The Book of Ceremonial Magic

Author: A.E. Waite
Format: Paperback (1913 Reprint)
Pages: 336
Features: Illustrations
Condition: NEW

Previously titled: "The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts" (1898) before being republished and re-titled in 1913.

A century after its debut, Waite's work remains among the best sources of information on occult subjects related to the study of the supernatural. Although the author does not condone the practice of black magic, he defends occult practitioners and praises the disciplines of astrology and alchemy. Modern readers will find this book an extraordinarily complete tour of the history of magic, replete with details of casting spells, conjuring spirits, and other occult practices.

Noted occult historian A. E. Waite created this meticulously researched survey in order to unite and interpret the scattered and often-inaccessible details of magical traditions. Part I contains essential passages from prominent magical texts dating from the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries; Part II analyzes these texts from a modern perspective.

Conclusion

Arthur Edward Waite (1857-1942)
Arthur Edward Waite (1857-1942), was an American-born British poet and scholarly mystic who wrote extensively on occult and esoteric matters, including divination, esotericism, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, ceremonial magic, Kabbalism, the holy grail, and alchemy. He is probably best known now as the co-creator of the Rider-Waite tarot deck.


Shortly after joining the Second Order of the Golden Dawn in 1899, he became a Freemason and received the Rectified Scottish Rite and its grade of Chevalier Bienfaisant. Waite believed that the Rectified Scottish Rite, more than any other Masonic Rite, represented the "Secret Tradition" of mystical spiritual illumination.
