I bought this book by Sepharial published by Kessinger Legacy Reprints with much expectations.But to my utter surprise this turned out to be a shallow and brief basic explanation of Talismans, numbers and charms. With a few diagrams now being strewn around the net, and a basic account of Numbers and Kabala , this is no better than an article in ezinearticles.com.
I would never recommend for anyone this book at a whooping cost of INR 700/ ($14). One more lesson for the readers. .Research well before you buy any book on net. In a brick and mortar bookstall you could see the book and have a glimpse.
 

About the author (2004)

SEPHARIAL (1864-1929) was born Walter Richard Old in Birmingham, England. At the age of 22 he had a mystical experience and spent the rest of his life seeking his true self and trying to unravel the future through astrology and other methods. After a scrape with Blavatsky's Theosophical society he changed his name to Walter Gornold, though by the end of the 19th century he was better known as Sepharial. He produced six children and authored nearly 60 books. Sepharial was the first president of the British Astrological Society, and counted among his friends such people asH.P. Blavatsky, Alan Leo, and Charles Carter, who believed that Sepharial was more than a mere astrologer and brilliant at almost everything he touched.
