Title: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Divination: A Practical Guide to the Systems That Can Reveal Your Destiny
Description: Element Books Ltd. 1997. (ISBN: 1852309032) Soft cover. Book, 256 pages, all cultures have used divination to seek advice or help from unseen forces, though the methods have differed. Karcher (Elements of the I Ching, Element, 1995) gives a colorful historical overview of the practices from many lands and times, including runes, tarot, dowsing, numerology, tea leaves, and more obscure rituals involving bones and spiders. A solid bibliography points readers to monographs on particular topics ; the index allows users to locate information specific to a country, symbol, or rite ; and a brief glossary is also included. Practitioners of the divination arts will need more depth, but libraries without a treatment of this subject (e.g. Divining the Future, Facts on File, 1995) will find this a readable and comprehensive choice. All of our books are in the shop, and are 'real' books. We try to post the same day as the order. Descriptions are conservative. Postage rates may be lower than ABE estimate, please use Ask Bookseller a Question to confirm availability and postage cost, use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability and get accurate postage quote for this item (the amount quoted is for an 'average' hard-cover book of up to 1kg in weight). Very Good.
