Book Binge

So I've been on a binge lately of Very Expensive But Awesome Wizardly Books.

The requisite Wheelock's Latin and Cassell's Latin Dictionary in hardcover.

A hardcover review copy of Chris Warnock and JMG's collaboration on Books 1 and 2 of Picatrix.

A special-request hardcover copy of Chris Warnock's edition of the Latin Picatrix from Sloane 3679, available from Renaissance Astrology.

And last but not least (so far) the upcoming Golden Hoard edition of the Veritable Key of Solomon. Yes I have low resolution images of the original French manuscript from the Wellcome website itself but there is nothing like holding a good book in your hand and I'm very happy with their edition of The Goetia of Dr. Rudd.

Still itching my palm are Peterson's Grimorium Verum and the PGM as well as Curse Tablets.

And still waiting to fly off my shelf into someone else's waiting hands is my Ouroboros Picatrix Vol 1, nobody seems interested in my asking price so far on eBay, I may see what some local book buyers will offer for it.

I've got the GV here and the PGM and Curse Tablets, but for some reason I'm not that drawn to the Pica. Could be leftover racist tendencies from my Templar days, when I died fighting the Saracens.

When I reference it at all, it's through your translations, which are coming along too slowly, imho. ;-)
