The Fourth Book of Occult Philosiphy In the 1650's, English scholar Robert Turner put together a collection of magickal papers from various sources under the title The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy.

Transcribed directly from a copy of his edition. Sections will be posted as they are completed.

Transcendental Magic Eliphas Levi's tour de force on the theory and practice of magic. Part 1 covers theory, and attempts to reconcile the traditional interpretations of magic and religion with the emphasis on Reason and Knowledge of Levi's own day. The reconciliation doesn't succeed, but Levi's understanding of the traditional viewpoint is strong enough to make this work valuable. Part II covers the practical aspects of magic.
