I am crazy exited about these, and can’t wait to get my teeth into them! Both of them are absolutely huge, with really impressive reference lists that I want to read! I haven’t bought a decent (non-scientific at least) academic text in some time and I have missed them. If I had known just how huge they were going to be, I’d have got hardbacks.
I’m still unsure as to which book I should start on first. Luck’s book is older and is referenced often in Ogden’s, but Ogden’s is more up to date and provides a more critical examination of the literature (including the Arcana Mundi), it also looks easier to read. I’d like to go through in chronological order but realistically I can feel myself going to Ogden’s first!
