Originally published in 1901, this classic work is the perfect introduction to the Egyptian mysteries.

Ideal for the layman, it sums up all that is known about magic Ancient Egypt: the role of magic in controlling the gods and warding off evil spirits, scarabs of immortality, the use of wax images, formulas and spells, the secret names and much, much more.
