Qotd: What is your favourite fairytale retelling? . I absolutely adore all beauty and the beast retellings, especially A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer⚔️ It was the perfect blend of magic, darkness, adventure and romance. The world building, plot and character development was brilliant. And the sequel was surprisingly even better🤩

Circus performers defy the laws of physics in this visually stunning performance, riding motorcycles inside a mesh sphere ball and looping vertically and horizontally. More dangerous presentations would have more than one rider inside the globe and spectators would hold their breath with the fear of a collision.   #rarephotogallery #photohistory   #vintagephoto #rarebooks #antiquarianbooks #vintagephotography #bookstagram #librariesofinstagram #specialcollections #rarebooks #bookmarks #manuscript

While likely being a First Edition, this copy of South By Java Head by Scottish author Alistair MacLean is unique in another way: it was rebound. Following its publication in 1958, it made its way to Decatur Public Library, and in 1963, it was given new life with this vibrant, intricate cover design. The book still retains it's original library pocket and a stamp from the 1963 bindery. It is in great condition, with only minor foxing on the pages here and there. . . $25 with free domestic shipping! To claim, comment "Hold" below, DM me, or check it out on my Etsy - link in bio! . . #books #booksellersofinstagram #bookstagram #antiquarianbooks #antiquarian #antique #vintage #retro #wwii #worldwarii #scottish #scotland #library #bookbinding #bookrepair

Qotd: Is there a specific author you’ve been reading a lot of lately? . Hello, happy Friday!🤩 It’s such a beautiful day today, the vibes are just immaculate. Recently, I’ve found myself reading and rereading a lot of Jane Austen novels (my page may slowly be turning into an Austen fanpage ). I admire how her novels are timeless, despite being set in a specific time. They can be read whenever and it’s still easy to relate. I love her heroines and how witty, loyal and independent they are. The plots always uplift me, which may be why I seem to be reading a lot of her work lately. I think right now, Jane Austen is my comfort author? There’s so much to love about this young woman who wrote so few stories, such a long time ago.

You never know when you’ll need it😂 That’s why I like purchasing paperbacks instead of hardbacks, because they’re easier to carry with me at all times.

Bazarachiel, The White Serpent — Bazarachiel, who occurs as a white serpent, rules over the spirits of the dead and ancestral spirits. He is a mighty and all-knowing spirit, the first to make a pact with Satan and rules over all the wyrm and unclean animals. To understand his miracle is described as equivalent to being elected emperor by god. From: Dr. Johannes Faust's Threefold Coercion of Hell, also called Magia naturalis et innaturalis, Johann Scheible, 1849 #magianaturalisetinnaturalis #faust #goethe #chritophermarlowe #demonology #rarebooks #raremagicbooks #zauberbu ̈cher #magie #blackmagic #goetia #grimoires #antiquarianbooks #esotericism #occultillustration #occultart #witchcraft #witchesofinstagram

Это солнце, нарисованное яркой киноварью, украшает интереснейшее календарное пособие, называемое «Часы на кругу». В нем заключены указания в каком месяце сколько содержится часов дневных и ночных и с какого дня месяца эти часы прибывают или убывают.⁣ ⁣ В моем собрании эти «Часы» находятся в рукописи второй половины XVIII века. Они открывают раздел, содержащий десятки календарных рук и таблиц для расчета дат переходящих праздников, для определения на какой день недели приходится тот или иной праздник, расчета продолжительности Петрова поста.⁣ ⁣ Сами же «Часы» не являются каким-либо практическим календарным пособием для расчета дат праздников, а восходят к круговой диаграмме, использовавшейся в средневековой Москве для настройки два раза в месяц башенных часов с боем. ⁣ ⁣ #календарь #rarebooks #oldbooks #рукописнаякнига #рукопись #каллиграфия #calligraphymasters #illuminatedmanuscript #watercolordrawing #старообрядческаярукописнаякнига #orthodox #староверы #старообрядцы #старообрядчество #древлеправославие #knijnica #manuscript #iconpainting #antiquarianbooks #antiquebooks #древняярусь #medievalart #православие #иконопись #историяроссии #orthodoxchurch #икона #православнаяцерковь
