Histoire de la magie, avec une exposition claire et précise de ses procédés, de ses rites et de ses mystères by Éliphas Lévi( )

46 editions published between 1859 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1860, Éliphas Lévi's history of magic follows in the wake of his enormously successful Dogme et Ritual de la Haute Magie, which first appeared in 1854. In this book, the French occultist and alleged magician offers a thoroughly comprehensive survey of the idea of 'magic' in Western history, from its origins in Indian, Greek, cabalistic and hermetic traditions to the latest developments in nineteenth-century occult philosophy, as well as his own private recollections of his experience with magic. Lévi is adamant in his treatment of magic as a serious science and one compatible with Christianity, encouraging his readers to see magic as the reconciliation point between faith and reason, science and belief, authority and liberty. Extending to almost six hundred pages and with numerous illustrations, this book should appeal to those interested in the nineteenth-century obsession with mysticism and the occult
The key of the mysteries by Éliphas Lévi( Book )

Eliphas Le''vi was steeped in the Western occult tradition and a master of the Rosicrucian interpretation of the Qabalah, which forms the basis of magic as practiced in the West today.

It reveals the mysteries of religion and the secrets of the Qabalah, providing a sketch of the prophetic theology of numbers. The mysteries of nature, such as spiritualism and fluidic phantoms, are explored. Magical mysteries, the Theory of the Will with its 22 axioms are divulged. And finally

L'émancipation de la femme, ou, Le testament de la paria : ouvrage posthume by Flora Tristan( )

15 editions published between 1846 and 1976 in French and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frères, bannissez d'abord de votre cœur tout sentiment de haine et de vengeance! Si la société est mauvaise, tous les membres de la société en souffrent : et les oppresseurs ne sont pas moins malheureux que les opprimés. Si les hommes sont mauvais, c'est qu'ils ignorent encore le vrai bien, et que comme des enfants, ils s'asservissent aux cupidités animales. Sans doute qu'il faut s'unir pour résister au mal ; sans doute qu'il faut protester à toutes les heures et à tous les instants ; sans doute qu'il faut repousser la force injuste par la force de la justice. Mais que ce ne soit pas pour nous venger de ceux qui nous oppriment. Songeons plutôt à les délivrer de leur tyrannie, qui n'est pas moins lourde pour eux que n'est pour nous l'esclavage qu'ils nous imposent!

Dogme et rituel de la haute magie by Éliphas Lévi( )

Born Alphonse Louis Constant, French magician Éliphas Lévi (1810-75) wrote prolifically on the occult sciences. This highly popular two-volume treatise on practical magic attempts to initiate the reader into the mysteries of occult philosophy. Identifying magic as the 'nurse or godmother' of all intellectual forces, Lévi proclaims his firm belief in man as microcosm of the universe, the strength of human willpower and the effectiveness of sympathetic magic. This first volume, 'The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic', establishes Lévi's own philosophical approach to the theory of magic, detailing the various methods of accessing esoteric knowledge of the universe through supernatural methods. Beginning with the ancient origins of occult philosophy and influence, Lévi chronicles the history of magic, including transmutations, black magic, bewitchments, astrology, divination and alchemy
