He had a deep impact on the magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and later on the ex-Golden Dawn member Aleister Crowley. Its famous opening lines present the single essential theme of occultism and gives some of the flavor of its atmosphere: "behind the veil of all the hieratic and mystical allegories of ancient doctrines, on the crumbling stones of old temples and on the blackened visage of the Assyrian or Egyptian sphinx, behind the darkness and strange ordeals of all initiations, in the monstrous or marvelous paintings which interpret to the faithful of India the inspired pages of the Vedas, in the ruins of Nineveh or Thebes, in the ceremonies practised at reception by all secret societies, under the seal of all sacred writings, in the cryptic emblems of our old books on alchemy, there are found indications of a doctrine which is everywhere the same and everywhere carefully concealed.

Lévi's study of magic is an absolute must for every seeker in occult, esoteric, and druidic realms; but this need has been frustrated by dated and inaccurate translations--until now. Filling a huge gap in our spiritual culture, here--at last--is a comprehensive and elegant translation of the 1854 French masterwork of occult philosophy.
The doctrine and ritual of high magic reignited the esoteric spiritual search in the West and led to the emergence of Madame Blavatsky, Manly P. Greer, a respected occult scholar, and Mikituk, a masterful translator, collaborate to restore this landmark work--complete with its original illustrations and symbols--to the center of the alternative spiritual canon.

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage Dover OccultDover Publications - This quest is in itself as fascinating as the similar tours of Gurdjieff. The high point of abraham's travels was found in a small town on the banks of the Nile, where he encountered the great magician Abramelin, whose complete system Abraham thereupon sets out in detail. Specific instructions are offered to develop such powers as clairvoyance, transportation, warding off evil magic, reading minds, divining metals and treasures, rendering oneself invisible, healing illness, working black magic, placing compulsions, creating illusions and glamour, levitation, and a host of other abilities.
We do not guarantee that abramelin's techniques work, nor that the results are desirable, but we offer this as a genuine medieval course in magic, one of the most important books in the history of occultism. This amounts to a complete course in ceremonial magic both white and black, which the student can pursue by himself.
