Old-Barbarossa Hey, John Dee...saw his mirror and some of his other kit at the British Museum a while back. It's stuck out of the way in a case with a bunch of other odd stuff.

I should like to see that exhibit very much. I better add it to my list.

:)

Old-Barbarossa Will try and find the photo I took and post it...if I can figure out how to do that.
The mirror is a polished piece of obsidian if memory serves. Also in the case were some of his magickal/magical seals inscribed on wax tablets. I find all that Enochian stuff a bit bewildering to be honest though.

Idiot's Guide please.

At the top right of the comment box where you post messages, there is written "(some html is ok)", a link to the codes, symbols with which you add italics, boldface, images, etc to the post.

Sorry, makes no sense to me...tried copying the thing in "some html is ok" and then pasting the image.
Anyone know how to explain the process in an eejit proof way?

Old-Barbarossa Now you're just showing off...
Was trying to post a couple of photos I took in the Brit Museum...can you only post photos with online links? Can you not upload?

Betty Asma (everydayabook) Hi, Old-Barbarossa and Whoever wants to add an image.

--Import, scan, or download the image and save it to your computer's desktop, album, etc.

--Go to your Goodreads Profile/Account and add the saved image to your GR's photo collection.

Before you leave your photo collection, click on the added image (WiFi might be a two-fingers click; Mouse might be a right click) to open a list of options, one of which is like 'View Image Info'. Copy the photo's Goodreads http Location.

--Go to Comments box and "some html is ok" Copy and paste the Image code into the comments box.

Replace http://www.goodreads.com/image... with your photo's Goodreads http Location. Replace description with your own description.

Add your caption to the comment box.

Preview. Adjust, if necessary, the width and height numbers. Post.

The solitary photo of Frances Yates was part of my post to show the instructions do work. The answer to "can you only post photos with online links" might be yes and no. The image could have first been imported from a memory stick or scanned from a book rather than downloaded from a website. Once the image is in your computer, you add it into your Goodreads photo collection, where it gets a unique Goodreads http address.

I'm looking forward to your photos from the British Museum.

click on 'more photos (2)', OR just click one of your photo links in message 13 above.

Now you're in your photo collection. Good job! There are the two photos from the Brit Museum. Click on one of them to select (frame) it. Then, use a two-finger click (laptop), or a right click (mouse), on the selected (framed) photo to get a list of options, one of which is 'View Image Info', which gives the LOCATION, DIMENSION, etc of the selected photo (Dr Dee 2 or 3):

or

Replace the sample html code http://www.goodreads.com/image... with one of your photo LOCATIONS. Preview, Adjust the width/height numbers, and Post (when your Comment is completed).

Congratulations on the pics. The online Brit Museum carries a detailed description of the mirror and discs.
