John Dee: The World of an Elizabethan Magus - Peter French

£27.99Price

First published in 1972,  is an authoritative biography of the Eliabethan magus. It looks at John Dee's magic, not only its concepts but also upon the adventures and misadventures which arose from his esoteric work. It also treats Dee in the context of his work in science, geography, antiquarianism, theology, and the fine arts -- all  fields in which Dee was involved.  Dee was at the centre of great affairs and had a profound influence on major developments in sixteenth-century England. Peter French's biography places this extraordinary individual within his proper historical context, describing the whole world of Renaissance science, Platonism, and Hermetic magic.

Abingdon, UK: Routledge, 2002. Paperback, 243 pages. New.
