-----------hardcover, a Fine copy, unread, in a Fine dustjacket, 333 pages, ---"Necronomicon -- a mere glance at its pages sends its readers shrieking into the night, their soul seared for all eternity! At least that's what people want you to believe --- Thank goodness authors Daniel Harms and John Wisdom Gonce III set the record straight in this scholarly yet accessible history of the dreaded tome. The Necronomicon Files is an incredibly comprehensive guide to the Necronomicon that covers all aspects, legends, and factual history surrounding this nefarious book. From a complete history of the book as it evolved in the Cthulhu mythos started by Lovecraft and continued by others, to contemporary editions now available to the public. From appearances and references in movies and other media, to the actual magical concepts behind the fictional and published Necronomicon variants. Much more than just a dry, factual account, Harms's and Gonce's deep knowledge in their respective fields of interest bring the history and continuing influence of the Necronomicon alive with wit and verve. Humorous and intriguing, this compassionate examination of the Necronomicon is a thorough repudiation of the myths surrounding it, yet preserves much of the romance and fascination associated with the legend'---, contents include: Introduction; The Necronomicon in Literature ( HPL and the N; Many a Quaint and Curious Volume - The N Made Flesh; The Voynich Manuscript and the N ---The N in Magick - A Brief History of Modern magick; Magick and the N; The Simon N and the Maqlu Text; Nameless Cutlery - The Sword of the N --- The N in Film and Television - Unspeakanle Culys - The N on Film; Call of the Cathode ray - The N on TV ---Evaluating N Rumours --- Conclusion --- APPENDIX: History of the Necronomicon, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED///(Guaranteed available)
