Many of her anecdotes about the hidden side of human nature and powers dealing with shamanism and magic are extremely interesting, though, it is not always possible to really define a reality with an illusion given the varying situations she describes. In one instance of a native being asked to stand up and be shot by experienced riflemen - one at point blank range - upon being fired at, the rifle blew up and the target escaped any injury whatsovever!
There are some irritations where the typeset has clearly been altered, leaving some page annotations at the end of sentences, not related to those in the book. If it was intended as cross referencing subject matter, elsewhere in other books by Ms. Blavatsky, then you will find you'll get lost!
However, I would recommend it as a good overall introduction (if perhaps a long one) to occult matters, it will certainly conjure up your imagination and perhaps spook you in places. Read it then put it in your Library for look-ins from time to time. Enjoy.
In fact it looks as if each page were misaligned in a photocopier except that the conversion should have been from text.
The title of the book is somewhat misleading. It was never intended to unveil the Egyptian goddess who here represents the wisdom imparted in secret to the pupils of the Ancient Mystery Schools. Blavatsky's original title was 'The Veil of Isis', through which shimmering vesture the neophyte was permitted to glimpse the lesser mysteries of the goddess...and no more. But when the book was being printed, it was discovered that the title had already been used by W. Winwood Reade in 1861 for his book on the mysteries of the Druids. The publisher suggested Blavatsky change her title to Isis Unveiled, to which she reluctantly agreed, though the various facsimiles of the first edition still bear her original, and more apt title, at the head of every page!
Isis Unveiled first made known to the modern world the existence of the once-universal Wisdom-Religion. In doing so, it not only demonstrated that modern science does NOT have all the answers, but that the ancients were in possession of hidden knowledge as yet undiscovered by ANY scientists.Read more ›
A rewarding book and thoroughly worth the time spent for those interested in the secrets behind alchemical principles and secret codes that were often only for the eyes of those elite few that were the chief religious interpreters of the past.

A certain stamina is required but it is worth while. The scope is vast, the subject abstruse and the rewards of perseverance are there for everyone who cares to read. Read morePublished on 23 Jun. 2014 by MARTYN CRAIG HUGHES
