Format: Paperback
A Treatise on Angel Magic is a classic, exact, and complete transcription of a rare 17th century volume on Angel Magic. A primary source work of occult manuscripts, illustrated with black- and-white charts and diagrams, A Treatise on Angel Magic includes the hierarchies of fallen angels, evocation of the Nature Spirits, and John Dee's Enochian system of Angel conjuration. Concluding with Dr. Rudd's "Treatise on the Nine Hierarchies of Angels" and their conjuration to visible appearance, A Treatise on Angel Magic is one of the most thorough renditions of ancient manuscripts, and a "must-have" resource for anyone interested in angelology, whether a lay reader or a scholar.

Format: Paperback
When I bought this book I wasn't expecting a great deal, even though it was in the bibligraphy section of some notably good authors. Opening the pages however was a very rare treat. Adam Mclean has conjured up to visible appearance six manuscripts written by the seventeenth century magician Dr. Rudd. Not only has he re-produced these fascinating works, Adam Mclean delivers the work in a very elegant and enlightened manner.

He has read between the lies and has not fallen for the trappings of archaic and bothersome duality. In the introduction he reveals to us how and when Christianity cast it's dark shadow over magic. He tells us that although the information contained within Dr. Rudd's manuscripts is profoundly interesting, it is tainted by the dualism which the magicians of the time had been influenced by. A book called, "The Malleus Malleficarum, that tissue of lies and propaganda, dreamt up by two dominican inquisitors to justify their unwholesome imaginings". This book, tells Mclean is the reason why so many magicians (yes, even Crowley) were victims of paranoia, worrying incessantly about 'evil' spirits.

The six manuscripts hold some very interesting and useful information for magicians. Tables and diagrams taken from the original treat our eyes, and information on Enochiana, Schemhamphoras, magical hours, incubi and sucubi, and lots more are contained. At the back we have the original invocations for the nine hierarchies of angels, also contaning their seals etc, and also for the olympian spirits (the spirits of the planets).

It's been quite a while since I read a book on magic as good as this.

Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
The various books published by Adam McLean, mostly on alchemical subjects, were first self-published by the author in Scotland, and sold through his journal and website. Many of them were produced in quite limited runs, were often essentially pictorial in nature, and sometimes even hand-coloured by McLean himself. Much of this work is now reproduced on the Alchemy Website at levity.com. In the USA, these same titles were published by the Phanes Press, at Grand Rapids MI, to a higher professional standard.
The present book is advertised as a complete transcription of a late 17th century manuscript MS Harley 6482 in the British Library. This MS, a magical miscellany, belongs in a group of 6 manuscripts on various magical, astrological and alchemical subjects, copied by Peter Smart from originals owned by Dr Rudd or others of his circle.
The contents of the present volume are as follows:
Ten names of GOD, Anima mundi, Clavis tabulae sanctae, Characters of the 16 figures of geomancy, Seven Enochian tables, Schemhamphoras, Names of some of Solomon's spirits, Hours of the spirits, Angels good and bad, Incubi and succubi, Power and authority of necromancers and witches, Hobgoblins &c, Orders of wicked demons, Clavis Enochi tabularum, Astromantic and geomantic gamahes, Talismans, Clavis magicae (seu Enochi tabularum explanatio), Images of the fixed Behenian stars, Alphabet of the angels, Numbers, Little tables of the planets, Sun and moon, Anima mundi, Intelligences and demons, Mansions of the moon, More hobgoblins, Witches and enchanters, Devil, Dreams, Nymphs &c, Gnomes, Presaging, Nine hierarchies of angels in 6 sections.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives some good points of view and insights on different subjects of the occult. It gives the reader some clarification of old ways, Although does not give its complete application of mechanics it's still a good read.
