The Canadian Herbal: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
I am very excited by this work; not only because of its region of manufacture but because it is the perfect combination of a receipt book and herbal; two types of texts of great interest to me.

The Universal Fortune Teller of Mrs. Bridget - Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The 1790 Universal Fortune Teller is not attributed to Napoleon, although later works containing similar (and sometimes utterly plagiarized) content were. This text contains an elaborate backstory in which the editor claims to have obtained a manuscript from the thatched hut of an old wise woman who had recorded her occult findings in heiroglyphic form. Subsequent to cracking this...
