Description

Limited to 200 copies. This copy signed by the editor on the title-page. Dr. John Dee, the Elizabethan Polymath, employed treasure maps and the assistance of Angelic beings in his search for hidden riches. Grimoires such as ‘The Little Book Sacred to the Black Venus’ aka ‘The Tuba Veneris’ offered an alternative path to wealth using less exulted spirits. This edition, published by Neptune Press, is the first to include a facsimile of the original manuscript in full and reproduced in color along with the Latin transcription, the English translation and a detailed examination of this medieval masterpiece.
