Book Of Black Magic by A.E. Waite


The Book of Black Magic contains magical rituals and literature from rare books and even rarer manuscripts; material often written in ancient foreign languages and unavailable to the general public. Arthur Edward Waite has provided an authoritative, honest and authentic text for students who are interested in magical ritual, and for readers who are interested in the historical roots of ceremonial magic. Part one of the book discusses in detail the literature of ceremonial magic and contains an analytical and critical account of the chief magical rituals known to Waite. He focuses in particular on the rituals of transcendental magic, provides an important discussion on the distinctions between white and black magic, and discusses composite rituals: those rituals in which the fuzzy edges of white and black seem to overlap. Part two provides a complete grimoire of magical rituals, taken from their original sources in exact unabridged form. They include rituals of exorcism and purging, how to prepare for ritual, and the rites and mysteries of Goetic Theurgy, sorcery, and Infernal Necromancy.

Why did Waite call this The Book of Black Magic? "Let the transcendentalist assure the occult student that he is dealing herein with curious researches... [This work] deals, in a fairly exhaustive manner, with most extant rituals. These are all tainted with Black Magic in the same way that every idle word is tainted with the nature of sin."

This rich book of occult knowledge contains 328 pages and is bound in a soft cover.
