“Simply put. this is the most beautiful and complete occult book ever published. It represents a lifetime of research into the mythology. symbolism, and magical practices of countless cultures.

From the secrets of Isis to the teachings of mystic Christianity. Nearly every occult dogma imaginable is represented here. The book is full of giant illustrations, some of which fold out into a magnificent two-page splendor.

This is the definitive guide to secret societies, famous figures. and more — a must for every personal library.”
