Description

The Picatrix is a complete guide to astrological magic including the instructions for hundreds of astrological talismans, ritual and miscellaneous magical information. No other work exerted such a wide influence on medieval and Renaissance astrological magic and it was never published until the 20th century, circulating only in manuscript form. This book includes a Latin facsimile version of Picatrix plus 77 pages of selected English translations edited with a commentary by Christopher Warnock, Esq., the leading traditional astrological magician.

Here is the table of contents for the translation and commentary:

  • Arabic Picatrix, Book I Chapters 1-4 & commentary
  • The Forms of the Planets Book III, Chapter 3
  • Selected Planetary Talisman Translations Book II, Chapter 10
  • Adocentyn, the Talismanic City Book IV, Chapter 3 & commentary

  • Arabic Picatrix Planetary Invocations Book III, Chapter 8 & commentary

  • Invocation of Perfect Nature Book III Chapter 6 Translated by Nigel Jackson & commentary

    The facsimile version of the Latin Picatrix, starting on page 79 of the book, after the selected English translations and commentary is the famed English astrologer William Lilly's copy, British Library Sloane manuscript collection number 3679. While this manuscript is fairly easy to read, it is, however, in Latin and is not an English translation.

    A key text of Arabic astrological magic in Latin, with 77 pages of selected English translations and commentary and a facsimile version of the Latin Picatrix, 150 pages, total 233 pages, 8.5 x 11 inch, paperback.
