Little Soldier Games: The Book Of Shamans

Here's something you rarely see in role playing game books anymore: bibliographies.

Little Solder Games' Book of Shamans, written by Ed Lipsett, and published in 1978, has a bibliography, identifying those books used to research the proposed game abilities of Shamans. 

Joseph Campbell's "Hero With a Thousand Faces" and J.G. Frazer's "The Golden Bough" appear among the nine books listed in the bibliography in the Book Of Shamans.


I've always wondered, was The Book Of Shamans also published in digest book format, similar in size to the Book of Sorcery and Book of Demons?  My 68-page copy of the Book Of Shamans is printed in the larger, journal format, but this website indicates that it was also published in Digest format.

Anybody have a digest-sized version of the Book Of Shamans?

I have never, ever seen that book.

Fascinating.
