To those who
are interested in owning a book written in the 1500's for $1.00 it is not
too late. The Seneschal of Marinus just put this on our baronial list:
"Between the confusion caused by the Society Exchequer's proposed
Real World events, we the Barony of Marinus have decided to postpone the
Drawing for the book "Martyrologium". We first contacted all
purchased tickets and sought their permission, they all graciously gave
permission for this proposal and I thank them. This also allows those who
thought they had missed the opportunity to purchase tickets a chance to
for them. Please forward this to as many other lists as you are
will and pass to your folks."
Here is a copy of the last posting I did on it, with a few changes:
Greetings unto the scribes of the Known World:
A couple months ago I posted a message about a period book that the
Barony of Marinus in Atlantia bought and was raffling off at $1.00 per
ticket. There followed some discussion about not being able to sell
tickets due to the new proposed policy of the Society Exchequer. This
policy was not approved by the board, and therefore we are allowed to
sell tickets Society wide. So, the raffle is back on and the date for the
raffle WAS Sept. 29 at A Viking Thing in Atlantia but has been postponed.
The new date for the Raffle has not been announced yet. (You do not need
to be present to win)
The book was written in the 1500's and is a reprint of an older work. It
has woodblock prints, not hand illumination. It has been printed and not
hand calligraphied (from what I can tell). It is in Latin. It is about
the saints and their symbols and stories. There are three sections to it.

Please include your mailing address (A SASE for the tickets would be nice too) so Lady Felicia can mail your tickets back and get in touch with you for shipping arrangements should you win.
This is a fundraiser for the Barony of Marinus. The proceeds will go towards purchasing a new pavillion to replace the one that did not fair so well this year at Pennsic. (Not to mention the tumble over the ravine on the way home from Pennsic).
If raffles are prohibited by law where you live, please do not purchase a ticket. Please check with your local law before you send in any money to avoid possible legal complications.
Thanks for your support!
