NEWS & NOTES
June 23th - We know we have been quiet for a while, but hope to make up for it now. For those of you who have been watching for our next catalogue - Catalogue # 272 - is now posted and features books in all areas of the study of Hermetica. Also, check out our "Featured Books" and "New Arrivals" today for some other new/used offerings.
We are very pleased to announce the new Teitan Press softcover edition of "The Art of Rosaleen Norton" which was inspired by her recent surge in popularity world-wide. Also, by Erica M and Jerry Cornelius, the first softcover edition of "The Scarlet Woman and the Ancient Mercurial Serpent, and other essays", limited to 111 copies. Last but not least, from our friends at Scarlet Imprint, the second edition of Jake Stratton-Kent's: "The True Grimoire, Encyclopedia Goetica - Volume 1", limited and hand-numbered. In our "New Arrivals" you will find a small selection of recently acquired books, a few not seen here for some time.
Like so many others, we have had a year full of difficult events - not least the reconstructive foot surgery that Marilyn had in May - which has slowed her and everything else down, and the effects of which will likely continue at least through the summer. Despite that, we are keeping up with the world of Occult books. We apologize for the occasional delays in responses to orders and inquiries that inevitably occur at such times. We assure you - we are still here and you are not forgotten. We would like to hear from you if there is a problem or question.
On that note, while we appreciate our friends and customers - we cannot respond to the almost daily calls and/or emails requesting appraisals and valuations for privately owned books and/or ephemera. Our time is short every day, and pricing books that are not ours is something we don't have the leisure for - we wish we did!
