When the word "grimoire" is mentioned, the Petit Albert is perhaps the single most notorious book which comes to mind. Originally compiled in the 18th century, it brings together folk magick, talismanic sorcery, ritual and herbal medicine, and a bit of the diabolical, going well beyond the ritual styles of most contemporary writings. Originally in French, and drawing from the prior work of Paracelsus and Agrippa among others, this collection of operations extends far beyond its native land into the world at large; the first cosmopolitan grimoire of the pre-modern era. More diabolical than the Red Dragon and more in depth than the Black Pullet with regards to talismanic art, the Petit Albert is certainly a force to behold within the realm of occult literature.

To many observers, folklore and book culture might appear to be opposites. Folklore, after all, involves orally circulated stories and traditions while book culture is concerned with the transmission of written texts. However, as Kevin J. Hayes points out, there are many instances where the two intersect, and exploring those intersections is the purpose of this fascinating and provocative study. Hayes shows that the acquisition of knowledge and the ownership of books have not displaced folklore but instead have given rise to new beliefs and superstitions. Some book have generated new proverbs; others have fostered their own legends. Occasionally the book has served as an important motif in folklore, and in one folk genre - the flyleaf rhyme - the book itself has become the place where folklore occurs, thus indicating a lively interaction between folk, print, and manuscript culture. Solidly researched and venturing into areas long neglected by scholars, Folklore and Book Culture is a work that will engage not only folklorists but historians and literary scholars as well.

Local practitioners of magic, providing small-scale but valued services to the community, cunning-folk were far more representative of magical practice than the arcane delvings of astrologers and necromancers. Mostly unsensational in their approach, cunning-folk helped people with everyday problems: how to find lost objects; how to escape from bad luck or a suspected spell; and how to attract a lover or keep the love of a husband or wife. While cunning-folk sometimes fell foul of the authorities, both church and state often turned a blind eye to their existence and practices, distinguishing what they did from the rare and sensational cases of malevolent witchcraft. In a world of uncertainty, before insurance and modern science, cunning-folk played an important role that has previously been ignored.

Le Corbusier, the most influential architect of the twentieth century, died in 1965 only weeks after completing Mise au point, his last opus in the form of autobiographical reflections. Published posthumously, Mise au point is a curious and cryptic text, yet it sheds an important light on the great artist's mind and temperament. This book is the first English translation of Mise au point, the first illustrated critical bilingual edition, and the first attempt to integrate this document into Le Corbusier's life as a whole, especially its final embittered years.In an insightful introduction and in annotations, Ivan Zaknic shows how the themes of the text echo the contradictions of Le Corbusier's personality: determined to rebuke society and yet constantly courting its approval; devoted to serving the public and yet returning again and again to a solitary monastic ideal; distrusting professional institutions, the academy, and the government and yet stung by their willingness to pass him by. Zaknic links the,themes of this text with Le Corbusier's passion for certain literary works, especially Don Quixote, and emphasizes the architect's many philosophical formulas for coming to terms with death -- first that of his beloved wife and then his own. Illustrated with photos and drawings, many of which appear here for the first time, and also including a revealing interview granted by Le Corbusier in the final months of his life, the volume will be welcomed by all students of Le Corbusier's art, architecture, and urban planning, as well as by those interested in modernism and twentieth-century culture."Le Corbusier's text provides fundamental insight into the mind of a great artist at theend of his life and depicts, in surprising stark hues, his humility, modesty, frankness, commitment, pessimism, and redeeming sense of irony". -- Kenneth Frampton, Columbia University
