Papus' book, now in English for the first time, is one of the foundational works of 19th-century occultism. First published in French in 1888, it was hugely influential. The English-speaking reader finally here has access to Papus' esoteric thought, which ranges from hermeticism to alchemy, from astrology to sacred geometry, and from kabbalah to symbolism.
This work affords a fascinating glimpse into the mind of one of France's most influential occult scholars, and is a must for anyone interested in the history of esoteric thought and its development.
