Subject: INFO: Original Dee mss. - How to get (
Date: 49940801

All three MSs come on microfilm ( a roll of ) at approximately x10 reduction.
If you want to print the folios to paper it goes nicely onto A3. The BL quote
is for microfilm since it costs approximately 1 pound sterling per page to 
put it to paper. Some places will do it much cheaper...

The folios I have are in exceptionally good quality and with a magnifying 
glass, you can read them quite easily. It's a pain in the eyes though!

Here's a list of the MSs. ( NOTE: If the Sloane numbers don't match, then go
with the ones you have since I'm quoting this from memory...! )

Libri Mysteriorum I-V; Sloane 3188; 175 exposures
Liber Logeath; Sloane 3189; 140 exposures
Libri Mysteriorum Sextus et Sanctus ( 4 books of Angelic Magic in Dee's hand );
   Sloane 3191; 98 exposures

All this stuff cost me approximately 60 pounds sterling to buy on film
including registered 1st class mail & P & P. Might cost you somewhat more 

The address to write to is:

	The British Library
	British Library Reproductions
	Great Russell Street

	Tel: 071-323 7614
	Fax: 071-323 7771

A reply may be quicker via FAX or phone. The whole process of writing to 
inquire and the actual delivery of the film should take about 2 months....

The MSs themselves make superb reading ( once you get the hang of Dee's
hand ! ) and there's a LOT of stuff in there that contemporary sources
( mostly Scheuler and other G.'.D.'. ) have either corrupted, missed out
or just got wrong.
