The art of memory by Frances A Yates( Book )

141 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,223 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
Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic tradition by Frances A Yates( Book )

127 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emphasizing the primary importance of Hermetism in Renaissance thought, Yates demonstrates that Bruno was at once a rational philosopher and a magician--burned at the stake--with an orthodox religious message. Her acclaimed study gives an overview not only of Renaissance humanism but its interplay--and conflict--with magic and occult practices.--book cover
The Rosicrucian enlightenment by Frances A Yates( Book )

107 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,613 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.)
