Boston MA/York Beach, ME: Weiser Books, 2003. First Edition Thus - Second Printing. Softcover. Small thick quarto. xvi + 480pp. Index. B/w illustrations. A revised edition of this important modern translation which was originally published in very different form in the Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks series. Adam McLean observed "'The Mysteriorum Libri Quinti' manuscript has been much quoted from during the last few years, however esotericists and scholars have till now not had available the complete text in print. Joseph Peterson has diligently prepared this edition transcribing the difficult handwritten text, and provides an introduction, summarised contents of the Five Books, an Index Verborum to the Angelic words in the text, and an extremely useful Index to the text itself." This new edition has numerous added explanatory footnotes, translations of Latin passages, an expanded Introduction and Index, and supplemental material from Dee's diary and other manuscripts. A significant contribution to Dee studies. Just a little light shelf wear and dust on fore-edge, else appears unread, thus a tight, clean near Fine copy. Additional shipping may apply due to the size and weight of the volume. Item #63424
