PREFACETHE first edition of this volume has been commended and criticised by the public. Itwas admitted to be a valuable compendium of the curiosities of literature generally,and especially of that pertaining to magic, but that it was at the same time calculatedto foster superstition, and thereby promote evil—a repetition of the charge madeagainst the honorable HORST, the publisher of a magical library.In our enlightened age, the unprejudiced will observe in the publication of such a work,only what the author claims, namely, a contribution in reference to the aforesaid litera-ture and culture of no trifling merit; but in regard to the believer also, the issue of acheap edition will be more serviceable than the formerly expensive productions on sor-cery, which were only circulated in abstract forms and sold at extortionate rates. Whatother practical value the above named edition may possess is not the question. Let usnot, therefore, underrate this branch of popular literature; the authors wrote in accor-dance with a system which was, or at least, seemed clear to them, and illustrious per-sons, in all ages and climes have not considered the labor requisite to fathom the mys-teries of magic as labot expended in vain, and although they condemned the form,they could not deny the possibility or even fact that gifted men, of inherent worth, couldaccomplish such wonderful things.In regard to the present edition it can only be said, that the so-called Sixth andSeventh Books of Moses, which have for several centuries attracted the popular faith,is reality in accordance with an old manuscript (the most legible among many), andgiven word for word, divested only of orthographical errors which the best interest of lit-erature demand—with unerring fidelity. The publisher guarantees that not one syllablehas been added. ______________________
