English term or phrase: The Book of Wizards
There is a book written in English, a little bit like 'Lord of the Rings'. But as far as I understand it, it is called somethings like the "The Book of Wizards" - only the title is still in Latin/Hebrew/Greek. So I need to know what this title is in Hebrew! Help? Thank you
Florian

Why is the 'K' in haKosmim capital and the 'h' not?

transliteration


Explanation:
Hi Florian,
It's just a transliteration. When writing the phrase in English it can be Book of Wizards (ie- you'll cpitalize the "o" of the "of"), but will capitalize the "W" of "Wizards", I did the same in the transliteration. It's not an essential though, and the transliteration can also be Sefer hakosmim.

Best regards,
Michal
