    Out of date, but stil contains some excelent material., May 16, 2002
    By 
    Simon Hibbs (London, England.) –

    Apparently published in 1920 or thereabouts, this very large volume contains a wealth of material. Lewis Spence was a prolific author and many of his books on Atlantis and various mythological traditions can still be obtained quite cheaply. Spnce was a contemporary of Crowley and th Golden Dawn and so this book contains no information on them. It is also hampered by Spence’s limited knowledge and understanding of foreign cultures and their history. Spence was a product of his time, and so are his boks.

    Nevertheless I keep finding myself coming back to this book. It has many excelent biographies of prominent occultists such as Cagliostro and Paracelsus, some running to 3 or 4 pages. Some major subjects, such as Astrology and Alchemy are also covered in lengthy sections. There are also many illustrations of varying quality. Also sometimes reprinted as “The Encyclopedia of the Occult”, there are many very affordable editions available.

    Definitely recommended.

    A great reference for amateurs and experts alike, November 10, 2000
    By 
    Arthur Kevin Rabago (Quezon City, NCR Philippines) –

    Despite it’s relative blandness (no illustrations and a boring font) This book is an interesting read (though some entries were not there i.e.: Glasya, troglodye, etc- but- you can’t have it all).

    Page after page you learn something new about your garden variety supaernatural occurences and characters and much more.

    This volume has the advantage of not being corrupted by the mass media perception of the occult.

    Definitely a book that I would not put down for a while.
