KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of over 70 books in this field, the Sirdar here correlates a sizeable body of arcane fact concerning the symbols and practices of occultism. From the magician- his rites and vestments and implements, this goes on to necromancy and the Black Mass, the Hoptameron of Peter de Abano, demonology, sorcery, white and black magic, the devil; spells, alchemy, conjuration, possession and exorcism. There is a brief description of the derivation and development of each phase, and line illustrations and diagrams facilitate identification.... For the student, or the initiate, but beyond that- it's difficult to find the tallsman to a general audience.
