14 John Dee John Dee's Five Books of Mystery
WeiserBooks 2002 First Thus PAPERBACK Very Good 
Trade Paperback First Thus 2003 479pp. Clean pages. Free of writing or marks. The great beauty of this edition is editor stays pretty much out of the way and lets the Elizabethan Merlin present his findings. Dee might actually have been a reincarnation of the Welsh bard Myrddin/Merlin. He actually discovered from Mercator the Dutch map maker that king Arthur had a colony in America and this was presented as a counter claim to Spain's claim of Christopher Columbus. I do not know about you but I rather have John Dee's angels who might or might not speak in this book and King Arthur for America's founding discoverer than the Spanish Inquisition! In here we have Dee;s Scrying with mirror and crystal. The best book of this material. Here in Very good handsome shape. . Very Good. First Edition.
