      Three Books of Occult Philosophy or Magic

      Natural Magic, Which Includes the Early Life of Agrippa, His Seventy-Four Chapters on Natural Magic, New Notes, Illustrations, Index, and Other Original and Selected Matter

      by Henry Cornelius Agrippa

      Volume 1

      Review


      Agrippa Von Nettesheim was a counselor to Charles the fifth, Emperor of Germany and judge of the prerogative court. Throughout his life, he held a deep interest in the occult and magic, which led to writing a lengthy series of books on this topic. In the first volume of Three Books of Occult Philosophy or Magic, Von Nettesheim discusses a wide range of concepts in occult beliefs, mythology, and magic. And he has plenty to say: with 74 chapters of content, numerous illustrations to cultivate greater understanding of content, and a hefty index for curious readers, this book has the feel of a magic encyclopedia or reference book.

      The book begins with a lengthy exploration of the life and magical contributions of Cornelius Agrippa, a magician from the 1500s. Von Nettesheim's respect for this man is blatant in his exploration of the mystic lore and elaborate system of magic Agrippa created. Both men share a deep interest in "natural magic" and this commonality drives much of the rest of the book. Von Nettesheim spends a tremendous amount of time exploring the key tenets of "natural magic": the connections between nature and the human mind; the connections between nature and the human body; and the connections between the human mind and the human body.

      Three Books of Occult Philosophy or Magic, Vol. 1 explores an incredible world of myth and magic. It would be an interesting read for anyone intrigued by magic, the history of magic, occultism, Cornelius Agrippa, Natural Magic, or historical accounts from the nineteenth century. A powerful beginning to this series as Von Nettesheim establishes a great beginning to what promises to be an interesting and in-depth exploration of magic across several books.

      Excerpt


      The life of Agrippa, up to the time of writing his Occult Philosophy, is also given, drawn mostly from Henry Morley 's excellent life of Cornelius Agrippa.

      That part of the volume credited to Mr. Morley may be designated as an honest Skeptic's contribution to Mysticism, and his chapters are produced entire, as justice to both him and Agrippa cannot be done other wise, and they are an especially valuable part of Mys tic literature.

      The table of the Cabala, newly compiled for this volume, will be found to possess superior features over all others.
