The Occult Sciences

The subject of occultism, by which we mean those sciences, called transcendental and magical, a knowledge of which has been transmitted and accumulated in secret, or is contained in books that have an inner or secret meaning, has been very fully dealt with in this volume. The results of many studies were condensed into this portable volume, which conducts the inquirer into the vestibule of each branch of “ the occult sciences,” and places within his reach the proper means of prosecuting his researches further in any desired direction.
