Despite the book's lack of index and reference guide. It does have a contents page. I don't think it was ever meant to be other than a brief introduction to Chaldean oracles . A quick one at that. It still makes for interesting reading especially about Hecate.
A Nibble, Not a Feast

This book is full of suggestiveness and tantalizing hints, like overhearing only half of a conversation, but unless you are already pretty well versed in theosophy and neoplatonism, much of it will be even more puzzling than the inherent obscurity of the material makes inevitble. My main gripe is that the print is so large, and the margins so generous, that if the actual text had been printed in a more standard format, the book, only 96 pages as is, would be a mid-size booklet. Plus, you don't find out until you get it that it is only volume two. The publishers seem determined to stratch out their material so as to give you the least material for your money, so despite the interest of what little there is, I feel a little cheated.

I would have expected more notes and an introduction.
Garbled Text, Sorely in Need of Revision

This is a reprint of the 1908 edition by G.R.S Mead, being just one volume in a series of seven texts entitled, Echoes of Gnosis. The content of this original volume is a fair reconstruction of the Chaldean Oracles, considering the advancements made in modern scholarship in the last hundred years, esp. after the discovery of the Nag Hammadi library in 1945. But the reprinting of this original text has done it no justice. The text has been formatted from a scanner and then printed in paperback and, as things go, the image never equals its original. It is recommended that the reader be guided to the Ruth Majercik critical edition (2013) with newly revised text and translation with commentary.

There are no page numbers and the reproduction from the original work by Mead appears to be incomplete as it does not correlate with the contents page. Amazon do not even give the date of their own publishing for reference purposes which makes it difficult for academic purposes.
