The Ordines Descendens of Dr. John Dee

by Described and Edited by Peter W. Mills

Condition: Fine

Somerset, England: Privately Published, 2006. Cloth. Fine. A pristine copy of the 2006 reproduction --in itself very uncommon-- and "record of a previously unknown lost volume of occult instruction originally written by the Elizabethan English scientist and oocultist Dr. John Dee (1527-c.1608)". #60 OF AN EDITION OF ONLY 236 COPIES, so indicated by the publisher's armorial bookplate/limitation plate affixed to the front pastedown. Tight and Fine in its dark cloth, with matching insignia (identical to the bookplate's) and titling in dramatic red relief. Tall quarto, described (at length) and edited by Peter W. Mills, who brought this reproduction to life by way of his "devout Roman Catholic friend" who had owned the original manuscript.
