Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1860 as Histoire de la Magie, this English edition was translated by A. E. Waite in 1913. Long established as the most valuable source on the tradition of magic and occultism, History of Magic is now available as a Weiser classic in a new, enlarged edition. Described by Waite as "the most arresting, entertaining and brilliant of all studies on the subject, " the text provides a complete survey of the occult sciences, from Biblical references, and Zoroaster to Hermetic Magic, and the Kabbalah. The author also explores magical rites and dogmas from various civilizations and discusses some famous sorcerers and magicians. Other topics explored include Magic of the Magi, Magic in India, Mysticism, Magic and Christianity, and the sources of Freemasonry.
