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

A modern layout and typeset for all three book books, as well as their more contentious counterpart the "Fourth Book" of Occult Philosophy. Our source material includes four original 16th century manuscripts in Latin, & two original printings of the "Fourth Book" in English that we used to compile the corresponding volume. Each of these original manuscripts is available to download. We drew from the 17th century English translation, and used the source material to cross-check the original Latin source and included omissions and errors when they were encountered. However, these occurrences were negligible. The entire work was cross-examined between the original Latin and the 17th century translation page by page. Surprisingly few errors were made, and the translation - even in 17th century English - is enduring, and quite easy to read. Omissions and the occurrence of manuscript inconsistencies is another matter altogether. When these small anomalies appear, we made sure to inform the reader and offer both the original manuscript content side-by-side with the English translation in order to inform the reader and eliminate any confusion. The result, is the most complete printing of Agrippa's treatise in English, and quite likely in any form whatsoever. The inclusion of the "Fourth Book" was not our intention upon the outset of this project, but were later convinced that it had it's place in this volume, regardless of it's credibility. Agrippa's Four Books is a hefty volume at 830 pages, but it is complete, and would make a fine addition to your library.
