Graesse, Johann Georg Theodor. BIBLIOTHECA MAGICA ET PNEUMATICA: Oder, Wissenschaftlich Geordnete Bibliographie der Wichtigsten in das Gebiet des Zauber-, Wunder-, Geister- und Sonstigen Aberglaubens Vorzüglich älterer Zeit Einschlagenden Werke.
Cloth. pp.[iii].iv.176. Leipzig: W. Englemann, 1843.
The basis for "magic" was realized, the very moment when humans discovered and recognized the thought processes needed to accomplish an act of deception or trickery. Exactly when this occurred is unknown. The definition of "magic" by todays standards (according to Webster) is: Mag·ic 'maj-ik n. 1) The art of persons who claim to be able to do things by the help of supernatural reatures or by their own knowledge of ature's secrets. 2) Something that charms; any seemingly hidden or secret power; as, the magic of a voice; the magic of a great name. 3) Sleight of hand. -adj. 1) Of or having to do with magic. 2) Seemingly requiring more than human power; startling in performance; producing effects which seem supernatural; as, magic skill. 3) Having the powers or effects of magic; as, a magic land or scene.
Whatever the definition, the bibliographical study of books on magic is not extensive. Besterman lists only four works under "magic," Graesse's being the most extensive by far. In all 3000 published items are identified. Besterman 3653.
