My Next Project

Given that I’ve announced it elsewhere, I might as well divulge it here.

I’m working on an edition of Bodleian Library’s manuscript e Musaeo 173.  e Mus. 173 is a short collection of magical operations, shorter than, but very much in line with, the magical miscellany published in The Book of Oberon.  It passed through the hands of Thomas Allen, a mathematician, astrologer, Catholic sympathizer, and purported magician of Oxford’s Gloucester Hall before being donated to the library.

The contracts are signed with Llewellyn, and James Clark is on board as our illustrator.

Right now, I’ve transcribed the document, modernized the English text, and inserted the red text.  I’m about halfway through an initial rough translation of the Latin text, which makes up a quarter of the manuscript.

The manuscript is due in a year, and I intend to put it to good use.

Please leave any questions or comments below.
