The book of ceremonial magic : including the rites and mysteries of Goëtic theurgy, sorcery, and infernal necromancy by Arthur Edward Waite( Book )

23 editions published between 1911 and 2017 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Edward Waite writes ""The Book of Ceremonial Magic"" as a newer and more accurate edition of his previous title ""The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts, "" written in 1898. As most ancient texts on magical literature are rare and hard to come by, it becomes very difficult for modern scholars to ascertain an accurate knowledge of ancient spells and rituals. Waite responds to this lack of accessible literature and approaches this text as a methodical and systematic account of magical procedures of the past. He remains faithful to the original sources before making any conclusions by way

Now first done into English from the Latin original published at Frankfort in the year 1678; containing twenty-two most celebrated chemical tracts by Arthur Edward Waite( Book )

37 editions published between 1893 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"THE HERMETIC MUSEUM RESTORED AND ENLARGED was published in Latin at Frankfort, in the year 1678, and, as its title implies, it was an enlarged form of an anterior work which, appearing in 1625, is more scarce, but, intrinsically, of less value. Its design was apparently to supply in a compact form a representative collection of the more brief and less ancient alchemical writers; in this respect, it may be regarded as a supplement to those large storehouses of Hermetic learning such as the Theatrum Chemicum, and that scarcely less colossal of Mangetus, the Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa, which are largely concerned with the cream of the archaic literature, with the works of Geber and the adepts of the school of Arabia, with the writings attributed to Hermes, with those of Raymond Lully, Arnold de Villa Nova, Bernard Trevisan, and others." p. [4] of cover
