1. The Art and Meaning of Magic
2. A Qabalistic Primer
4. The Qabalah of Number and Meaning
5. The Art of True Healing
In all this book is 160 pages.
A couple of these essays are reprinted on the 'net, but the desirable Meditation essay, along with an astute collection of recommended readings, remains largely unavailable, and unreprinted.
Desirable as such, "Foundations of Practical Magic" would make a tremendously useful volume, were it enlarged and enriched to include ( not too irrational suggestion) the texts of a couple of Regardie's hard-to-get o/p books: "A Practical Guide to Geomantic Divination." and "How to Make and Use Talismans." Perhaps we can encourage Aquarian Press, or whoever, to do so...
Last, but not least, it should be noticed: "The Art of True Healing," the fifth and last essay contained in this book, has since been reissued with material from Marc Allen (see reviews.)
Perhaps the most useful and important essay from Regardie - not only in this book, but from all his writings - it is not to be ignored, and is particularly to be recommended, especially to those just starting this path.
