Witchcraft, Magic and Alchemy
By Emile Grillot de Givry
From raising the dead and foretelling the future to possession, curses, Kabbalah, alchemy, and more, this historical tour of the occult offers a captivating exploration of sorcery and ceremonial magic. Prepared by a noted French historian, it ventures into virtually all of the classical arts, with 375 high-quality black-and-white illustrations derived from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, and architecture, as well as a vast body of literature that includes many rare and beautiful manuscripts from private collections.
A noted scholar of the occult, Grillot de Givry was a prolific author whose works include Pacts with Demons, Spells, and The Punishment of Sorcerers.
