Francis Barrett had an extensive background in the medieval and occult sciences. He originally published this set of books, his only on the subject, in 1801. They were written for those seeking the key to the philosopher's stone and the powers of magic. The illustrations in this set of books were taken from ancient and medieval texts, magical tables, planetary tables, talismans and images of angels and demons. Book One deals primarily with natural magic, talismanic magic, the secrets of alchemy, the occult meanings of numbers, and how the four elements relate not only to magic, but to the various planets and stars. This powerful set of books is as rare today as it was in Barrett's time, which caused great libraries, over the years, to keep rare copies under lock and key.
