De Virtutibus Lapidum. The Virtues of Stones, Attributed to Damigeron Translated by Patricia Tahil,
Edited by Joel Radcliffe.
This first time in English translation, a veritable grimoire of gemstones, is a must for those into primary source materials!
Dating from the Second Century B.C. in Arabia, this classic has been translated from the Old Latin and Classical Greek. An emphasis on completeness is exhibited in the publishing of this work; in this translation the original Latin and Greek are printed in the latter half of the book. Also included are the complete Latin footnotes. The luster from the blend of historical curiosity and the power of stones create a unique tone and brilliant insight into the diverse magickal/ritual and healing uses of gemstones. Fifty gemstones are mentioned. In the history of lapidaries, De Virtutibus Lapidum, by the Mage Damigeron represents one of our deepest roots of an ancient source of the base for our contemporary literature and knowledge on the magickal lore of gemstones. This is possibly the oldest in the West and Near East.
16 pp.,94 pgs., 4.25 x 7 inches. Type has been set in Jenson.
