New Catalog Number 97 from Pratum Book Company -- "History Folklore Religion Philosophy"
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-Seven. 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 Standish's history of ideas about the "Hollow Earth" or something as rare as Ephriam George Squier's "Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley" from 1848, 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-Seven itself here. There are images from the Catalog on Tumblr here.
Please note, all inquiries about books and sales in Catalog Ninety-Seven should go to Pratum Book Company (email@example.com) and not Fields Book Store.

The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
Honorius of Thebes
Ibis Press / Nicolas-Hayes
As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. 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...

Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality
Allen, Lasara Firefox
Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd.
"Jailbreaking the Goddess
is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. . . . I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!" -- Starhawk
Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...
