A prodigious treasury of original documents and long-buries texts revealing the secrets of the ancient sciences and the authentic iconography of occultism which has heretofore never been collected together.
Grillot de Givry, a recognized scholar on the subject, has compiled and explained more than 360 pictures chosen from the most curious and rare of illustrated works on sorcery, magic, astrology, cheiromancy, cartomancy and alchemy, including works in manuscripts and incanubala form. The selected sources range from the Middle Ages to the eve of the Nineteenth Century and include among other hidden subjects the Preparation for the Sabbath, the Jewish and Christian Cabbalists, the Curative Virtues of the Invisible Forces and the Laboratories of the Alchemists and of the Puffers. The visions and studies of such masters as Paracelsus, Robert Fludd, Jakob Boehme and the Comte de Saint-Germaine are examined. Depictions of the Temptation of St. Anthony, the Witches Cauldron, the Magic Circle, Exorcism, the Sepherotic Tree, the Hermetic Apotheosis, Mesmer’s Magnetic Tub, the Cosmic Furnace and hundreds of others illuminate the most abstruse doctrines with a commentary of instant lucidity.
