Catalogus Librorum Impressorum Bibliothecæ Ionathani Bordenii

(Library Catalogue). “Habent sua fata libelli,” wrote Terentianus Maurus at the end of the first century A.D., “Books have their own destinies.”

A fitting maxim nearly two millennia later for Jonathan “Jono” Borden, whose private library of many and varied texts on magic and occultism, poetry and religion, gathered “from beyond the seas”—in the spirit of John Dee—and assembled over a period of eleven years between 2010 and 2020, opens with its ancient quotation.

Words to shelve and browse by, as this comprehensive guide to his core collection describes in detail, using Resource Description and Access (RDA) standards, all 676 volumes of Borden’s most cherished editions—arranged according to Library of Congress Classification (LCC), defined by Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).

This exquisitely-crafted catalogue of the Bibliotheca Ionathani Bordenii is an artwork in itself, which assists in accessing its treasures across ten chapters—in Latin and English.
