The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Divination: A Practical Guide to the Systems That Can Reveal Your Destiny
Virtually all cultures have used divination to seek advice or help from unseen forces, though the methods have differed. Karcher (Elements of the I Ching, Element, 1995) gives a colorful historical overview of the practices from many lands and times, including runes, tarot, dowsing, numerology, tea leaves, and more obscure rituals involving bones and spiders. A solid bibliography points readers to monographs on particular topics ; the index allows users to locate information specific to a country, symbol, or rite ; and a brief glossary is also included. Practitioners of the divination arts will need more depth, but libraries without a treatment of this subject (e.g., Divining the Future, Facts on File, 1995) will find this a readable and comprehensive choice.
