The Gnome Grimoire
The Gnome Manuscript – Part Two:
Magical Workings with Nature Spirits
The Gnome Manuscript by J.H.W. Eldermans has been a mystery for many years. The drawings and sketches of pentacles, talismans and amulets, ritual garments and tools and methods of magic, all graced by his graceful handwriting, have been a magnet to students of the occult, but the many texts in Dutch made it difficult to understand these writings. Wilmar Taal has taken on the task of categorizing, translating and commenting on this manuscript and the second instalment of The Gnome Manuscript will take you into the world of working magic with the little people…
Being the largest part of the trilogy, The Gnome Grimoire will not only bring you the well known Solomonic magic concerning gnomes, but also open the doors to the grey circuit, the circles of unknown witches and magisters who share their knowledge of gnome magic, and for the first time translated into English. It will enable the practitioner to prepare foods that gnomes are attracted to, to build contraptions that enables you to see gnomes roaming free in the fields or to gain the aid of a gnome during the search for hidden treasure. The Gnome Grimoire is your go-to book concerning the magic with gnomes, at least Dutch gnomes………

News & Events:
Amidst these strange and difficult times, we wish to assure our customers that Troy Books remains fully operational and continues to fulfil orders. We have received updates from our suppliers ensuring us that they are not currently having any issues. In general delivery times with UK Royal Mail do not seem to have been too badly affected but some parcels to overseas locations are taking a little longer so please allow a little longer for delivery.
As the occultist seeks to make progress despite adversity and find something of value in every difficult situation, we are reminded that esoteric endeavour often makes great use of periods of contemplative retreat and withdrawal from society, making extra space for focused daily meditation, prayer, the study of texts and the practice of ritual, magic and acts of creativity. As we find ourselves forced into retreat and isolation and many of us strive to make the best of a difficult situation, all titles from Troy Books continue to be available to those who might find them of use during this period and we offer our deepest thanks to our wonderful readership for their continued support.
