The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy

The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, by Henry Cornelius Agrippa and unnamed others, is considered one of the cornerstones of Western magic, and the grimoires it contains are among the most important that exist in the Western tradition. For more than three hundred years, this mysterious tome has been regarded as difficult or even impossible to understand—until now. Occult scholar Donald Tyson presents a fully annotated, corrected, and modernized edition of Stephen Skinner's 1978 facsimile edition of the original work, which was six tracts published as one volume in 1655. For the first time, these classic works of Western magic have been rendered fully accessible to the novice practitioner, as well as occult scholars and skilled magicians. Tyson presents clear instruction and practical insight on a variety of magic techniques, providing contemporary magicians with a working grimoire of the arcane. - Astrology - History - Geomancy - Ceremonial Magic - The Nature of Spirits, Angels, and Demons - Geomantic Astronomy - Necromancy - Invocation and Evocation of Spirits

This classic work of Renaissance esoteric-by German magician and alchemist HEINRICH CORNELIUS AGRIPPA (1486-1535), one of the important figures in the occult history and philosophy of Europe-is vital reading for anyone fascinated by the Jewish Kabbalah, Christian mysteries, and other arcane traditions. This replica of an 1897 edition, featuring all the original charts and illustrations, reveals Agrippa's understanding of the mysteries of magic, the elements, the heavens, the natural and occult virtues of all things, and much more.

Magick is a faculty of wonderful virtue, full of most high mysteries, containing the most profound Contemplation of most secret things, together with the nature, power, quality, substance, and virtues thereof, as also the knowledge of whole nature, and it doth instruct us concerning the differing, and agreement of things amongst themselves, whence it produced its wonderful effects, by uniting the virtues of things through the application of them one to the other, and to their inferior suitable subjects, joining and knitting them together thoroughly by the powers, and virtues of the superior Bodies. This is the most perfect and chief Science, that sacred and sublime kind of Philosophy, and lastly the most absolute perfection of all most excellent Philosophy. For seeing that all regulative Philosophy is divided into Natural, Mathematical, and Theological.
