This is a must-have treasure for Dee aficionados and esoteric scholars who absolutely need the most meticulously detailed version of these highly influential works. A labour of love twenty years in the making, these volumes include transcripts of four manuscripts from the British Library and one from the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Two of these manuscripts have never been published. Each page is laid out to match the original manuscripts, including lines, marks, notations, diagrams, and notes that Dee wrote on the paper. Also includes ten appendices featuring maps, a gazetteer, the 48 Keys, the complete Angelic lexicon, a glossary of archaic words, a manuscript index, and more.

His other interests include physics, comparative religion (particularly Tibetan Buddhism), walking, and visiting exotic places.
