Guide may not be spoiler-free.
All sorceries need to be acquired for the same character, and only 1 copy of each is needed (some can be bought/found twice in each playthrough)

The undead merchant sells a residence key, use this to open the locked door in Lower Undead Burg where Griggs is prisoner. When saving NPCs, make sure you roll to break obstacles, as hitting them will turn them aggressive towards you. He will be in Firelink Shrine and sell:
Aural Decoy
Fall Control
Soul Arrow
Great Soul Arrow
Heavy Soul Arrow
Great Heavy Soul Arrow

- Some of these are also sold by Logan. Griggs sells some more spells after Logan appears, but Logan also sells them.

Big hat Logan is trapped in Sen's Fortress behind the wall where the Serpent is sleeping. This can be broken by aiming the boulders towards it (or by getting the serpent to stab the wall with his sword, this is tricky though). Let him out of the cage and he will go to Firelink Shrine and sell sorceries with Griggs. Buy them all and he moves to (and gets trapped in) Duke's Archives. Get the key and head back to free him, and he will move to the room near the way to the Crystal Cave. Buy all his spells, and defeat Seath in the Crystal Caves, and he will move to the Seath's first room in the Archives. Defeat Logan here to make him drop White Dragon Breath.
Sells the following before turning hollow:
Homing Soulmass
Magic Shield
Magic Weapon
Soul Spear
Homing Crystal Soulmass
- Duke's Archives
Crystal Magic Weapon - Duke's Archives
Crystal Soul Spear - Duke's Archives

After defeating the Hydra in Darkroot Basin, head around to the back where there is a cave. Kill the Gold Crystal Golem here (if it hasn't loaded, just quit the game, re-load your save, and the Golem should appear). Talk to Dusk of Oolacile and say Yes. She can now be summoned in front of where the Hydra was fought. She sells the following:
Cast Light
Hidden Body
Hidden Weapon

Ingward is found in New Londo Ruins on the church roof. He will sell Resist Curse.

Great Magic Weapon - In Anor Londo, cut down the chandelier while up on the rafters. The spell will be on the floor where the chandelier crashes.
Hush - In Sen's fortress, head down the path from the boulder mechanism room that goes towards the mimic area (that drops the lightning spear). Immediately after heading down this route there will be a broken wall on the right. Fall/jump attack though this gap (as there is a Serpent mage at the bottom). Head through the hall to collect some armour and the spell.
Remedy - This is in a chest in Blighttown, when using the route from Valley of Drakes. There is a fairly obvious tree branch that must be crossed (carefully!) to reach it.
Strong Magic Shield - Found in a chest in the Duke's Archives. Using the rotating stairs, it is on the top floor in a chest.
