The day after I found and purchased a book by Lauren de Laurence, I walked into Bookworks in Lakeview, only to find this astonishing gem.
Lauren de Laurence - The Great Book of Magical Art, Hindoo Magic and Indian Occultism
It's huge, beautiful and at $275, much more than I can justify spending right now. So if you're in the market, drop in to Bookworks. It's in the glass case near the rare books and first printings.
