City Of Sorcery By Marion Zimmer Bradley 1984 Hb Bradley Book Club Edition, First Printing

Series; Darkover. Sequel to Thendara House
Published by DAW Books in October 1984.

City of Sorcery begins five years after the end of Thendara House.[1] The Renunciates and a select group of Terran women who have agreed to abide by Renunciate laws have formed The Bridge Society, to facilitate understanding between the two groups.

Magda Lorne learns from her supervisor, Cholayna Ares, that a Terran operative, Alexis Anders, has survived a plane crash in the Hellers a week earlier. Five days later, she appeared at the spaceport with amnesia. Cholayna believes Anders’ memory has been tampered with and wants Magda to use her laran abilities to help recover her memories. After a bit of telepathic probing, Anders abruptly appears to have recovered, though she remembers nothing of her past week’s ordeal.

Later, in retelling the story to Camilla at the Guildhouse, Magda recalls her three previous experiences with mystical visions of the Dark Sisterhood, and crows, which seem to be their avatars. Camilla tells Magda that the Sisterhood is a secret society; that she and Jaelle were both invited to join, but refused. With Jaelle’s assistance, Magda makes contact with the Forbidden Tower, but they are unable to explain Anders’ experiences.

The 21 Lessons of Merlyn: A Study in Druid Magic and Lore Paperback – 2000
by Douglas Monroe

King Arthur would get advice from his magician, Merlyn, in the mythic stories. The real Arthur (who lived over 500 years before the period of the mythic Arthur) was trained by a Druid bard and poet named Merlyn. The result was an unprecedented period of peace that lasted for twenty years.

This is truly a complete course in authentic Celtic Druidism and magick. Filled with lore, philosophy, wisdom, rituals, and more, you'll be able to apply many of these concepts to improve your life.

The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land to find the Doors of Death. What exactly are the Doors of Death? Much of the prophecy remains a mystery. . . .

But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

This novel is recommended for ages 12 and up (grades 7 and up), and is a New York Times bestseller.

Atlantis - The Antediluvian World by Donnelly Harper Bros. 1882 mythology

First edition of Donnelly’s account of the lost civilization of Atlantis, richly illustrated with full-page and in-text wood engravings.

After losing a bitterly contested election to Congress, Donnelly “turned from politics to literature. A speculative and imaginative turn of mind, a remarkable capacity to juxtapose disparate facts, a vigorous prose style and a lawyer’s gift for advocacy led him to write a variety of books, including fiction, during the final decades of his life. In Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, Donnelly sought to validate Plato’s narrative by studying myths” (ANB). In these pages he proposes that the Atlantean kings were the gods of Greek and Phoenician mythology, and that their colonies in both hemispheres significantly influenced early civilizations.

GHOSTS IN AMERICAN HOUSES by James Reynolds - 1955 1st US Edition

Clad in its original dust jacket, time and gentle hands have treated this volume well.
Thirty-three tales, some of which are "The Moaning Oak", "The Phantom Lighthouse", and "Buried in Crystal".
"Buried in Crystal" relates the sensational disappearance of San Francisco debutante Flora Summerton upon the very night of her introduction to Nob Hill society. Without clue nor trace, Flora, along with her crystal-beaded Parisian gown, vanished into thin air, and her father's quarter-of-a-million dollar reward went unclaimed. Many years later, in Butte, Montana, the mystery was solved at last, yet poor Flora's ghost still haunts the streets of San Francisco where it all began.

James Reynolds, the author, is also the illustrator, and his companion pieces for each story (four in color, the remainder black and white) successfully capture the essence of the content with skillful mastery. In both the watercolor and monochromatic prints. James Reynolds, author and artist, renowned for his work in the western art genre, that one's preferred medium being oil on canvas. All thirty-three art prints are potentially valuable.

228 pages.8.50 x 11 x 1 inches - Very Good; Sand colored cloth hard cover in excellent condition. Jacket shows wear and tear.Clean and unmarked. Complete and intact.

THE DIARY OF ELLEN RIMBAUER - MY LIFE AT ROSE RED J. REARDON 2001

At the turn of the twentieth century, Ellen Rimbauer, the young bride of Seattle industrialist John Rimbauer, began keeping a remarkable diary. This diary became the secret place where Ellen could confess her anxieties about her new marriage, express her confusion over her emerging sexuality, and contemplate the nightmare that her life was becoming.

The diary not only follows the development of a girl into womanhood, it follows the construction of the Rimbauer mansion—called Rose Red—an enormous home that would be the site of so many horrific and inexplicable tragedies in the years ahead.
Excellent like new condition. Stated First Edition. 252 pages, Hyperion; 1st edition (January 2001), 5.9 x 0.9 x 8.5 inches.

The Druid Source Book Paperback – 1998
by John Matthews

"[Matthews's] volume is well researched and well documented, and he clearly states that much of what we 'know' is the result of romanticized and/or biased information. This is an exceptionally fine resource for researchers in history, religion, and sociology. Highly recommended...".-- "Library Journal. "Most of us know Druids as white-cloaked Celtic practitioners of a mystical faith....

There's more to Druidism, of course--much more, judging from John Matthews's authoritative "The Druid Source Book..".-- "Blandford. 384 pages, 20 b/w illus., 6 x 9 x 1.

Very good soft cover book with slightly bumped corners.
