WORKS ON MAGIC
Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy

This work was added to Agrippa's Occult Philosophy after his death. Wier, his pupil, rejected it as a forgery.

In the 1650's, English scholar Robert Turner put together a collection of magickal papers from various sources under the title The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy.  Only two of the papers therein are purported to be by Agrippa, but all of them have had a strong influence on the Golden Dawn and other magicians in the English-speaking world.

The Heptameron is attributed to Peter of Abano, 1250-1316, but probably written in the sixteenth century as a supplement to the Fourth Book. Robert Turner translated this into English. It is a treatise for beginning magicians.

On Astronomical Geomancy -- by Gerard Cremonensis.  A simplified technique that produces a "horary chart" for the question being asked, which is then interpreted astrologically.

This work is the apparent origin of the widely-known "Olympic Planetary Spirits."  Discusses the necessities of magickal work, the relation between the magician and spirits, other topics of general import to magick.

The Philosophy of Natural Magic

by Henry Cornelius Agrippa. 

There are a couple of A.M.O.R.C. stamps in side the front cover (Rosicrucian Bro.) and there is a small quaint note typed on an antique typewriter pasted inside. It states: "This individual wrote in allegory and the reader must not accept his words just as they are written, but try to interpret them for the mystical meaning, or otherwise he will become confused. R.M.Lewis".)
