Forthcoming from Avalonia: The Complete Grimoire of Pope Honorius

Avalonia Books has now opened pre-orders for The Complete Grimoire of Pope Honorius:

The Complete Grimoire of Pope Honorius contains material translated from all four of the different French editions of the Grimoire of Pope Honorius, including the complete text of one manuscript version never before seen in English (Wellcome 4666), and a new translation of the later corrupted German version of 1845. All of the material and its variations found in the five different editions of the Grimoire of Pope Honorius is contained in this work, presenting the entire corpus of this grimoire in print for the first time.  In addition to tracing much of the material to sources such as the Heptameron, the works of Agrippa and earlier religious texts for the first time, the derivation of much of the material into later grimoires including the Grimorium Verum, the Grand Grimoire/Red Dragon and the Black Dragon is clearly demonstrated.

For those who are wondering, the Trident Books edition included only the German text.  The only other English partial translations I can recall are the material in Waite’s Book of Ceremonial Magic and Caduceus Book’s Magic Secrets of Guidon.  I can say, given the amount of wear the previous Avalonia release of Arthur Gauntlet received, I’ll be ordering the hardcover of this one.
