual.
