The fall of Troy, the birth of Christ, the downfall of the Soviet Union. Throughout history predictions have been made about the future. From priests and stargazers, the oracles at Delphi and modern attempts to find the future in dreams and horoscopes, prophets and their predictions have intrigued, amazed, and disturbed humankind. In “The Book of Prophecy” Geoffrey Ashe gives fresh insight into biblical prophecy, into prophetic elements in the works of Dante and Milton, and into Merlin’s so-called prophecies and the “return” of King Arthur. Ashe also looks at Nostradamus, clearing away the extravagant claims of some of his interpreters, and scrutinizing his genuinely impressive predictions. High readable and wide-ranging, this fascinating account is the definitive work on the much-debated and controversial subject of prophecy. CONDITION: NEW. New (albeit shopworn) oversized softcover. Orion (2003) 384 pages. Unblemished except for modest edge and corner shelfwear to the covers. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. The shelfwear to the covers consists of faint crease "shadows" or "stress marks" to the open covers corners where you can see that the corners were bent or deflected to some degree, but not folded over. So if you hold the book up to the light, or hold it so it catches the light, you can see faint stress marks to the open cover corners. They're not big, they're not prominent, but they do need to be disclosed. Condition is entirely consistent with new stock from a bookstore environment wherein new books might show minor signs of shelfwear, consequence of simply being shelved and re-shelved. satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! Meticulous and accurate descriptions!

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Geoffrey Ashe was born in London and lived for some years in Canada, where he attended the University of British Columbia. Returning to England, he studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was awarded an essay prize by the historian G. M. Trevelyan, at that time Master of the college. Most of his numerous books are on historical and mythological topics, especially the Arthurian legend, and he was secretary of the committee that excavated Cadbury Castle, the reputed original of Camelot. Geoffrey Ashe has held visiting professorships at several American and Canadian universities. He lives in Glastonbury. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: Highly readable and wide ranging, this fascinating account is the definitive work on the much debated and controversial subject of prophecy. What do the fall of Troy, the birth of Christ, and the Soviet Union have in common? Prophets have predicted these events, and here is fresh insight into these ever-intriguing, ever-amazing seers. The comprehensive coverage extends from priests and stargazers to the Oracle at Delphi to modern attempts to find the future in dreams and horoscopes. Did the famous diviners draw only on their own intuitions or did they have supernatural gifts that allowed them to make uncannily accurate forecasts? Among the seers depicted are the biblical prophets Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah; Merlin; Nostradamus; and writers such as Dante, Milton, and Blake. REVIEW: Prophets and their predictions have intrigued, amazed and disturbed humankind throughout recorded history, and in the mysterious realms of myth and legend. Geoffrey Ashe presents here a factual, learned, but easily accessible overview of major and minor prophecy, from the oracles at Delphi to modern attempts to find the future in dreams and horoscopes. Ashe's eclectic approach brings fresh insight into the subject, including Biblical prophecy, prophetic elements in the works of Dante and Milton, and Merlin's so-called prophecies and the 'return' of King Arthur. Ashe also addresses the confusion about the famous seer Nostradamus, clearing away the extravagant claims of some of his interpreters and scrutinizing anew his genuinely impressive predictions. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: The definitive book on the much-debated and controversial subject of prophecy. From the Delphic Oracle to Nostradamus to Lucis of Fatima, a survey of prophecy through the ages. “Two thumbs up”. This was very readable, entertaining, and very informative. REVIEW: Prophets throughout history have become famous for being able to foretell the future by drawing on their own intuitions, and perhaps supernatural gifts, to make predictions that are uncannily accurate. Among the prophetic heroes depicted are the biblical prophets Elijah, Isaiah, and Jeremiah, Merlin, Dante, Nostradamus, Milton, Blake, and a host of lesser-known seers, priestesses, witches, star-gazers, and premonitionists. I really enjoyed this book, and I learned a great deal. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). The shipment will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
