Picatrix Books I & II: Astrological Magic
Picatrix, known in Arabic as the Ghayat al-Hikam, the Goal of the Wise, is the most important grimoire of astrological magic. Written in Arabic circa AD 1000 and translated into Latin in 1256, the Picatrix explains both the philosophy and practice involved in the creation of astrological talismans. This clear and coherent English translation of books I & II of the four books of the Pingree critical edition of the Latin Picatrix is a key text for both the practitioner and scholar of medieval and Renaissance magic and includes instructions for hundreds of talismans for love, wealth, health, success and protection.
