this is interesting, if not a little amusing in parts...it gives a good insight into how easily spooked people where about occult matters in the beginning of the 19th century. it has a valuable section on talismans, with symbolism borrowed from zodiacal and kabbalistic circles. I think it even makes some use of the Lemegeton of Solomon for some of the finer points about ritualistic magic in the kabbalah section. Barret also includes a full but somewhat peotic depiction of basic alchemical philosophy, and also what he terms Natural magic (i guess this is something to do with druidism, wicca ???) This makes a good reference book, if not simply becasue so many half-wit new age freaks seem to refer to it continuously in their own works. at least this way you can check their references...

The content of this book is taken without additions but with omissions from Agrippa's "The Three Books of Occult Philosophy", with all errors from the original book and without mentioning the original author. Still it may be easier to read because it is smaller than original Agrippa's book. But beware of erros.

Barrets work is excellant. The language is old english and should prove to be one of the forefront referances I have on my shelf. Not many older works such as this have been published, so this is a rare opportunity for anyone with a few bucks to get a fascimle of this founding work. Only by examining the past can we come to an understanding of the future.
