     Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks Series
This series of limited edition hand-bound books by Adam McLean were initially produced between 1979 and 1986. They were never sold through book dealers, but only by direct mail order. Consequently, these books became collectors items, often fetching high prices on the second-hand market. Only a few copies remain of some of the older titles in this series and a number are now entirely sold out. Since 1997 fourteen new titles have been issued with more in preparation.

No. 20. The Five Books of Mystical Exercises of John Dee

An Angelic Revelation of Cabalistic Magic and other Mysteries Occult and Divine revealed to Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly A.D. 1581 - 1583. Transcribed from Sloane 3188 in the British Library by Joseph Peterson

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.
Limited edition of 250 copies. xvi + 285 pages with illustrations in the text. A5 hardbound.
£55.00 (including air mail postage)
£50.00 (including Europe or UK postage)
