Paperback Del Rio

Although not quite a full translation of Martin Del Rio's famous and influential Disquisitionum magicarum libri sex from around 1600, this is the closest one comes in English. Book 2 is probably the one of most interest to those interested in magia posthuma and vampires, and if Maxwell-Stuart's text does not suffice, an original edition in Latin is available on Gallica. Originally published in hardback in 2000, a paperback edition should now be available from Manchester University Press for £16.99.
