Publisher Comments:

Now you can learn from the original, most important source for magic in the Western world that has ever been published, when you get Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy.

This massive volume was originally published in 1531, and occultists have been drawing on it ever since. Now, Llewellyn is proud to produce the first complete reprint of the original English translation in the last 500 years. Donald Tyson edited this work and removed the hundreds of errors that appeared in the original translation. He also fully annotated the work, to make it understandable--and usable--by people today.

-Discover what the Renaissance scholar knew about astrology, medicine, history, herbs, geography, animals, angels, devils, Witches, charms, the weather, and a host of other subjects

-Gain immediate reference to a vast amount of arcane, but completely annotated, magical material

-Find corrected drawings of seals, sigils, and magic squares, and correctly represented geomantic figures

-Explore the practical Kabbalah, geomancy, the magic squares, the elements, the humors, and the Soul of the World

-Consult the new Biographical dictionary for background on each of the hundreds of writers and historical figures referred to by Agrippa

-Consult the new Geographical Dictionary for data on referenced rivers, mountains, nations, cities--many of which now carry different names.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the most complete repository of pagan and Neoplatonic magic ever compiled. This book is packed with material you will not find elsewhere, including copious extracts on magic from obscure or lost works by Pythagoras, Ptolemy, Plato, Aristotle, and many others. Tyson's detailed annotations clarify difficult references and provide origins of quotations, even expanding upon them in many cases, in order to make Agrippa's work more accessible to the modern reader.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the ultimate how-to for magical workings. It describes how to work all manner of divinations and natural and ceremonial magic in such clear and useful detail that it is still the guide for modern techniques. The extensive new supplementary material makes this wisdom practical for use today.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is an essential reference tool for all students of the occult. Get your copy today.

Synopsis:

Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the single most important text in the history of Western occultism. Occultists have drawn upon it for five centuries, although they rarely give it credit. First published in Latin in 1531 and translated into English in 1651, it has never been reprinted in its entirety since. Photocopies are hard to find and very expensive. Now, for the first time in 500 years, Three Books of Occult Philosophy will be presented as Agrippa intended.

Synopsis:

The editor, Donald Tyson has corrected the errors in the original translation and clarified the more obscure material making it as practical today as it was 500 years ago.
