Do they include the things that man was not meant to know? Because that is what I want to know.

Oooh, great find!

Combine with the objects from the old Wellcome Trust exhibition Charmed Life for greatness!

How much would I love to get a copy of Edward Lovett's, 'Magic in Modern London'.

Actually, I would say not; quite the opposite. If you want to know something that man was not meant to know, ask a woman. She'll know.

After all, wasn't it Eve, the woman, who first accepted the Serpent's challenge to eat the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.........?
