The Magdeburg Relic Dennis Wheatley inspired new book

I hope Christopher Chadwick won't mind me plugging his new book (he might be a member on these boards) but he has just written a book inspired by his love of Wheatley occult novels.

Rarity grading for First editions

I realise that all the 1930’s hard back books will be rare but even in later publications some seem to be very rare to spot for example the black magic omnibus 1956 and the secret missions of Gr...
