Three Books Of Occult Philosophy - Cornelius Agrippa
Edited and Annotated by Donald Tyson
The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the most complete repository of pagan and Neoplatonic magic ever compiled. This book is packed with material you will not find elsewhere, including copious extracts on magic from obscure or lost works by Pythagoras, Ptolemy, Plato, Aristotle, and many others. Tyson's detailed annotations clarify difficult references and provide origins of quotations, even expanding upon them in many cases, in order to make Agrippa's work more accessible to the modern reader.

This massive volume was originally published in 1531, and occultists have been drawing on it ever since. Donald Tyson edited this work and removed the hundreds of errors that appeared in the original translation to produce the first complete reprint of the original English translation in the last 500 years. He also fully annotated the work, to make it understandable―and usable―by people today.
