Magick is a faculty of wonderful virtue, full of most high mysteries, containing the most profound Contemplation of most secret things, together with the nature, power, quality, substance, and virtues thereof, as also the knowledge of whole nature, and it doth instruct us concerning the differing, and agreement of things amongst themselves, whence it produced its wonderful effects, by uniting the virtues of things through the application of them one to the other, and to their inferior suitable subjects, joining and knitting them together thoroughly by the powers, and virtues of the superior Bodies. This is the most perfect and chief Science, that sacred and sublime kind of Philosophy, and lastly the most absolute perfection of all most excellent Philosophy. For seeing that all regulative Philosophy is divided into Natural, Mathematical, and Theological.

A veritable gold mine of information which no serious occultist can possibly do without having on the shelf. You will find yourself constantly going back to this book to research a great many number of topics. Donald Tyson should be congratulated for doing a fine job for his annotations which certainly flesh out the topics and help to make clear many of Agrippa's statements.

This is one of my absolute favourites. I love this comprehensive volume. If it occurs in magic, Agrippa has something to say about it.

The single most important book for the Western Esoteric Tradition. Agrippa's book is a complete reference on many aspects of magic and the occult, including astrology, geomancy, evocation, and alchemy. It is primarily a book of theory, but can be easily mined for practical ideas. The biggest problem that a lot of people have with "Three Books" is that, being written in a different cultural framework than our modern one, so a lot of archaic words and word definitions were used in the original English translation. This edition, edited and annotated by Donald Tyson, does not have that problem! Tyson has done a wonderful job of researching many of the ancient references and archaisms, as well as providing brief essays as appendices which explain many difficult concepts in more detail.
