3.0 su 5 stelle Great author, bad printer. 1 agosto 2014
Di Organelle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The book contents are great. Joseph Peterson writes some of the best books on the occult. That said the printers really dropped the ball on this one. My cover came with a huge bump in it because they didn't press out the excess glue in the binding. The book also had 3 dead bugs in it which left holes in the pages upon removal of the bugs. Additionally, there were ink bleeds on many of the pages.

Long story short, the content is great, but the printers and storage facility didn't do Mr. Peterson any favors with such poor craftsmanship at a premium price for a paperback.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very interesting read! 31 maggio 2009
Di Christopher R. Travers - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book seems to represent a sort of magical diary of Dr John Dee (Elizabeth I's court astrologer) as regards his experience summoning angelic spirits. It is an interesting read whether or not one is interested in actually trying any of Dee's experiments.

This also provides a great deal of context to other Enochian works as well as a useful read to anyone interested in speculating on the psychodynamics of these sorts of things.

At the same time, this is not by itself a practical book. Here you don't find descriptions of exactly what was said or done, just records of results. It is mostly interesting to my mind as to how it lets us look inside the thoughts of Dee.

A word about the transliterations, etc. Peterson does not normalize the spellings in this work and the tradeoff is that of readability for atmosphere and accuracy. While I agree with this tradeoff, the book cannot be read quite quickly and it can be difficult to get used to immediately. The book is written in extremely early modern English, and seems to be to my mind just barely on this side of the great vowel shift that separates Middle from Modern English (actually the great vowel shift was ongoing at the time but I think we can safely put Dee on the Modern English side of it). It makes for interesting reading though.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very well done 6 gennaio 2006
Di L. Giliberto - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you are interested in John Dee, "behind the scenes" of Enochian, Medieval/Renaissance philosophy or occult matters, this is a must have.

The editor did a great job of making the texts readable and clear in the layout. The footnotes (including explanatory, reference, and translation of the Latin parts) are extremely useful to the understanding of the text and related texts that Dee had access to.

The introductory information written by the editor is short and straightforward, and also fairly objective.

The book contains the 5 Books of Mystery that were found after Dee's death. These books provide a clear insight into the goings on around the Skrying done by Dee and Kelly; they are a journal or set of lab notes on what went on at each session detailing what was seen in the crystal as well as how the "angels" taught them to render the Sigilum Dei, the tables, and a few other things.

Whether you believe Dee actually talked with angels or not, this is a great insight into an Elizabethan Mage's project. A must have for anyone interested in such subject matter for whatever reasons.

5.0 su 5 stelle A must have for collectors! 31 marzo 2011
Di Bully J. Pulpit - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Excellent book...one of a kind. If you are interested in studying or collecting old occult texts then I recommend purchasing Joseph H. Peterson's translations of this and several other books. His translations are vastly superior to any that have come before...I only wish they had a hardbound edition. This edition was published by Weiser books, while many of his other works are published by IBIS, I recommend checking them out. IBIS has beautiful hardcover editions of The Sixth and Seventh books of Moses, Arbatel, and The Clavis or Key to the Magic of Solomon, all of them are amazing prints. If the material interests you then you will not be disappointed.
