Well Written but Archaic

The information contained in the book is the source material for many of the great Wiccan authors on Candle Magic. The most prominent example is Raymond Buckland in "Practical Candleburning Rituals", then strong glimmers come through in Scott Cunningham (see pages 101-104 of "Earth Power") and then there are strong hints in D.J. Conway's "A Little Book of Candle Magic".
The Master Book of Candle Burning probably would appeal to someone, spiritually, of a past era. However, the book needs to be on the shelf of serious Wiccan and magical students for historical study and to delve into systems and intricacies of the layouts.
