Occult, Magic & Witchcraft: An Exploration of Modern Sorcery

by Charles Olliver Author

An early 20th-century survey of western magic, from the origins of sorcery to occult symbols to corrupt demonology. Magic's meaning, its relationship with religion and spiritualism, the hidden histories behind superstitions, and the science of metaphysics are all carefully considered here. This is an abridged edition of Charles Olliver's seminal early 1928 classic The Handbook of Magic & Witchcraft.
