If statements such as "His origin is obscure, but early legends concerning [Merlin] agree that he was the offspring of Satan." would cause you to doubt the quality of Mr. Spence's research, then this book is not for you. On the other hand, if you can accept that some entries in this 90+ year old publication contain information that conflicts with New Age conceptions or might otherwise be considered passe, you will not find a more wide-ranging and scholarly treatment of the occult anywhere.

Information giving in this book is incorrectly written. Sounds more like a Christian point of view. Wiccan's are NOT devil worshipers, and Merlin was not a child of Satan. This book was not researched when written.
