This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but should help the seeker to begin to find.  Included are works that have bearing under the broadly defined topic of druidism.  The merits of each work are left to be decided by the reader, and do not necessarily receive my personal indorsement. It is often important that we become familiar even with the worse pieces of scholarship because they have such an historical impact.  I am interested in Druidism, the Craft, Kabbalah, Gnosticism, and such things, and would be interested in
corresponding with most anyone.  My CIS # is 71460, 3271.  Anyway, I hope this is helpful.
