Anyone who is interested in...this subject will find this book an invaluable reference, and they will be entertained. (Alec Ryrie, Times Higher Education)

Erudite and entertaining addition to book scholarship. (Jad Adams, The Guardian)

'Grimoires' is a beautifully produced, surprisingly inexpensive book with black end papers and suitably antique illustrations. (Jad Adams, The Guardian)

This book is undoubtedly a necessary reference work for anyone with a serious interest in the history of magic. (Brian Gibbons, BBC History Magazine)

This is a very well researched book. (Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph)
