So, I found the question of high prices for occult works so interesting that I wrote up a few long pieces on them. Which I then lost in an iPhone deletion. So, that’s what I’ve been working on.
In the meantime, a few new exciting releases!
First, from Nephilim Press, we have Humberto Maggi’s The Book of St. Cyprian. I haven’t had much of a chance to examine it, but it appears to take material from many different works – mainly the early (pseudo-)autobiographical texts attributed to the saint, as well as the translations of sections from the Spanish and Portuguese grimoire traditions – and assembles it into a composite edition. Given that it’s 600+ pages, I might not get to a full review any time soon, but I wanted to make sure you knew about it.
Enodia is re-issuing the Magia naturalis et innaturalis as a hardback, with additional notes and corrections. I believe the 20% discount for the first orders is gone, but signed copies will still be available if you order quickly.
