    -excellent listing; carries Gardner's books & assorted paraphanalia such as Abramelin oil. Carries many more books than listed in their catalog; reportedly if you call them they can get ANY occult book, if it's available anywhere. No, I don't have their phone #.
  8. Llewellyn Publications

    St. Paul, MN 55164-0383
    -not so good a source these days, but carries reprints of many of Israel Regardie's classics. Their catalog resembles the National Enquirer; caveat emptor. Interesting to read for entertainment purposes, occasionally one will find a good book there.

These opinions are my own, & where I recall purchasing these books in the past. They may no longer be available.
