About this work

Description

The ancient magic art of charming by enchantment, as practised by Chaldean, Egyptian, Jew, Indian, Greek, Roman, Norse, Gnostic, Knights Templar, and mediaeval enchanters. Collected from papyri, rare manuscripts, and occult books, with Introductory, and a Resumé of Hunting, Fishing and Popular charms. Two typescripts, dated 1921 and 1929. In the second copy the date has been altered from 1921 to 1929. This copy also has an added line to the title, which here begins 'A new light on the occult'. Inside the cover of the later copy is pasted the upper part of a sheet of the author's note-paper, headed 'Abbotsford. 57 Devonshire Road. Merton. S.W.19'. It contains a note in red ink 'Manuscript, when done with to be returned to Julius Kohn'. On the verso of the title-page in this copy, there is pasted in a cut-out coloured illustration of an Egyptian Queen on a throne. Produced in London.
