Wie Nunspeet zegt, zegt Van Vloten. De Sage van het Ronde Huis (Free Musketeers/Lecturium Publishers, 2014) OUT OF PRINT
Say Nunspeet and you say Van Vloten. The Round House Saga. When Frank van Vloten opens the doors of his villa in 1907, he will not suspect that his house will be the backdrop of a conspiracy theory in which occult rituals, prostitutes and murder will be featured. A thorough archival study revealed details ignored by conspiracy theorists, which shines a completely different light on the history of this house.

The Silent Listener. The Life and Works of J.H.W. Eldermans (Troy Books 2018)
The Richel-Eldermans collection is one of the most enigmatic sexual magic collections in the world, and can be found in the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, Boscastle, United Kingdom. The collection consists mainly of works by J.H.W. Eldermans, a former civil servant who lived in The Hague, The Netherlands. His skills are of an undeniable high quality, and his works are not only made on paper, but also in metal, wood and bone. Who was J.H.W. Eldermans, and why was he interested in sexual magic to a degree that borders on obsession? Was Eldermans acquainted with Cecil H. Williamson? Was he a member of an occult lodge called Ars Amatoria? Was J.H.W. Eldermans an unknown magister in the occult art?
This book is also available as a standard hardback and special edition:
The press about The Silent Listener. The Life and Works of J.H.W. Eldermans
Wiccan Rede Lughnasadh 2018:
Was Eldermans an Occultist? Did he take part in rituals in secret societies? What drove him to make all the drawings, the artefacts …? Who was he?? Many of these questions are amply answered in this well-researched biography. For the Dutch audience, it is a gem. It is perhaps a pity that the collection didn’t remain in the Netherlands, but luckily Bob Richel had the courage to approach the MWM … and the rest is history. Thanks to Wilmar too for all the work he has done to make visible the work – and life – of Eldermans in the Netherlands. Highly recommended. (Morgana Sythove)
