The art of memory by Frances Amelia Yates( Book )
168 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: One of Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century. In this classic study of how people learned to retain vast stores of knowledge before the invention of the printed page, Frances A. Yates traces the art of memory from its treatment by Greek orators, through its Gothic transformations in the Middle Ages, to the occult forms it took in the Renaissance, and finally to its use in the seventeenth century. This book, the first to relate the art of memory to the history of culture as a whole, was revolutionary when it first appeared and continues to mesmerize readers with its lucid and revelatory insights

The Rosicrucian enlightenment by Frances Amelia Yates( Book )
79 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the early seventeenth century two manifestos were published which proclaimed, in terms of magic, alchemy and the Cabala, the dawn of a new age of increased knowledge and power over nature. These anonymous documents (reproduced in the appendix to this work) were written on behalf of 'the Fraternity of the Rose Cross'. Ever since, this mysterious movement has been the subject of endless fascination, speculation and intrigue. In this book, Frances Yates reveals the truth about the 'Rosicrucian Enlightenment' and its impact on Europe's political and cultural history. She transforms, for instance, our understanding of the origins of modern science by placing in the context of an occult tradition key figures such as Descartes, Bacon, Kepler and Newton."--Google Books (Routledge new 2002 ed.)
