Pratum Book Company Is Back After Three Years -- Catalog Ninety
Those of you who spent any time at Fields Book Store between our 75th Anniversary remodelling in 2007 and our closing in 2013 will be familiar with Pratum Book Company. At that time we entered into a consignment partnership with Todd Pratum, an esoteric book dealer since 1981, and featured a great many of his books on our shelves. The books ranged from rare antiquarian tomes bound in vellum to unusual scarce works of scholarship or esoteric experience to well-selected and attractively priced paperbacks.
Todd Pratum is well-known for his incredibly well-researched catalogs of book offerings which he has been issuing over the decades. He has just issued Catalog Ninety. As Fields Book Store has partnered with Todd for a number of these catalogs in the past, we would like to promote his new catalog even though he is working independently on this one. It features an excellent selection of well-chosen books, and a wealth of knowledge about both the books and the subject matter.
Regardless of whether you are looking for inexpensive items such as David Fideler's four issues of the "Alexandria" journal, or something as massive as the 754 folio volumes of the National Union Catalog (at a half-million pages, perhaps the largest book in the world) documenting the contents of the Library of Congress and much else, you will find much of value here.
You can find the Pratum Book Company web site here (where you can sign up for his mailing list), and Catalog Ninety itself here. Be sure not to miss the description and photos of "The World's Largest Book" on the last pages of the catalog.
Please note, all inquiries about books and sales in Catalog Ninety should go to Pratum Book Company (firstname.lastname@example.org) and not Fields Book Store.

The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
Honorius of Thebes

Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
