This vintage book contains a fascinating treatise on the subject of magic by Franz Hartmann (1838 – 1912), who was a German theosophist, doctor, geomancer, occultist, writer, and astrologer. In this volume, Hartmann maintains that ‘magic’ is not a supernatural concept outside of the realms of science or nature, but that it is the undeniable force behind all things responsible for the growing of a seed into a tree or a child into a man. This fascinating volume will appeal to those with an interest in magic or the occult, and it would make for a worthy addition to allied collections. Contents include: “Description Of The Frontispiece”, “Preface To The Third Edition”, “Preface”, “Preface To The Sixth Edition”, “Preface To”, “The Seventh Edition”, “Introduction the Ideal”, “The Real and the Unreal”, “Form”, “Life”, “Harmony”, “Illusion”, “Consciousness”, “Death”, “Transformations”, “Creation”, “Light”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
