The Occult Philosophy.

Judicious Reader: This is true and sublime Occult Philosophy. To

understand the mysterious influences of the intellectual world upon the

celestial, and of both upon the terrestrial; and to know how to dispose and

fit ourselves so as to he capable of receiving the superior operations of

these worlds, whereby we may be enabled to operate wonderful things by a

natural power—to discover the secret counsels of men, to increase riches,

to overcome enemies, to procure the favor of men, to expel diseases, to preserve

health, to prolong life, to renew youth, to foretell future events, to

see and know things done many miles off, and such like as these. These

things may seem incredible, yet read but the ensuing treatise and thou

Shalt see the possibility confirmed both by reason and example.

—J. F., the translator of the English edition of 1651.
