About the Author

With the permission of Divine Providence, the spirit of a high Hermetic adept entered the body of a fourteen-year-old boy named Franz Bardon (1924-1958), destined to become one of the most remarkable magicians of the 20th century. Bardon wrote an entire series of books on Hermetics, starting with Initiation into Hermetics, The Practice of Magical Evocation and The Key to the True Kabbalah.

Format: Hardcover
The trilogy of books by the Master Franz Bardon are unparalleled in the world of magick. What Crowley could not do, Master Bardon does. Instead of bragging about himself like Crowley, Master Bardon gets directly to the matter of making Hermetic science accessible to ALL. The first book explained the basic techniques and theory of magick. This second volume described the Solar Hierarchy of Intelligences and beings that are part of our universe. With the same care and delicacy, Master Bardon explains in theory then goes direct into practice. There are no blinds, tricks, or games like Crowley, but direct and to the point information. Master Bardon takes the student step by step just as in his first book, in order to have a successful evocation. The book is rich in information and theory even if you decide not to pursue the path of magick, the knowledge contained in this volume makes it priceless. For those students who want to actually practice Magick, get all of Bardon's books, you will not regret it.

I am a Hermetic and full heartedly recommend all of Franz Bardon's books. I would also suggest that you read and practice the magical exercises in Bardon's Initiation into Hermetics, before reading his book on magical evocation. Otherwise, you may not understand it or fully apprreciate the information he gives. TO JILL WITH LOVE: Memoirs of a Modern Day Mystic

Format: Hardcover
I first came accross this book at Strands in New York City.
This book contains intricate detail about preparing for ceremonial magick evocations.
The context deserves no less than 5 stars.
Not only does it describe each step you need to take in order to prepare for serious evocations,
but it contains spitit sigils for the energies or intelligences girdling the earth, as well as planetary ones
and what each of their offices holds.
I have had no personal success with any of the sigils or intelligences during evocations, but not to say there
wasn't some 'form' which appeared. The nature of the beings were raw, ancient energies and they are not something
to be trifled with.
This is a great book to add to any occult collection and it is on my 'choice list.'
I believe this is a book to read a few times before embarking on any techniques.
Enjoy!

We've had our copy of this book...
dear ceremonial magicians,
... for over thirty-five years and remember the very first time we encountered it in a bookstore and felt at the time both a sense of wonder and of deja vu. It makes magic come alive and, in coordination with his other two books in this trilogy, is a great guide both for the aspiring magician and the advanced practitioner. We have, over the years, summoned a number of these spirits with great success. In fact, we are still experiencing the positive effects of some workings we evoked over 25 yrs ago. These spirits also guided us to create our own Book of Spirits, so the use of this book is like opening a door into whole new realms of magic evolving according to the individual needs and desires of the magician. In that sense, this book becomes unique for each individual. We highly recommend this text.
kyela,
the silver elves

Do you truly want to understand who you are? this is but the quest you must take in order to know yourself. In the glory of the Creator may one find fulfillment in the knowing. Franz Bardon helps guide you through the practices in order that you may continue your work. For centuries institutions, groups, individuals would hunt down and murder individuals, groups that performed there work. In doing so they stole and hide Alchemy from the masses for a select few creating a hierarchy within there own systems across Europe and elsewhere. For those who judge may be loved by the Creator.
