1929. This book does not attempt to deal with magic as an art: it merely aims at presenting in popular form the chief accounts of magical practices to be found recorded in the writings of ancient Greek and Roman authors. Numerous references are given throughout, in the hope that those who wish to pursue the subject further, and in greater detail, may derive benefit therefrom. Contents: development of magic; magic in practice; necromancy; deities invoked by magicians; famous exponents of magic: Medea, Circe, Simaetha, Alphesibceus' Sorceress; Canidia, Erichtho, Pamphile, other witches.
