This is a 19th century text drawing from various sources (including, and perhaps primarily, but not only Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy). It is part manual, part overview for the Victorian occultist and covers various topics such as "Natural Magic," "Alchymy," "Cabalistic Magic," and "Magnetism."
Also, I bet you had no idea how useful menstrual blood could be. That shit is like the duct tape of magic. Works in applications ranging from bears to cornfields.
Also also, I very much enjoyed the advice given to those who want to make a philosopher's stone (the book presumes that gold is a major motivation here), part of which is that one should not desire too much gold. Delightful.
Anyway the book is about Christian folk magic. It doesn't hold up against the advances in science since the book was written. Its pretty boring as well. I did buy me a Jupiter Medallion. I use it as a key chain.
