Edinburgh, Scotland: Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks, 1980. Second Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. x + 110 pp. Hand-bound in brown faux leather, b&w frontispiece and illustrations, fold-out reduced-size magical calendar diagram at rear. The second edition of the first work in McLean's ground-breaking "Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks" series. "The Magical Calendar," designed by the great engraver, goldsmith and publisher Theodorus de Bry (1528-1598) is a comprehensive table of magical correspondences, said to rank amongst the most important esoteric documents of the late Renaissance. This edition comprises the illustrations, text, and translations, along with a Preface, Commentary and Notes, in which Adam McLean guides the reader through the sometimes convoluted and dense symbolism of the work. Out-of-print. Hint of shelfwear, a chemical reaction between the endpapers and the binder's glue has caused considerable darkening to the outer margins of the pastedowns (a common occurrence with the early issues of volumes in this series) with some offset to adjacent free endpapers. Still an unmarked near-Fine copy (no dust jacket issued). Scarce in this edition. Note - a full-sized poster of the Magical Calendar is available with this book for an additional $ 25.00 - please inquire or order our item no. 56453. Item #70136
