I decided to go all out and get the full version, but at the used price. I have to say I was a bit disappointed, while the book is packed with fascinating information and images, I never thought to look at the size dimensions of this mammoth 712 page book before buying: 8 inches long! Basically just an inch or two larger than my hand's length. Think: the size of a guide book. I was so looking forward to this book largely for the artwork it has, which shows fine lines and details. But alas, most of the images aren't full page but half-page size, so imagine how small they actually are in a 8x6 inch book! Honestly, I felt the book, for my purposes, was not worth the $45.00 USED price. I was picturing a large coffee table sized book where I could pour over the artwork, rather than something of a pocketguide. Knowing how small the artwork and text is, I wish I would have only spent $12.37 and sacrificed the 200 pages for the sake of my wallet.
I would recommend getting one of the two versions to anyone fascinated by spiritualism, symbology, archetypes, art from 1300s-1600s, and myth/folklore/magic.
